Soquel Demonstration State Forest (Demo)


Demo boasts epic climbs and descents.

Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF) aka “Demo” is a 2,681 acre working forest established in 1990 and managed by CalFire. Demo is a favorite destination for Bay Area and Santa Cruz County mountain bikers and contains trails for intermediate and advanced mountain bikers, with long climbs and challenging, technical descents. Highlights include Braille, Sawpit, Corral and Ridge trails. MBoSC is currently working with CalFire on construction of a new flow trail.
