Mendenhall Ridge Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"This 28-mile lollipop-shaped combination ride allows cyclists to easily access the backcountry of the Angeles National Forest's Tujunga District. Barely exceeding 5,000 in elevation, this route makes a good choice for those late fall, winter, and early spring days when you other favorite long San Gabriel rides are covered in snow. But since few others go back here, don't ride alone, and be self-sufficient. A paradox of a ride: easy to climb but difficult to descend, this is also one of the San Gabriels' most accessible yet least utilized trails -- a wise fall or winter selection for intermediates to experts. Scenery includes grand views of the San Gabriels high-country, plus a shady, oak- and sycamore-lined canyon."

"High atop the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, this secluded dirt road traverses the southern ridge above Pacoima Canyon. Along the way, you pass through oak and Douglas fir groves before arriving at Highline Saddle"
