    Welcome... And that's a nice area to move to! Where did you like to ride in LA before you moved?

    While living in LA my closest trails were Santa Monica Mountains, before that I lived in OC and rode Modjeska, saddleback and all trails in that area.
    While in LA my fav trail became backbone trail since it was more or less challenging especially going uphill..
    I usually rode backbone up to Sullivan Canyon single track loop..
    But my fav trails are in Moab and Sedona ;)) Whole Enchilada from the Burro Pass ;))

    Do you like Chicken Nuggets? There’s a ride on Saturday that starts at the Onyx Peak trailhead and heads west to Lightning Gulch to Wildhorse Meadows to SART to Morton Peak to Hangar 24 in Redlands. You are welcome to join and meet us at the trailhead around 7:15am (I’ll still need 30 more minutes to suit up). I can give you a ride back up the mountain if you need one.

    Welcome from back down in da OC.

    I usually get up to Big Bear once or twice a year….this year being the exception. I only made it up to SART once.

    Will do, but heads up, it’s gonna be a looong day in the saddle, and there is a strong possibility we’ll have to ride Morton Peak in the dark, so bring a light. (Or you can skip that last part and bail down Warm Springs Creek Road).

    Hey Alex!!!
    Welcome to imtbtrails!
    Great to have a new member jump in like you did.
    Big Bear is an all time favorite of mine. Years of racing in the 90’s and more recent cruising great trails. Skyline has become my default fav for good reason. I hope I get at least one more trip to BB for I head East.
    This is a fun group of Hooligans and I hope you slap some of them around cuzzzzzz they need it! Lol!
    Welcome Alex!

    I have never heard of Cougar Crest Trail. Based on the video… I LIKE it! Where is the trailhead and where does it end/tie in to?
    Awesome trail, thanks for posting it up. :thumbsup:

    WHAT?! I've posted footage of it here within the last year or so. It's a local favorite of mine on the North Shore and you even get to roll on a lil' bit of chunky SOT to access it from the top. It's a short loop so not really worth the drive all the way up there unless you are riding something else in addition. And yes, it is awesome, indeed!

    Park on Hwy 38 along the north shore off BBL near the trail head, East of Fawnskin. Pedal West a short way then climb Polique Canyon Road (a fire road) few miles up to the top where SOT crosses it. Jump onto SOT traveling East and enjoy the techy chunk. Take that to the junction with CCT and drop in.

    people ride PCT all the time, there cool DH from Onyx Peak ( where chicken nuggets with da sauce start), then you climb Gold mountain and roll to Polique and continue to PCT to they junction with cougar Crest or can ride further on PCT to Delamar mountain and then to Holcomb Valley from there you can ride Hanna Flats to Grays peak, Butler peak or just bomb down to Fawnskin - It's as big of a loop as you can handle it

    You're a mountain biker and your last name is Crashynskiy?
    Is that an omen?
    What bike(s) do your you ride and how are the trails in Finland... or is it Delaware?

    So mistrustful! I’m sure there’s a perfectly logical explanation… :laugh:
