    Top of the hill at Cherry Canyon and top of the hill above Whiting Woods (Verdugo Mtn). Not my favorite places but certainly the most traveled to/upon.

    Okay, my pictures aren't nearly as pretty or eye pleasing as everyone else's, but I like them because of what they represent. I love an early morning ride where it's slightly sunny on top of the mountains but as you drop you go through a cloud layer and it gets cold and moist. For those that know Sullivan this is the fireroad going to the top and the canyon that you drop into is below the clouds.

    You're kidding, right? Great pix! In all my 20+ year riding the SM's I've only seen it like this a few times, and didn't have a camera with me. Love the sunny blue sky's above with that dense fog, looking like it wants to spill out of the bowl!

    Great photographs!

    We get to experience the "sea of clouds/fog" fairly often when riding in and around the San Gabriels. Love it!

    Hey everyone, I'm new here. There is a canal that I like to ride that gives me the opportunity to take some cool photos.






    There are also some small reservoirs.




    Bonus BEES!

    and this:

    on a day like this:

    Socal Pics Thread-2013-05-12.jpg

    There's some significance to this ride that is probably only known to a couple of us . . . the last time we were here, it didn't go so swell. This time was much better, and while this was probably one of, if not the, most technically challenging ride I've been on, it was still a lot of fun. I'm sure there are plenty of folks out there who can clean the Mt. Zion climb . . . but I am not one of them.

    Chantry Flats? i recognize the rocky exposure and dark canopy. Last time i rode there my buddy messed up his elbow in the beginning and had to ride the rest of the trail. I dont think i've cursed at my buddy that many times before that climb out of the valley. I remember it being relentless and mind numbing... You of course have your own story to tell : )

    Yup, started at Chantry and rode Upper Winter Creek up to Mt. Zion and from there I have no idea.

    I don't know about "plenty of people than can clean the Mt. Zion climb." I have been told there are some, but some of those switchbacks are no joke. One of my favorite SoCal rides for certain.

    This is my local riding area (taken with my iPhone):

    As far as I know, the eastern boundary of 2N10 ends at the top of Club View Dr. (Right up the street from Bear Mountain).

    Back at Sycamore Cyn this weekend, second time since reopening after the fire, and even though its not evident by this photograph, amazingly with little or no rain there is new green growth.

    These are some great photos. Here is one that really shows So Cal. It is from Aliso at top of the World looking over Laguna Cyn with Catalina in the background and the June gloom over the ocean. Plus I was having a crappy day at work at took the afternoon to escape and ride to regain the proper peace of mind I get while riding.
    Enjoy the picture and think calm, happy thoughts of riding down Meadows.

    Were you there today? I was as well . . . however, when I was up there, visibility was less than 100ft due to the marine layer. Didn't see the sun once.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Riding in a heavy fog or marine layer is the best! I was there around 8-ish. Either it's the lack of vegetation or that I haven't ridden much lately but it felt abnormally hot when I was climbing the fire road. It looked like the clouds were rolling in when I was leaving.

    Rode the NASCAR trail in Carlsbad Monday. Very fun little trail not super long (maybe took 10 mins to ride all the way down...including my crash lol). Haven't tried out the rest of the trails there yet but they all look fun

    That is one thing that I miss about the PNW, not enough greenery and trees down here!

    I'm normally at the top of the hill by 7:30a. When I take that bike I hike it up switchbacks. I normally ride Saturdays but I'm starting to go on Sunday as well.

    Think I may have seen you as you started your descent. Do you wear a full face with a Go Pro?

    I was up there last week for the first time. Curious to know what (in general) has changed since the flurry of reviews in the opening week or so.

    Where are some good places to ride around the 210 FWY near Rancho Cucamonga? Do I have to go way more west?

    I used to live by Whiting Ranch and rode that all the time. Now, I'm over off the 15FWY and the 210.

    Any good sites to check?

    Considering jsut a couple runs were open with limited features, alot has changed. They were still working on the trails as we were riding down. They was alot of loose dirt as well. As the day progressed, the trails started getting harder.

    There is Marshall Canyon and Claremont Hills. Marshall Canyon has a fire-road you climb to the top, it meats up with Claremont Hills loop, which if you like fire-roads also has access up to Potato mountain. But with Marshall Canyon there are some fun single-track on the way down that is pretty cool.

    Also try Southridge park in Fontana. They also hold DH races there. I think that's pretty close for you!?
