Overview

Takes the Creek Trail and Elsmere Canyon Fireroad to get to the top of the mountain faster. Use this to ride down the rocky tech at the end of Elsmere Canyon Loop without having to hike up it!

Description

The route starts up the Creek Trail and then goes up some steep fire road for a little until you reach a turnoff with a sign saying "Eagle Pass." There are a lot of steep, sandy sections here that might need hike-a-bike, but riding on the edge makes it easier to ride up.

At the top, there are a couple of big rocks that you can sit on that overlook the freeway and rest of SCV. Then you come down to Elsmere Canyon Loop and get to ride the steep rocky goodness.
