    Idea! Trails in Glendora! HELP!

    Hello been a while since I posted. About a year ago I moved to Glendora and I heard that there are awesome trails around here. I think there are literally like 5 min away from my house

    Anyone from the area recommend any good ones? Also safe since I'll be riding solo since I don't have anyone to ride with

    It's been over a year since I biked so I am pretty out of shape. Nothing too extreme, I used to bike in Mission Trails in San Diego. I am really eager to get back and rip the trails.

    Looks good, where could I park my car though? Climbing is gonna be a pain since I am so out of shape. But I love feeling the burn feels good I am aching to ride again. Most likely this weekend.

    Marshall cyn, you can park at the school on Wheeler or to miss out on some climbing, you can park at the staging area above Marshall cyn golf course on Stevens Pasture Rd.
    Also, Bonelli park there are also tons of trails, park at the park and ride off of the Via Verde off ramp. Incycle in San Dimas, Arrow hwy and Bonita ave, is an awesome shop and they can tell you of all the local trails.
    I don't live in that area anymore, I get to ride down there ever so often and enjoy it when I do.

    Look up Crazy Bear Shuttle. He runs a van and hits Glendora mountain road trails on the weekends. Real nice guy and there is usually a few people on the bus. The east side trails are easy to hard. West side trail just hard. But you should definitely hit him up

    Two places to park for the Monroe Truck Trail ride on Glendora Mountain Road. First option, this ride is located within Nat'l forest area so you'll have to have a forest adventure pass to park at the lower trail head which located at the sharp hairpin turn to the left (going uphill). Second option, you can park for free along the dirt road below the Nat'l forest signs. There's almost always cars parked there, you can't miss it. Then you just pedal up the road 1/2 mile or so. This is one of my favorite local rides!

    Thanks for the recommendations. I am getting overwhelmed by the choices. I was just there in Incycle I couldn't be there more because I had class, I was looking for some new gloves.
