    When was Sullivan Canyon last graded?

    I've been looking at some of the old pictures and it looks so amazing and beautiful compared to what I see on rides now. There used to be lush greenery, great singletrack while now its all dry and barren.

    Did the gas company come through recently or that that still from a few years ago? Do I have to start praying for torrential rains?

    I believe they've been through twice in the past few years.

    What you're looking for is still there, you just need to venture off the main trail and onto the parallel singletracks that cover approximately two thirds the total distance. Most sections flow best while heading down the canyon, and some are good both ways. Get out there and explore. You will be pleasantly surprised.

    This is true, but damn there's a lot of poison oak down there. Best to ride the singletrack in the winter and fall when it dies back a bit.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!
