    Fantastic! I love riding trails where you can here the water running nearby. Not that I know anything about that here in the desert.
    "Im just going to explore a little bit..."

    Dont make me be the bad guy...

    Do I need a pass to ride this trail?

    Good job! Excuse me...

    Pardon me for interrupting, but where exactly is this and how do I get there from the Los Angeles region? Just the general name of the vicinity and name of the trail will suffice.
    Thank you.
    By the way,
    Sweet, sweet, pics.

    North on I-5. Wait for the mile posts to reset. Right at exit 188. Stop at the "Trailhead" and ask "where are the trails?"

    There are 2-4 different trails pictured. Maybe 40-50 miles of the 600+ miles of singletrack in the area.

    nice SS. Looks like you could use some lock washers though...

    The MRT looks great as usual.

    hopefully see you again this august.

    Ridable? Yes.

    Advisable? No.

    Steeper than it looks (as usual). You still have make the turn at the bottom. Brakes do not work well on the wood and tend to round off the steps (not cheap or easy to replace and we want to keep the trail open to bikes). Bars can get hooked under the railing

    The flight off the bridge funnels you into the narrow rock gap. Slick and uphill (last pic).

    Plus you can not enjoy the view of the creek

    No thank you.

    In summertime , the water level drops, and there are great swimming holes, but the water stays pretty chilly year round.

    Hey, now! I resemble that remark!

    Great pics, and great riding with you and Timmy and Tom on Sunday. I would have hung with you the whole way, but I couldn't resist "the call of the Wall." Eu*#%e to Cr#*t Trail was great, though. I also used my trusty folding saw and cut out that log that was across the road near the bottom, so that section is a screamer now. (When I first hit the trail I started by going up trail for about a mile and came across two downed logs close to each other, about 1/2 - 3/4 mile up. Do something about that, would'ya?). See ya tonight, eh?
