Have you tried riding that dirt road that follows under the powerlines and parallels the tracks? Could be a fun, off road, fixie route.

yes in fact since they upgraded the power lines it is much more like fire road than singletrack. There is also more trails up on the ridge along SUPER 7 but I have not explored that section.
