Area Information: Los Olivos, CA

Overview: Hill after rolling hill blankets the horizon in every direction. Ever present bovine and oak trees lend the perfect mixture of variety to the landscape. Miles of beckoning single track crisscross their way about the 1200 acres of land that makes up the Dirt Club riding area at Los Olivos. Slightly north of Santa Barbara, Los Olivos is the perfect place to spend one of the weekend days exploring on your all mountain bike. The beginner friendly trails provide a welcoming atmosphere for the entire family. Or if one would rather languish in the tranquility of the area in solitude, there are plenty of places for family and friends to explore nearby from wine tasting at a local winery to window shopping in the quaint dutch town of Solvang.

    The Dirt Club riding area offers two downhill runs, a super d track, a dual slalom course, a killer pump track, and xc trails throughout the property, with plans for more trails in the future. Ideally located in the upper region of southern California, Los Olivos is the perfect getaway to escape to with a bike year round.
