    As some of you may know, there's a new trail work org focusing in the Angeles National Forest, Lowelifes Respectable Citizens Club (LRCC).

    Restoration of the long ignored Condor Peak trail is our first major project and our 3rd work day is this upcoming Sunday Feb 2nd.

    Some of you may have ridden Condor pre-Station Fire; however, the trail has sat in disrepair for over a decade. Eventually this will be a killer +10 mile length of single track and once Lightning Point re opens to the public, this trail could also be a shuttle option.

    If you've never been up there, the views are amazing! Looking at the backside of places like Strawberry Peak is really cool. The trail offers visual perspectives on the ANF like no other!

    Lowelifes is using EventBrite for registration and logistics info

    Due to the current snow still in the high country, this time we will be working up from the bottom off of Big Tujunga. The last two trail work days we started from the top thru the Lightning Point campground.

    Our inaugural event was a 2 day campout with 2 work days.

    More blog posts about trail work are on the website too.

    Here's a few photos from our first couple of work days:

    It’s beautiful up there! I did a road ride up to Gleason and was wondering about the mtb situation

    Mikie, our first event was Sat-Sun and there will be more 2 day campouts in the future. Those allow people to come both days or just one. The 2 day events are a lot of work to produce but we are committed to doing more of them as its a blast and great fun. The Lightning Point campground is beautiful.

    Single day events are definitely easier for us to produce on Sundays since it gives us Saturday to prepare. Many times trail scouting or preemptive work is done the day before and its harder to get that done during the work week.
