Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2007: Henry Coe State Park Mountain-Bike Camping / Day 8: Ride from Pacheco Camp to China Hole 31

I've never explored the part of the Park on today's route, so I'm looking forward to it. My route is simple enough: just stay on Coit Road (which becomes Mahoney Meadows Road) and then head down China Hole Trail to the bottom.

I've studied my maps well (it's a useful activity that can be done at night in a tent) and know that there is a fair amount of uphill riding that I hope the 10-ton bike will agree to. Still, I might have to drag the bike up a few segments, not sure. Also, the singletrack downhill China Hole might have some steep edges that require extra care.
