*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Start from the dirt parking area on Old Santa Cruz Hwy about 0.2 miles from the hwy-17 bridge. After climbing OSCH, I plan to try Karl D's route to Laurel via Schulties Rd and climb out on Redwood Lodge Rd. In Laurel we can check out a tunnel portal from the old South Coast Pacific RR. Note that after the recent rains these two roads may be sloppy so a cross or gravel bike might be best. Redwood Lodge takes us to Soquel-San Jose Rd and on the Skyland/Stetson. Optional stop at Summit store for snacks, depending on rider preferences. Then on to Wrights to see tunnel #1, and lastly Skyview Terrace where we'll be *close* to the other end of the Wrights tunnel. Adventurous souls may wish to check it out as well.
