This morning I woke up on a mission - to find a bus route that could take me to the trails. What I found was a perfect destination about 11 miles from the house called, no joke, Mission Trails.
I'd never been to this spot, so I basically just wandered around and kept an eye out for singletrack meandering up a mountain. I could see a bunch, but most were separated by the canyon so I had to limit my choices. I went for one with several hundred steps built into the path. They were made of 4x4 posts, anchored with rebar and looked burly as hell. Yeah, it was fun on the way down!
