“Climb "The Beast" and earn your downhill run!”— Justin Terry
Do this early in the morning if possible and try to beat the hikers out because they like to climb up Los Pinetos and having to dodge them can kill the fun.
Drop onto the Los Pinetos trail and after a fast, fun, and challenging descent, you'll make a left which pops you onto a quick run down the Placerita Canyon Trail until you reach the Nature Center parking lot. From here, turn left onto Placerita Canyon Rd. and head back towards CA-14. Go under the overpass and turn left at the light. Head down a little further to Newhall Rd., turn left, head back under the overpass and you'll be back at your car!
