mt wilson,, in La Crescenta i believe,, shuttle up.. bout 12-14 miles of downhill,, well acutally single track that points down hill :D rocky, sandy, switchbacks, some small drops. theres a few short ups.. only a couple miles worth. not steep.. guys pedal big bikes up. some hike it. usually takes 2.5 - 3 hrs or so.

I've done it and know it. I can shuttle 3 riders. Sat. works betta for me. Post details if anybody 's gonna make this....I would say that if it does rain on Fri then conditions would be prime on Sat(no rain predicted)

210 fwy to the ARROYO/WINDSOR exit. Go north (towards the mountains). Parking lot is on the left side about a mile up.



Not sure if I will make it. Have to go to my neices b-day party at 2. Gonna try though. What time is everyone thinking? meet at 8? 9? Saturday or sunday works for me.

OH! I forgot to mention... I found a trail that bypasses the middle climb (the one from the hotel to the paved road) It's short, very loose, and rutted and kinda steep. It drops you at the fire road/paved road about 200 yards from the next trail. It shortens the ride by like 5 - 10 minutes but completely negates the uphill. With some work it could be a really fun trail. Maybe after the next rains.

The only problem is that I am not sure if it's exactly open/legal.

Is the trail your talking about the one after you come out of the trees at the corner looking west that one is a illeagal trail called monkey face, get caught on that one 300.00 fine. The rangers watch that one w/ binocs.:mumble: By the way watch going around the blind corners somebody's putting rocks there & they're bending branches at face level, so be careful:cool:

Might be that one. Not too sure since there are about four that I can think of that are there as you come out of trees.

The rocks aren't new but the bent branches are. The rocks I don't mind so much but the branches suck. I don't know about you all but if I catch someone booby trapping these trails I will beat the **** out of them right there.

HEAD COUNT

Who's going saturday, who's going sunday. What time do you all want to meet at the parking lot? Who has shuttle trucks? I can take us up to get the trucks, but I can only fit 2 bikes in my car.

If you all flake I am riding anyway.
