Can't recommend High Trails enough. Marcel arrived on time, in a great vehicle. We went to Camp Tamarancho, as I was only able to do a half day. I was on a Santa Cruz Bronson. Marcels' knowledge,and persona made for a really great day out.

I’ve done many mountain bike tours in the U.S. and internationally and my day riding with Marcel exceeded my expectations! Communication beforehand was timely, he picked me up right on time at pre-arraigned location in a comfortable vehicle. When we got to the trailhead he made sure I had all gear needed, snacks & water, and took careful attention to setting up the very nice bike he’d selected based on my experience, what I ride at home & trails for the day. The trails were AMAZING and Marcel picked a route that was a great balance of challenging and fun! He is clearly passionate about not just riding but ensuring his customers have a special experience. My friends can’t believe some of the great pictures from this outing and I’m definitely hoping to do this again:)

I booked a tour with at High Trails Cyclery with Marcel as my guide. We exchanged a few mails and Marcel knew quickly where and what I wanted to ride. We went to Tammarango for riding great single track. The bikes rented out are high end bikes like Santa Cruz and Ibis. I got a fantastic Santa Cruz Hightower LT. Marcel set the bike up to my length and weight and I was ready to go. Crazy good riding here. Marcel takes very good care during riding, gives advise, looks out for some cool photo opportunities and leads the way for some unexpected rock jumping! Next time when I travel again to SF I would definitely book here again a day, absolutely good fun for hardcore riding

Our family had a fantastic experience mountain biking several trails in Santa Cruz. The owner fitted the bikes for each family member and he made sure to tailor the ride so we ALL had fun. This was an ideal way to spend the day with our teenage sons. The owner of the cycle shop is delightful! He drove to Half Moon Bay to pick us up and then drove us to Santa Cruz to get on the trails. Our family highly recommends High Trails Cyclery if you are looking for a fun experience.
