“A great ride with a few technical sections and awesome views of the North Fork San Gabriel.”— Derrick Davis
The ride follows Booty's Road along the north banks of the river crossing over the North Fork San Gabriel River at Hunt Crossing/CR 258 and then turns east along the south banks of the North Fork San Gabriel River. Eventually, you'll cross the river again at Box Crossing and return back to Russell Park along the same route.
As the singletrack drops into the prairies of the North Fork San Gabriel River, turn right onto Booty's Road and begin the scenic, easy ride along the doubletrack. After passing Box Crossing, be on the lookout for the singletrack veering off to the left. This section rides the high banks of the North Fork San Gabriel River.
After returning to a short section of doubletrack, be on the lookout for a sharp left where the singletrack crosses a shallow creek and then passes through the prehistoric campsite.
After this short section of singletrack, turn left on CR 258 and cross over the North Fork San Gabriel River at Hunt Crossing. The trail begins behind the guard rail after the bridge, just before the entrance to Tejas Campground, with the restrooms on your right. Head east along the south banks of the river, with scenic views of the north banks to your left.
Follow the doubletrack as it turns into singletrack just before at Box Crossing. Here, you can either take the short, steep climb or ride along the banks of the river and cross at Box Crossing. After crossing over at Box Crossing, turn right and follow Booty's Road back to the singletrack that climbs and passes through the hand full of technical sections that lead back to Russell Park along the same trail.
