“Connecting the Glendale Sports Complex Loop and all major Cherry Canyon singletrack into one ride.”— Martini Linn
Family Friendly Good for hiking with the family. There are sections of fire roads as well.
The start of the Sports Complex Loop begins near the entrance to the lot to the left of the maintenance garage. It loops east then south on the Catalina Verdugo Trail towards Ridge Motorway fire road.
Take this fire road to the Cherry Canyon singletrack network. This route connects the main singletrack descents together with fire road climbs. Begin on Cerro Negro Trail connecting to Canyon Trail and Cherry Canyon Motorway. At the end of the Cherry Canyon Motorway, you'll be at the central hub.
Continue north on the Alpha Motorway as it turns into the Conservancy Trail, eventually connecting with Edison Road. Head onto Liz's Loop Trail which returns you to the Cherry Canyon Motorway.
Plug the route into your Garmin or use the MTB Project mobile app and ride away. Most of the singletrack sections are hardpack with sand. The last singletrack section goes through a shady area so the ground is usually nice and tacky.
