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"

    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.

    Anyone up for a ride around West LA County/Ventura County in the morning of February 18th? I'm returning to singletrack for the first time in a year after a series of surgeries so I won't be blazing holes in the sky, but I have tried 15 miles on the road without any trouble.

    We'll be doing a MTB ride down the Bell View Trail between Coto de Caza and Dove Canyon to Caspers Park this Sunday leaving at 08:30 from

    the waterfalls/fountains at Plano Trabuco and Dove Canyon Drive. Plenty of parking there too.

    It will be about a 20 mile out and back depending on what we do when we get to Caspers. Consisting of mostly fire road, considered a beginner to

    intermediate mtb trail with nothing real difficult just some wash outs from the last rain and one steep climb to the first gate.

    This route is part of the 50 mile/Rawanda ride done in April every year. We'll be on the mtb tandem and Pat and Maria on theirs with

    a tag behind with their son. We can do a short singletrack we call the roller coaster on the return.

    Bring your camel back and a snack to eat at Caspers.

    Some info links with a map of the trail:

    Does anyone want to shuttle with me and a buddy somewhere in LA tomorrow (3/29)? We've got a four bike rack and two bikes. Picking him up from Culver City at 10 AM. Really down to go anywhere that has a good shuttle run, so open to suggestion. PM me if you are interested.

    Looking for riding partners/groups to do Santa Monica Mountains on weekday evenings (after 5:30ish) and other rides on weekends. Would like to get on some single track and learn the trails around SM. I was an intermediate rider in Michigan before moving to LA and not riding for about 5 years. Just picked up a Norco full suss and a looking to get out and ride.

    Imagine that . . . I TOO am a former Michigander (Detroit 'burbs) and now live in Santa Monica. I ride the SM's regularly, including evenings. Do you have lights? Where exactly are you?

    Riding out here is NOTHING like riding in Michigan.

    Saturday I will be riding somewhere in San Diego County. Probably out toward Pine Valley/Lake Morena but I'm not dead set on that.

    I'm pretty novice on the MTB, but I love to ride. Anyone going for a ride Saturday that wouldn't mind a tag along?

    I'm very self sufficient and consider myself well prepared. I'm a very experienced backwoods hiker so I tend to be a bit of a boyscout when it come to preparedness but not to excess...

    If I can't hit up SART with dv8xin & trmn8er, I'll be riding Santiago Oaks/Weir Canyon tomorrow afternoon around 4pm if anyone wants to join me. I gotta meet more people to ride with. I'm not fast by any means but stay on my bike most of the time.

    Lota good "home" rides in east county SD. Hit me up in PMs, i ride sat/sun almost every weekend and would be happy to show you a lot of those amazingly well hidden gems. Saturday is the light ride and most likely to be the local ride.. best one to tag along with if you are interested. =)

    So Cal is a rather large area, might help to narrow it down by mentioning what city you live in.
