Overview

Though there is some road riding on this route, it is all at the beginning. Plus the views and sweet singletrack make it worth it!

Description

This is a nice loop out of Frazier Park starting at the intersection of Mt. Pinos Way and Laguna Trail. Head west on Mt. Pinos Way being sure to observe all right-of-way rules while riding in traffic.

Continue on Mt. Pinos Way for about 1.3 miles to the junction with Frazier Mountain Park Road and head right. Frazier Mountain Park Road becomes Cuddy Valley Road just after the intersection with Lockwood Valley Road about 3.3 miles into the ride. Continue straight onto Cuddy Valley Road for about 0.5 mile and you'll see Scott Russell OHV FR 9N21 off to the right.

Take Scott Russell OHV FR 9N21 and the route will immediately begin climbing into the alpine scenery, quite steeply at times, as you head up the gulch. About 5.5 miles into the ride, West Tecuya OHV joins from the left but continue on Scott Russell OHV FR 9N21 as it bends back to the east. The Scott Russell OHV FR 9N21 may be rough at times due to its grade, but it affords amazing views of the Cuddy Valley below.

Finally, about 7.7 miles into the ride, Cold Springs Canyon OHV splits off to the right. Take Cold Springs Canyon OHV and descend the fantastic 3.1-mile long singletrack. The trail ends back at Mt. Pinos Way by the fire station. Turn left onto Mt. Pinos Way, then after about 0.7 miles turn left onto Los Padres Drive; follow this to the intersection of Laguna Trail and take a right to head back to the start.
