One of the best, most scenic singletracks in all of Southern California, the section of the Gabrieleno Trail from Red Box to Switzer's and through the Arroyo Seco is a very popular shuttle ride. It has a little bit of everything: smooth sections of trail, boulder fields, switchbacks, stream crossings, exposure, technical climbing and technical descending. The scenery ranges from sycamore and oak-filled streamside habitat to waterfalls. And, oh yes, there's plenty of poison oak.
