Has any DCF'er hiked or biked from the the tram NORTH along the trail to the base of the La Luz trail?  I have gone south of there and am wondering if the trail north is doable on a bike.  Thanks.

Cheers, Mi3ke

I've hiked the trail coming down the la luz to the tram. Its very doable but you're almost in some folks back yard a lot of the time.

  Then again, if done correctly, you could always be in someones back yard while riding Trail 365.  I particularly like the house with the backyard scale train set up near Candalaria.  Thanks for the review, i will try it soon on my bike.

When you do ride the foothill trails, and any trail for that matter, please remember that MTBs are supposed to yield to ped and horse traffic. Just a friendly reminder.

Which is why I have a bell, and know how to use it.

Definitely doable. The only thing to keep in mind is that the trail north of the tram is narrow in several spots and could get dicey depending how crowded it is. Another thing to note is that the trail technically doesn't go to the base of La Luz, but rather hooks up with La Luz part way up. So you would have to descend the very lower section of La Luz to get to the parking lot. I don't actually recall ever seeing a biker on that section, though it's been several years since I used to run it, so my memory is not necessarily feeling super reliable on that point. It's that section of early switchbacks toward the bottom of La Luz --difficult to imagine a bike sharing that area with runners and hikers, especially on the weekend when it can be downright crowded.

Oh, you've never seen the Pajama Men? They don't come back home nearly often enough, so you should probably go see them on the 19th!
