    Gonna be up there too. Dropping off folks at the convention center, then heading up to the HUB Cyclery for local 411 / trail conditions and maps. Planned Rolling on the trails at 10ish.

    Droping the wife off at 7:30 and then driving back to Desert Hot Springs 1/2 hour away for breakfast , then heading up there, 10 sounds doable. I just hope I can find the trail head, I hope it is marked? PM me your # if you and your son want more company and I'll call you in the morning?

    I'll look at the alternate trail you are talking about and decide in the morning, normaly I only venture on stuff like this with guys like you who know exactly where they are going, out and backs are a safe first time bet when you are alone, or a new territorial ride. To bad we couldn't hook up! Thnks for all the info Mike!

    Woohoo, great to know. Agree, out/back is safe. This trail is very easy to navigate, especially if refer to the simple map I posted. And that little bonus ST is actually easier to find than the upper end of Ramona Trail (which starts as a dirt road with no sign behind the bathroom).

    Next time!!!!

    Have a great ride up there, Strand and HB. I'm holding vigil in OC foothills, got reeled in by the boss...

    Morning drop offs lagged, so I took son up,to Idyllwild to do their trail circuit so that the mileage was more contained. Stopped at the Hub Cyclery for more 411. Temps perfect. Hub folks cool. Trails ridiculously well maintained. Some very difficult to climb soft sections, super fun rollers through the forest with rock problems interspersed throughout. I was blown away by the quality of these trails. Buckthorn maintenance was impressive. Fire road linking the trails. Super fun time.

    Nice!

    Like the Luiqigas Kit .We used to giggle when Phil and Paul would say it as it sounded like... Leaky Gas....

    Do you happen to have a Strava or GPS for the route you did?

    YES, great trails up there. The saturday group ride is good with Hub store. Hurkey creek is slowly re opening, will have to check what is still closed.

    You obviously exceeded your stoke quota for this month. As penance, you must do the FLoop. :sick:

    Looks like I need to get out there my own self.
