Due to preservation restrictions, much of California’s public land is off limits to 29-inch wheels. But the Paradise Royale Trail, deep in the King Range Mountains off of California’s northern coast, was engineered and built specifically for mountain biking. The 14-mile loop descends briefly and then steadily climbs 1,200 feet out of humid forest. Dominate the 19 gritty switchbacks over a section dubbed “The Prince of Pain," which takes you to Paradise Ridge, a vista of the Pacific Ocean below. Drop down along the final five miles and relish the turns, whoops, and tabletops—designed for guys like you.
