Overview

The Millard Canyon Loop is an alternative to the more popular El Prieto Loop.

Description

Park at Loma Alta Park in Altadena, CA. Takes surface streets (south on Lincoln Avenue, then west on Altadena Drive) to the Altadena Crest Trail entrance. This trail will take you down to the asphalt road that leads to the beginning of Brown Mountain Trail (aka Fern Truck Trail or 2N66).

Climb up Brown Mountain Trail to the saddle. From the saddle, descend the Millard Canyon Trail 2N65 to the Millard Campground. While descending this trail, go straight past the El Prieto Canyon entrance.

Travel through the Millard Campground and take the first singletrack on the left; this is the Lower Sunset Ridge Trail. Ride up this trail until it ends at the Mt. Lowe Road. Go across the Mt. Lowe Road to the start of the Horse Trail (aka Chaney Trail). Continue on the Horse Trail (and cross the Chaney Trail Road) until it ends at the Loma Alta Park where the ride began.
