Thanks to MBOSC chapter of IMBA for this Technical steep black diamond course.

An expert type of riding with natural stunts drops and jumps to flat. This course is tailored for mountain bikes with longer travel in suspension and there is lots of exposed roots and ruts that will keep you in your toes.

Soquel Demo is a location that probably ranks in the top three of the favorites of most mountain bikers around the Bay Area. Its official status is different from most other mountain biking locations: Instead of being an open space preserve, or a national, state, county, or city park, Demo Forest is a state forest with lots of technical singletrack trail. On average, it’s a descent from Aptos Creek Road, but it does have a couple of short and steep climbing sections that might catch you by surprise on your first time here. For the most part, its like an amusement park ride, and occasionally throws challenging technical sections at you. Features well-banked S-curves.

 

Demonstration Forest Braille trail

 

It features a number of optional stunts along the way, including some jumps and at least one seesaw. They all have bypass routes, though. The trail does get seriously steep in its descent in a number of places, but even if you’re not an advanced rider, you’ll hardly be caught off guard by any of these. You’ll always have a chance to stop and walk down the trickier parts, unless you’re really not paying any attention. Still, definitely be extra cautious at least during your first ride down it will throw challenging technical sections at you.
