“A long shuttle ride through amazing singletrack.”
Bryce Knudson on Sep 23, 2013
Getting There     GPX File     Print
13.4 Miles 70% Singletrack 1,258’ Ascent -1,758’ Descent 5,002’ Low 6,384’ High
Restrictions
Adventure pass required for parking at South Fork.
Overview
This is a shuttle starting at south Fork Campground lot and ending just outside Angelus Oaks.

Long flowy cross country style single tracks with tight hairpin turns and occasional easy climbs. Much of this trail hugs the hill side and has sttep drops to the right.

This trail finishes with a fire road climb that is not only manageable but quite pleasant.
Need To Know
Requires two cars for shuttle. Shuttle points are about 20mins apart.

This can also be done as an out and back, but if you do that, I'd recommend starting at the bottom (Angelus Oaks) so you get the climbing out of the way first.

Angelus Oaks restaurant is a must have after your ride. Good beer and good food.
Description
First drop a car at the parking just east of Angelus Oaks next to the Angelus Oaks sign. Then drive east up highway 38 to the South fork Campground and get ready for an awesome ride.

From here you combine two trails
Santa Ana River Trail (SART) from South Fork to Glass Road
Santa Ana River Trail (SART) 2E03 Glass Road to Middle Control Road

These trails have tons of tree cover and wind in and out of the trees and along the hill side. Stop and enjoy the creeks then bomb down the wide singletrack sections through the trees.

When you hit the bottom of the second section turn left on Middle Control Road and climb 3 miles out to your car. This road is well used by vehicles so be aware, otherwise this climb is very mellow and the road is well maintained. If you are lucky you'll be treated with a small water fall out of the rocks about 2 miles up.
