The Charlton Chilao Vetter Loop is a large figure-8 loop ride that totals just under 25 miles of riding. The ride is a good mix of singletrack and fireroad riding with terrain ranging from easy to advanced. That certainly does not mean it is a ride for newbies, there is plenty of climbing and technical stuff that will make an inexperienced rider miserable. The more technical parts of the terrain include rock gardens, switchbacks, drops, step ups, roots, and steep ups and downs. In all it is a fun ride and should be on your must ride list if you live or work in the area.
There are many fantastic trails in the area but most of them are closed due to the Station fire in 2009. Chilao Flats is open again and wonderful.
Love the different options of terrain on this trail, the scenery change a bit due to the fires but still joyful. Technical down hill, beware of the loose trail during the dry season.
