The Cerro Alto Trail is one of the most grueling in San Luis Obispo County — but the summit views are unbeatable.
Now, imagine descending the 2,624-foot summit on a mountain bike at breakneck speeds.
This thrilling video provided by Trail Peek takes you behind the handlebars and offers stunning panoramic views from a rarely-seen perspective.
Growing up in Northern California, brothers Zach and Dane Petersen were drawn to the outdoors and developed a deep-rooted passion for mountain biking.
Never miss a local story.
About a year ago, they founded Trail Peek, which produces point-of-view videos covering some of the best trails the West Coast has to offer.
Dane, who graduated from Chico State with a degree in construction management, and Zach, a third-year sustainable manufacturing major, visit the Central Coast a few times each year.
Back in July, the Petersens took on the Cerro Alto Trail, one of the highest points in San Luis Obispo County, and they left with some remarkable footage.
