Overview

This is a fun, mixed terrain trail ride. It includes some singletrack with a few mixed ATV trails. It's good for the beginner, but has some challenge for more experienced riders as well.

Need to Know

Run lower tire pressure and be prepared for flats - the rocky sections can be hard on tires.

Description

Leave from the parking area and follow the trail from the dirt lot. You'll pedal uphill slightly and see some different turn offs, but remaining on the trail straight ahead will take you around the mountain.

After the initial small climb there is some short downhill with rocks. A little more uphill leads to some downhill rocky sections.

Some moderate climbing and rocky sections, overall good early morning ride. Oct 10, 2015

 
Just need to be careful of riders going the other direction, great for any level of rider. Nov 29, 2015

Underrated trail, I'm actually disappointed I didn't know about it a long time ago as someone born and raised in the high desert. I rode the loop counter-clockwise and the light to moderate climbing is handsomely rewarded with long, flowing descents. Even if you deviate from the singletrack there are adjacent and equally fun jeep/truck trails that eventually intersect with the loop to get you on the right track, just keep an eye on the GPS. Overall, it's exciting enough to be worth checking out to the experienced riders, yet not overly technical or tedious for a novice, and is excellent training for the more lengthy, challenging rides throughout SoCal. I'm gonna try to make a habit of riding this one any time I'm down here visiting family and friends, weather permitting (stupid winds). Jan 3, 2019
