There’s a beautiful hike/bike route that’s fun to do and easy to mix both hiking and biking in the outing, which is what we did. Drop your bike off (and lock it to a tree) at the end of Manuel T. Freitas Parkway. Then drive over (Freitas to Las Gallinas to Lucas Valley Road) to the parking lot on Lucas Valley Road at the Nimes Fire Road directly across from Mt. Muir Ct.
You then take the trail to the left of the equestrian facilities and head up the hill to the ridge trail. As you walk along the ridge trail, with fairly moderate rises and falls, you have beautiful views of the Sleepy Hollow and Terra Linda valleys on either side. At the end of the trail, there’s a fairly steep decline down to the end of Manuel T. Freitas Parkway, where you’ve parked your bike.
Now you have two choices: you can take the same trail back to your car, or you can ride the same surface road path back to where you parked your car. Enjoy!
