North Kenter Fire Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"An ideal ride for Los Angelenos who don't have much time to have a lot of fun. This 3.7-mile ride is easy to reach, short, and full of amusement park thrills. This year-round ride delivers expansive views right from the start, thanks to its location on a ridge high above Mandeville Canyon. The fire road is steep in spots, but it's also interspersed with little descents that relieve the climb up to a water tank. If it's clear, you can enjoy the views for a while, but remember it's your somato-sensory system that gets the most out of this ride, not your eyes. That's because on the way back down, you'll turn off the fire road to engage the famous Kenter whoop-de-doos."

I agree with Zack on everything. This was my first trail and was alittle difficult on the climb, but coming down was a completely worth it. I want the balls to do the jumps!!!! Man this was fun. Thanks for telling me about the jump over the grand canyon was lessened by the rain. I was going to try it least thats what i tell myself.

The whoop-de-doos are the craziest jump. Too bad I don't got the guts to do most of them. The canyon jump is crazy. It's a jump with about a three-foot-long drop between it. The drop is about five feet deep and gets narrower as it goes down. People still do the jump. However, since the rain this winter the jumps got a little eroded.
