Black Star Canyon to Beek’s Place (Main Divide)

Park at the paved end of Black Star Canon Rd in Silverado, CA. Your ride begins at the gate. This ride is suitable for anyone. Lesser experienced riders may have a hard time getting all the way to the top, but with practice each trip will be easier than the last. The route is 100% dirt fire road. It can be done at night. It should not be ridden during or recently after rain due to the clay-like soil composition of much of the ride. (Sticky mud.)
