Introducing new singletracks in the picturesque hills of Shady Canyon: Rabbit Run, Cattle Crest, Fox Run, and Shady Oaks singletracks located in the new Quail Hill section of Irvine. This ride is docent led but offers tremendous scenery, exhilerating climbs/descents, and hand-manicured singletracks. DIRECTIONS: From the 405 Freeway exit at Sand Canyon, go south toward Shady Canyon Drive past a traffic circle onto Shady Canyon Drive. The Quail Hill Trailhead is approximately 100 yards south of the circle past the fire station on the right hand side. For ride availability check the Irvine Ranch Nature Conservancy website.

Great stuff with Jonna..
Garmin 205. Will download next time. WATCH for cameras before 7am. I got flashed entering Quail trail, but not at Cattle Crest or others
Some pretty gnarly sections coming down to bottom. Gorgeous and easily accessed. Just watch out for rangers and cameras before 7am
Nice to ride a new area. The group ride was new to me. Too many stops I get cramped up. Thanks for the ride though
