The Chino Hills Ridges Challenge is exactly as titled. As the companion ride to Ride 4, Chino Hills Trails Trek, the Challenge takes on a longer route that explores the central and southeastern sectors of the park. Although the highlow elevation differential is “just” 1,320 feet, there are four challenging climbs along the way, such that the total elevation gain exceeds 2,700 feet. No water is available for a long stretch, so be sure to bring plenty of fluids. Also, be prepared for a microclimate in the Chino Hills that might be warmer than in the surrounding areas.
