This is the longest singletrack in the forest and it's one of my favorites. You have the option of doing this ride as an out-and-back trip or as four different loops. In fact, since every option is a great ride, consider doing each one during the course of the season. You catch magnificent vistas of the Santa Ana River valley and mountain ranges, cross several streams and cruise through small meadows. You ride through miles of beautiful ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine, California black oak and Engleman oak forest. The downhills are fast and exciting while some of the climbs are short and steep but not difficult. Take plenty of food and at least two water bottles for these rides.
