    Sullivan Ridge / Sullivan Canyon

    What's the status on the Ridge/Canyon? Are they rideable?
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    The ridge is rideable. I rode it this morning while there were still two fire trucks and 5-6 crew on site. The burn abuts the road for a short distance, but the road is perfectly passable. There was a road closed sign on the edge of the paved road down near Casale as it turns into Sullivan Ridge Fire Road, but being off to the side it wasn't clear if it was really closed, and nobody seemed to be giving it any thought.

    I have no idea on the canyon road, but the fire was supposed to be only 7 acres, so I'm not sure it even got down to the canyon.

    Yeah, I think it was Friday? We could see the smoke from my office in El Segundo and it looked like it was around that area.

    There were 2 fires - one in Rustic Canyon (that may have affected Sullivan Ridge), and another in the Sepulveda Pass near the Getty. The one in Rustic Canyon was apparently very small and put out quickly.

    As mentioned by OneTimeCRX, the first fire was near Sepulveda Pass. As that one was getting mopped up, the second fire started. It was reported at 12:28pm Saturday. Although news reports say Rustic Canyon, it appears to pretty much be on Sullivan Ridge and then heading down into Sullivan Canyon. It barely burned the west side of Sullivan Ridge, which could be considered Rustic Canyon.

    I cringe every time I think about going riding on the ridge during this heat wave... I can't imagine how tough it was for the fire fighters who had to wear all that gear and face fires in addition to the hot temps.

    Rode the ridge and the canyon tonight. There's a small burn area right on the ridge, down to the pavement, but its completely passable and the canyon is not affected at all.

    Yeah, expect a Sullivan Canyon closure (or at least partial closure) soon:

    More Work Taking Place in Sullivan Canyon Starting Early October

    See you at Capri and Amalfi around 6:45 PM.

    Gonna have to start hitting the Westridge Singletrack as a way back down on weeknight rides - should still be able to finish off with the Horse Trail down to Old Ranch Road.

    Let us know if the Gas Co has started closing any sections already... I hope to make it up there on friday and hope it's still open.

    I really hope they don't touch the singletrack. The fireroad area was just starting to get fun too, but I guess they have to do what they have to do.

    Rode down the canyon last night. They're starting to work on the fireroad and pretty much all of the fun parts of that are gone. The single track hasn't been touched.
