Description

Dreaded Hill lives up to its name...if you are traveling up it. There are steep sections and short switchbacks making for a dreadful climb or blissful downhill.

You gain serious speed going downhill, so watch for the occasional ruts and turns. There is no shade for most of the trail. At the summit awaits a grand view of Whiting out to the shore and Catalina on a clear day. Many people access Dreaded Hill "from behind" via Four Corners, then traverse down it into the lower Whiting trail system.

This is a fun route through what is primarily XC riding in Whitting Ranch.  I went through Sage Scrub, Live Oak, Cattle Pond, Cactus Hill and Sleepy Hollow.

Open Cycle Gravel Bike. Grinding on 42 F and 42 rear to get up this steep climb...especially the very first section. A 38 F would have been nice! 22mi — 2h 30m
