    Are you kidding me? PLENTY!!! Red Box to Switzwer is flippin' sweet! El Prieto is a fun little AM type ride. Mt. Wilson.... Man, there are plenty. My suggestion: Go to REI or you LBS and pick up/ browse through a mountain biking book of the San Gabriel's!!

    Ohhhh.... Uhhhhhh...... Oh Man, The San Gabriel's $uck!!! You don't want to go there. You would hate it. All firerorads. Poison Ivy. Hot. Ninety-nine percent climbing. Three foot deep stream crossings. Hiker's are mean. The Red Box to Switzer Trail is as flat as a bike path. Pretty boring place is you ask me.

    Hey 'Fiend, you think tcard fell for it?

    Fiend is correct. Now that you know, shhhhhhhhh! I will do my part by not advertising any more. As for the multi-use label. True, most trails are multi-use. Show respect!! No trailblazing. Minimize skidding (i.e. erosion), obey basic rules etc. You MUST also realize many HIKER'S (of which I am also one) consider the area to be "their land." Allow them to pass, say hello, wave, talk to them, smile- anything! Try not to be a stereotype mountain biker. Before class ends, 1) don't advertise the trail 2) be considerate of hiker's. Class Dismissed.

    Too late.

    Seriously though, all the trails mentioned here, and others, are multiuse. They get a lot of hiking traffic as well as occasional horses. Responsible trail use will keep them open to us all in to the future. Minimizing mass advertising on forums like this helps too.... Rant over.
