Starting and finishing at the same point, this is a perfect loop to get your legs and lungs ready for base mileage, and to prepare you for even more demanding rides later in the season. After a brief paved road section, you'll be climbing Monrovia Canyon Truck Trail, then make a left on Rincon-Redbox Road (2N24.2) that will take you to the Mt. Wilson Observatory and the beginning of the Mt. Wilson shuttle ride!

Need to Know

Make sure you get a full face helmet and elbow and knee pads for the descent from Mt. Wilson! This ride is NO JOKE and should be prepared for and taken very seriously, also its a good idea to wear SPOT GPS locator at all times.

Hi, I did this route las Saturday June 10th 2018 and found a lost bike bagpack Orsprey color Grey with plenty of stuff inside. It was laying on the side of the truck road already for a while since there were ants already settled inside and some of pack food out of date. If you think it belongs to you, then you may tell me its content and we can arrange a pick-up. My phone: 5134104811. Naxo. Jun 10, 2018
