    No, it's San Bernadino Mountains, from Redlands up the back way towards Big Bear area. I can assure you it is well worth the drive at it's arguably some of the best single-track in So-Cal and super scenic too.

    It's not too bad. You seem to climb and decend in both directions so it's manageable. The last 5 miles of the day is tough as you climb up Middle Control Road.

    I like the climb back up Middle. Its ultra smooth and the degree isn't bad at all. You can get moving pretty darn good on that climb.

    Absolutely. Probably Video as well.

    Update: Back home now. NOBODY out there. Went all the way to south Fork and back. 27.23 miles. My new Garmin shows only 2,920 feet of elevation gain, but the same ride on my old Garmin shows almost 3,400. So much for consistency.
    My previous rides it took me all day like 7 hours with resting. Today I did it in 4:34 including several stops. No doubt I am faster on this bike but I sure miss the travel and meaty tires. I need a 2nd bike. Stopped at Hanger 24 for a sampler or three as well. ;-)

    Is that the last climb we did before getting back to our trucks when we rode SART? If so it really wasn't bad at all, especially after the ride at altitude before it.

    Riding Aliso Woods late Saturday morning for the first time. Got a decent idea of what's where thanks to EatsDirt, but is anyone down for a ride? Always easier to find your way with a guide...

    Yes, that's it. However, it is a bit more difficult to deal with after you've ridden all the way to South Fork Campground and back. You and I rode half way there then turned back.

    Trmn8er: myself and a friend were there on Wednesday for the first time we parked and started off Glass Rd. We rode up river Rd to south fork campground and came back down the SART. If we kept going down the trail after Glass Rd where would we have ended up? When does it start to go uphill? We want to maybe try this again but not sure where to start for a longer ride? Thanks

    I've always started at the Post Office and headed toward Glass.

    Personally, I feel that the better half of the ride is beyond Glass Road where you started and where you were pointed when you finished your ride. If you park a little ways down the road from Glass on Hwy 38, where the cafe and convenience store are located in Angeles Oaks, you can start right behind there on a fire road where you climb for about 1/4 mile. Then the fire road veers off to the left and on that point is where the trail head to the best section of the entire ride starts. You drop down into the valley on SWEET single track. You eventually reach a fire road (Middle Road) where you turn left onto it and continue downhill for another mile or so. The trail picks up again on your right and sweeps uphill. It's easy to see. From there, you ride through all sorts of stuff on single track and end up at Glass Road which is sort of the half way point to South Fork campground.

    If we start at the Post office and ride down to Middle Road how do we get back to PO? Do we ride back up the SART? Also if we continue all the way to Glass Rd how do we get back to PO wher we parked? We really don't want to shuttle oh yea how far is it to middle and then glass from the PO? Thanks

    As kragu mentioned, I find it best to start at the Post Office. To answer your question, going the other direction (West) from Glass Road takes you toward Angelus Oaks. It is about 8.7 miles from Glass Road to the Post Office one way. You drop from Glass Road on one of my favorite sections for about 1 mile or so, then start to climb on and off till you pass a creek crossing. About a mile past that, it's mostly downhill all the way to Middle Control Road. From there, it's a fairly long climb back up to the Post Office and Angelus Oaks.

    If you want a longer ride, try the Post Office to South Fork and back as I just did. I used to ride to Glass Road and back (17 miles) often, but I have done the longer set (27+ mile) trip to South Fork a few times as well. If you can do this ride and get back wanting more, then you may want to ride from Lock Levin to South Fork and back. I think that is like 40 miles or more, and should certainly kick your ass. There are more loops you can add on as well for even more fun (and pain).

    I'm always looking for riders whom want to ride SART. I recommend those not familiar to always ride with others, and have the ability to navigate. I ride it alone and even though I am pretty familiar with the trail, there is a fair amount of exposure which could be problematic for a solo rider. Hit me up if you have any more questions about this ride. It is one of my favorite areas.

    Thank a lot for the info. I have a few more questions. if I start at the PO and want to ride down to Glass Rd and back is it easy to find the trails? Once down to Glass Rd how do we get back to PO? Personally I think it would be to much for me now to ride from the PO to the South fork camp and back. What's differnt about the PO to Glass section than the Glass to south fork and back section lots of people seem to like the trail better from the PO?

    PO to Glass Road (and back) is my favorite "short ride" there. At Glass, turn around and back track to Middle Road (AKA, Mill Creek Road). Start climbing Middle Road and stay on it all the way back up to hwy 38. At hwy 38, turn right and ride the hwy about 1/4 mile back to where you parked near the PO.

    The trails in general along this stretch are better. Less exposure. And the section from PO down to Middle Road is epic.

    We do the 8 mile loop...left up Sage then straight up the valley and back down the jumps to the Ranch...with enough light we sometimes do the Boulder Loop off the tar road and that adds another half hour to the ride. Good climb, great fun.
    We are older, slower, steady and fun.

    nothing wrong with slow steady and fun. Are you from Esco? I know a Gene B. that was my middle school teacher.(almost 20 yrs ago.)
    I rode Daley today, rode towards sage then took coyote to diamond back to sage. Then we rode up crest to engelman to hidden springs and rode the jumps back.A lot of climbing for a 10 mile ride but it was a lot of fun.

    that's sound more challenging but more fun than what we usually do, we have done the 3 biaches once tho...like to do that again!
