“Sweet singletrack with lots of technical riding.”
Christopher Woodruff on Jun 1, 2013
Getting There     GPX File     Print
1.6 Miles Singletrack Type 12’ Ascent -711’ Descent 1,324’ Low 2,024’ High
1:19 average ride time for 8.1 miles. Details

There are a couple of splits in the trail, but they come back together. I usually stay left on the first split and right on the second split. Enjoy the fantastic technical descent with drops, tight switchbacks, stream crossings, and rock gardens. The vegetation around the stream provides for some great shade, but it also supports quite a bit of poison oak. This is really some of the best singletrack in SoCal.
