Mountain Biking in the Mendocino Forest

Rob and I spent last weekend at the super lovely Mendocino Woodlands Camp. We were there for three days of mountain biking along with 100 other riders and 20 children at the annual M5 retreat.
Our little cabins lacked insulation, running-water and electricity, but made up for it with large windows, porches and stone fireplaces in each room.
The camp was built in the 1930's as part of the Works Progress Administration.
You're 9 miles of dirt road away from Highway 1 and deep in the redwood and fern forest out here. It would be a fantastic place for a rustic family wedding or a weekend reunion.
Our friend Murphy organized all kinds of activities for the group. From mountain bike rides (of course) to naturalist hikes and t-shirt painting for the kids.
Plus, three meals a day of gourmet catered farm-to-table food and locally-brewed beer.
Such a fun way to spend a weekend! I'm looking forward to going again next year.
