A popular and moderately challenging mountain biking loop is to start at the Wintu Trailhead and make a counterclockwise loop by heading out on the Wintu Trail, climbing up the Escalator, riding around Mule Mountain, take a climb to Mule Mountain Summit, then return to the parking lot via Snail Trail and the Mule Mountain Trail. Another fun loop is to start at the Oak Knoll Trailhead, ride up the Mule Ridge Trail, down Cosmos Way, and back to the trailhead via the Princess Ditch Trail. For mountain bikers, be sure to check out the Enitcer trail, a purpose built jump line. At the bottom, climb back to the top via the Owen’s Run trail and take another lap.
