With over 100 miles of singletrack that snakes across more than 200 square miles of rugged, open desert hills, Punta San Carlo’s (PSC) network of biking trails is unrivaled for the sweeping beauty and sheer isolation it offers. Banked speed runs, technical drop offs, hidden canyons, and smoking descents that deliver breathtaking ocean views are all part of every ride, and the only folks you’ll ever see on the trail will be the ones that left camp with you! Carefully developed over the last 20 years, the challenges of our trail system ranges from beginner to expert and offer something for riders of every skill level. The crown jewel is a run through the Badlands, a winding, intricate arroyo maze nicknamed “The Little Grand Canyon,” that has been featured in Bike Magazine spreads as well as in multiple mountain biking videos. It’s one of the reasons PSC routinely draws some of the top pros in mountain biking – Cam McCaul, Tyler McCaul, Matt Hunter, Chris VanDine, Geoff Gulevitch – as regular visitors. Whether your fix is an easy pedal along an empty coastline, a technical descent through off-camber twistys, or a white-knuckle run downhill, we’ve got the goods for you! detailed trail maps are available in camp.
The mountain bike trails are open all season and detailed trail maps are available on our About page. Each person is provided with a trail map when upon arrive at the Solo Sports base camp and we are always happy to make recommendations on the rides best suited to your skill level – or even join you on the trail!
You’ll need to bring the basic: Shoes, bike shorts, jerseys, helmet, gloves, pedals, camelbacks, protective pads (if you use em), but that’s about it. We have all the tools you need to swap out your pedals or make fitting adjustments to dial your ride in. If you didn’t plan on riding but wind up changing your mind, we also have an assortment of Troy Lee helmets, DaKine backpacks, and flat pedals on hand if you want to take an easy spin around the flat or just down to the point for an early morning surf check
With our all-inclusive package, everything else is included. We have a fleet of top of the line rides from the legendary Santa Cruz Mountain Bikes in a variety of models and sizes that are ready to roll. Although we always suggest that you bring your pedals so the cleats match your shoes, we have a mix of pedal sets – both flats and clip-ins – from Crank Brothers and Shimano on hand as standard equipment.
