“Some of the best biking in the San Gabriel Mountains.”— Alex Fore
After Chilao, the next section links up to Vetter Mountain. There is one fast and loose descent, but be aware that there is also a nasty road climb in between the two. This section has seen major impacts from the station fire. Nearly all of the trees are dead, and deadfall is a common problem on trail. Riders will also see lots of poodle dog bush.
Once you reach the Vetter/Charlton Flats area, the descent to Big Tujunga Creek is one of the most fun in the San Gabriel Mountains, if you like it rough and rowdy. After reaching Big Tujunga Creek, there is a spur trail that goes up to Big Tujunga Canyon road, while the main trail climbs out to the Angeles Crest Highway. After crossing the ACH, the trail descends shortcut canyon down to West Fork Campground in the canyon north of Mt Wilson.
