This is the classic weekend warrior or after-work medium distance ride for mountain bikers on the East side of Los Angeles. Heavier traffic on weekends means you have to keep your downhill speeds lower than usual. Most of the climbing is fully exposed.

Very cool for hiking but it's super narrow and a lot of mountain bikers. Mountain bikers please have bells so we can hear you! You can go on for awhile. We got 8 miles out of our hike.
