    I ride from home and head up the ridge via Capri off sunset and drop down into the canyon near the top of the ridge. You can also drop down into the canyon much earlier from the ridge via squirrel cage (haven't done this in a while). Or you can park on Queensferry and drop directly into the canyon.

    Hmm no idea where any of that is. I've never ridden either Sullivan. Is it mostly singletrack?

    Yes and no. The ridge is a fire road, though there is single track that parallels much of it called Jedi. Jedi is a fun little track with some nice features built into it. I suppose you COULD ride up it, but man it would not be fun.

    The canyon USED to be an unkept fire road that was actually a lot of fun and there was some great single track built that paralleled it. With the recen repairs by the gas company, the main track is like a freeway now an pretty uninteresting, but the side tracks are still there.

    Here's a video of the main trail:

    You'll see some singletrack exits here and there, which is what 007 is talking about.

    The last time we were there, it was an 18 mile loop with 2K feet of climbing. Though this week AH want's to ride "Hell Hill" :skep:

    You're welcome to join, most definitely. It's a fun track for sure . . .

    Ugghh. Got the text from AH. May have to bow out of this one, still deciding. I think it may be a bit much for me after a long period of inactvivity due to back injury. I might do a shorter ride with a co-worker in S.M. mountains. I'll let ya'll know

    Knowing that you're coming off a BACK injury, you may want to take it easy . . . this trail has some chop in the DH that might be a bit rough for ya. I'm thinking of heading out for something more tame on Sunday with my nephew if you're interested. Not sure where we'll be heading though.

    Somebody just posted that Gatos Ravine was pretty muddy, and there's a decent chance of rain from tonight through Saturday, so probably not...

    Ya, southern California a big place. What city/town will you be visiting or working in?

    Night riding is excellent in the relatively mild SoCal winters, so post up if that might be a possibility (during the week) as well.
