Mountain Biking Aptos Fire Road
#123 of 1,001 mountain bike trails in California
Follow fire road east as it rolls along maximum 3% till Bottom of incline at about 4 miles. Incline ranges from 4 to 10% for couple of miles and then at top of Incline it backs off to max 7% up to Sand Point at 9 miles and 1600 feet. A lot of people never go past here there is a nice view on a clear day with benchs. Road gets pretty steep on and off after this sometimes reaching 28%. 12.5 is Overlook and the top also the Entrance on Demo if your doing the Big Ride. If not turn around for a 12.5 downhill which is never a bad thing.
Good Single Speed climb or BIG ride
