Anderson Truck Trail
So yesterday I decided to adventure a little further up Anderson Truck Trail than I normally do with Aquaholic, Tim, and Mondo opened up school for me and showed me all the "lines" (I use that word loosely here) I used the ride as more of a scouting trip than a see what I can do ride. Airtime has never been something I have been comfortable with so some of this stuff was downright scarely. I did manage ride enough of the stunts to build a little confidence in my new long legged ride (Specialized Enduro Pro). I think the extra climbing needed to get up to here is going to become the routine. Here are a few pics from the "show" the rest of the guys put on.

One full-face helmet fully paying for itself. He was shaken up pretty good, but alright.

I would prolly take the wrong line anyway. And I couldn't even get up the rock to crash on the other side. I'd prolly just stack just before it.

Hey guys, that place looks fun. I recently moved to SoCal and have been looking for places to ride. I live in Murrieta have been trying to put some time into making Superman ride able again. I also found an abandon DH trail dropping off Ortega Hwy into Lake Elsinore, been putting some work into this as well. I have heard things about good riding off of Anderson Truck Trail, haven't found it yet, ill have to go look closer.
shred the gnar...
