I wasnít expecting  to ride Grinder, certainly not on my  XC bike but due to logging in the Genesis area I was forced to divert from Katore Rd down Grinder.

Grinder didnít rate highly on my experiences in the Redwoods, for the most part it is a  straight trail that follows the fall line meaning a lot of brake is required.  A few ruts and roots keep you on your toes  but until the trail takes a turn near Nursery  Rd there really isnít much to get excited about.

The section  at the bottom that runs parallel to Nursery  Road shows a bit more character winding its way toward the Creek trail exit.

Not on my  recommended list but very ridable.


This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
