An easy dirt service road that slices through nice country in Powder Canyon and Schabarum State Park

Description

From the Powder Canyon side, southeast, it's an easy shaded ride up the canyon for 3/4 mile to a three-way intersection. Full-left, and severely uphill, is Purple Sage Trail. Soft-left is a dead-end service road. Straight continues Powder Canyon Rd (on the right, take notice of the narrow, steep singletrack snaking down from the highest peak, there are a number of fun singletracks starting from that highest point).

From the intersection, the wide, hard-pack road drops down steeply, swerving easily beneath large trees, then flattens out a little bit. In a quarter-mile or so, merging from the right beside the trunk of a tree, is a wide uphill singletrack, the start of another trail, the Schabarum Trail Extension.

Continuing down from there, the trail just gets wider and easier until you reach a large horse stable. To the left is a bridge to the parking lot, or to Schabarum Trail.

This trail is managed by two different agencies. From the Powder Canyon side in the south-east, to just past the intersection area, is Puente Hills Habitat Preservation Authority. From that point north to the stables is Los Angeles County Parks and Rec.
