    Weir Canyon Ride

    Well I went for a ride today at Weir Canyon. This is a relatively easy trail and its only four miles. It more of a training ride than a technical ride. It's way lot easier than chutes or waterfall, the usual trails I do. Anyways, I had a great ride, wasnt very hard. After, we went up to the santiago area to do some jumping. We caught up with the people from the Memorial Ride and there was a lot of people. Anyways, we just did the jumps and had a lttle fun.

    A little overcast in the morning














    Well it was a pretty nice day to ride, not too hot and not too cold. Great times.... I'll probably be going out there next week also.

    Looks like a nice easy trail for a beginner. Are there any technical or steep uphill/downhills? I'm looking for a place to bring my newbie friends so I don't scare them off. How do you get there?

    Its actually a fairly easy trail. Nothing challenging really. But there are a couple of spots where it gets steep going down and up. A couple of switchbacks here and there and thats mostly it. The trail is near Snatiago Oaks (opposite sides) so you can ride that afterwards if you want. I think that the two trails are connected somehow but Im not entirely sure. You can find the information Here. This site has some pretty good information on other trails around the area.

    Yes, these trails all hook up with Santiago Oaks and Irvine Park. It's really a pretty good network of trails. It can easily accomodate riders from beginner to advanced - XC to DH/FR. I live just off of Weir Canyon also. What's your friends name or handle?

    Wier Canyon from Robber's

    If you know how to get to Chutes and Waterfall, the basic answer is that you go right instead of left when you come down from Robber's. If coming from the actual peak, you're really taking a hard left. If you go down below Robber's and come back up, then you take a left at the "TRAIL" sign. The connecting trail is actually pretty fun - a few nice, rocky areas. You won't have any choices to make until you get join a dirt road next to some houses. You'll pass some metal barriers. If you go left, you'll go into the neighborhood where the 'normal' Wier Canyon rides start. You'll go right on the street, take a left near the dead-end and take a right to go uphill on the road until you hit the cul-de-sac and trailhead. The trail will eventually dump you back on the same dirt road.

    If you go right instead of left when you first hit the dirt road, you'll see the Weir Canyon loop trail on your left just a little way down and again with metal pole barriers and can do the whole loop trail backward, eventually ending up at the trailhead/cul-de-sac. I've never done this trail in that direction, so I can't comment on which way is better.

    Hope this helps...

    I have a book that lays out a ride called the Iron Man. It is basically the Wier loop and Santiago/Irvine loop connected. I've done it a couple of times. Lots of uphill and fun down hill on chutes. Great Ride.
