    Got a last minute invite from a friend "hey Jaime want to ride ?" I said "bro, here in corona is muddy OC probably is muddy.. only place I think is Sycamore, but yes I'm down !! he said "not Sycamore, I'll show you some trails that don't get so much attention.. Cool !!.. drove south towards Elsinore, exit Bundy canyon until it changes to Scott RD park on the street and after we pedal under the 215.. there you go !!! we rode next to a couple cars parked on the trail head and there is a truck wrapped with FOX and RIDE FOX decals...Mmmm wonder who is the owner... I remember our beloved @ridinrox mentioned trails close the 215..well this were those trails... my friend said some of the pro's come to these trails to train....nice !! we climbed for about a mile and a half, easy climb and then some techy climb but all doable, we saw 4 or 5 guys building/digging a trail close to the entrance, thanks guys !!! well, my friend mentioned a couple of trail names.. Distortion, Revolution,Rabbit hole, DD and the one we were climbing Angry miles:mad: ... perfect weather, hero dirt, cold breeze, no rain just cloudy like black clouds oh yeah perfect !! we started on Rabbit hole fun flowy trail, berms, paved corners, rock drops, even a branch that can take you out in a split second (4:22) !! traction was great on my tires, but think I can run a little lower psi..well next time will try less psi...we finished Rabbit and climbed a little more to get to DD and saw the trail builders taking a break and said thanks to them ! and there you have a photographer on an upper trail, like 100 yards or so taking pics of a guy riding a YT red and a YT black jersey I asked my friend if that guy was Aaron Gwin but he said no, because that rider were skinny and looked younger than Aaron, we didn't got close to don't disturb the photographer but we got to witness a couple of jumps and whips, really cool man !! well time to get going on to DD, even though is a short little trail it is really fun !! sadly my gopro died right before DD. We finished with a big smile and we rode away... got out to a good ride with a good friend on new dirt and got to see a pro ! A perfect day on my bike !! :thumbsup: hope you guys like the video (select 1080p) and the pics !!

    That's Gwin's truck. I saw it in Temecula and said hi to him while he was awaiting his food.

    Nice discovery and great ride report. Those trails look like great fun. Rox and @doublewide know about the goods on that side of the Santa Anas.

    Gotta let it run a bit more Jaime - put that Snow Summit experience to work and let momentum and your bike's capabilities carry you up and over the little features and chunk. I get it though, first run on a new trail is all about recon. A+ for getting out there and finding such a great riding zone, and thanks for the video.

    That was Gwin, he was doing a photo shoot for MTBUK. And that first trail you were on in the video was Distortion not Rabbit Hole. Rabbit hole takes you furter out into the canyon.
    Thx for postin up, fun place!

    It's there, it's just back at the top of the landing... Rabbit Hole is down that fire road a few feet to the right.

    Looking at Apple's Maps, it looks like where Bundy changes to Scott Rd, there's a grocery store (Menifee Market & Feed, 26035 Scott RdMenifee, CA 92584)

    Did you see this? Is this (near) where you parked?

    I parked on mapleton and keller rd, you go on keller rd and as soon as you cross the 215 left on scenic view drive and there you see the entrance, just go right on to the climb and you'll star to see the signs for the trails. I was told that some cars were broke in at the trailhead.

    I believe that's 6 Overall World Cup Championships (2 for Richie (EWS) and 4 for Aaron (DH)) right there, oh - and a Junior World DH Championship for Richie. Pretty good riders that Yeti found and developed! Don't know who the third person is, but he/she is pretty lucky, as is the photographer.

    Edit: Catharine Pendrel - Canadian XC racer. Seems she has two world cup titles and a world championship too. Not too shabby. That jumps up the group tally quite a bit. Fast company right there.

    Strange - I visualize someone different when mentioning Canadian female XC racers. :oops:
