Backbone Trail: Corral Canyon to Kanan Dume Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Thanks to advocacy groups like the Concerned Off-Road Bicyclists Association and the International Mountain Bicycling Association, the Backbone Trail is still open to mountain bikers. This section of Backbone is cherished by many as the best singletrack action in the Santa Monica Mountains.

If you had only one day to ride in Los Angeles, this would be the place to go. This section of Backbone has everything—challenging climbs, tricky switchbacks, technical creek crossings and shaded, loamy stretches that look as if they were taken right out of your favorite mountain bike magazine."

This trail is not for just anyone. It is a lot of fun, but be prepared to truly test your stamina. The single track action is top notch, but some of the climbs really help show what you're made of.

I did the entire trail up and back, but ran out of water half way back. Not good! Bring plenty, and pace yourself.

If you bring a friend, make sure he or she can handle the trails. If your the fire road type, stay away from this trail.

Overall, I'm so glad I did it, and will again. Just with more water:)
Cheers!
