Sunset Peak motorway from Glendora Ridge Road to Wheeler St in La Verne

This trail starts at the "yellow gate" off Glendora Ridge road. It has approx 3 miles of gradual uphill climb before descending down on the sunset peak motorway. There are some pretty good sized ruts as well as areas of washed out motorway with jagged rocks. Don't be fooled that it is all downhill, there are a couple decent climbs along the way and there is no shade. The Trail is easy to distinguish and has beautiful views of the valley below. The Trail concludes into a gated neighborhood in La Verne off Wheeler street. The gate to get out of the neighborhood is only open via remote control, however, to the east side of the auto gate is a personnel gate which you can exit through.
