    Head up the right hand Englishmen Loop. straight at intersection, look for right turn onto Lost Cabin. Take right on Eucalyptus Loop to top. (For longest ride, left on Eucalyptus, Enchanted Loop, then continue climb back on Euca). Right onto ? Trail up to Empire Grade. This gives you access to campus.

    Before crossing the road, there is a single track just inside the fence going to right or down hill. This is Mailboxes. Great flow on the top, with optional jumps and features. Two steep technical sections. At bottom head right and then right to get back into Wilder. Follow left to get to field near lower High St. semi legal.

    Over on campus only the fire roads are legal. All the single track is biked a lot. I’ll get you some info on those. There are a few sweet runs that connect down to U-Conn or Rincon, back to Emma McCray (which is a great flow-y downhill) ride to parking lot, down to Rt 9, up through Costco and the bike path that goes up to Escalona Drive. City ride back to rental place. I’m on the route. Stop in and say hello.

    Another option in Wilder is to loop back down Bowman (?) toward 4 Mile beach and then ride bluff trails to 3 Mile and back into Wilder Ranch. Not technical or exciting along the cliffs, but pretty.

    I also liked Cow Bell(?) and Horse Trail.

    More later.
    Thanks for all the tips (again).

    Stoke to share! It's been three long dry months living way to close to a way to pacific Pacific, but I got a nice surf in this morning in Ventura. Nothing perfect, but everything magic. Sunny day let me wear the 3/2, nice view of the islands from the light offshores, and lines rolling down the point at low tide. Yes please.

    Rode the new board that I've been looking at for a month. First time I've gotten a board custom shaped. 8'0" mini-longboard, setup 2+1. It did it all. Knee paddles out to the lineup, sharp bottom turns, snaps off the top, and then enough foam to get forward and noseride a nice clean wall down the beach. So stoked. So so stoked.

    Looks like you missed Johnny Harborside.

    Anyway, Cowells is in better condition than I thought. It needs some solid swell to get in there right now, but the 8@12 was making thigh to stomach high rollers with even a few standing up. About 120 yard rides, occasionally longer. But certainly a log wave.

    Weather patterns been good for swell generation recently. As well as holding back the typical spring on shores. Looks like they should be rolling through all month. Perhaps youíll score some quality.

    120 yard log rides sound good to me. I guess one thing that hasn't been covered was rental shops near Cowells? I'd imagine there are shops with foamboards everywhere near the wharf.

    Yup.

    Iíve got a log and a Costco foamy youíre welcome to borrow as well.

    The log is a Ď63 Rick. Barely any rocker, huge concave through the tail and big ass skeg. Weighs about 30#. It is a log.

    We'll be in a "Kia Rio or similiar" so not sure if we can get the board(s) from your house to the beach, but I'll see what's up when the time comes. Appreciated!

    Iíve got a soft rack as well. But the Rick might crush the Rio.

    Got back out to Cowells yesterday just as the tide slipped below 1 foot. It was fun. Suuuuper long rides. Several from the top to the beach. We did have a solid swell. About head high on the outside, dropping to waist or even thigh by the beach.

    I bet it was even better as the tide dropped negative.

    It is still breaking in there but it takes swell.

    Am I too late to offer SC restaurant tips?

    Vasilis is a great Greek place we used to go to all the time when we lived in the area. Great chicken kebabs and garlic bread.

    Right around the corner from Vasilis is the best chocolate place in the world, Richard Donnelly Chocolates. The guy makes his chocolate from scratch, and has won several awards.

    And, perhaps surprisingly, there is a pretty good Chinese restaurant in Felton called Chopstixs. If you happen to be hungry and close by, itís not a bad choice.

    Also, you can eat at the club house at Pasatiempo golf course, which is not bad.

    Edit: Oh, and while you are in the area, pick up a loaf of Kellyís sourdough bread. You can find it in any of the local grocery stores, but they also have their own place Kellyís French Bakery. Itís a little different from most of the other sourdough breads in area (which I also like), softer, milder, and highly addictive. I have to get a loaf any time I go back.
