    Steady climb from ranger station to antennas. M-TRAIL is a fast somewhat technical singlestrack that takes you to the parking area at the base of the mountain. This trail is not for beginners. SKYLINE is located just before the gate on box Springs road, look for sign, travel counterclock wise. Fun downhill followed by uphill challenges which will get your heart pumping. TWO TREES trail is steep with some sections only ridable by an experienced rider. A great trail for the downhill junkie. Can be very very hot in during summer months. Bring plenty of H2o. Our rides here are usually 20+ miles and can last 3-4 hrs. Come join us! teamdirtywork.com

    first time on the trail...the fire road up to the towers is gradual, with a couple of good, short, grunts...I pushed a couple times, my partner did not. The views at the top were spectacular, we started down in a hurry because it was windy this day. Single track down has ruts and wash-out from rains, but is very ridable....including some drop-off cut-backs that are very challenging...stay on designated trail...hikers have short-cuts all over...some fast sandy shoots across a couple saddles were fun and FAST!!! The pavement ride back to the rig was bearable...bring a shuttle...and the ride is much shorter, with more downhill than up...

    I enjoyed the climb up to the top from the park, but there were graders at work that make the normally hard packed road really soft. The switchbacks are deceptively simple--I had some trouble with them and the fast descents, but it was a really fun ride. There is no tree cover, so watch the sun. This trail would have taken us longer if we had climbed all the way from two trees. As it was, we spent about 1.5 hours riding, we were just taking it easy. I would have rated this higher, if I wasn't really tired and cranky when I tried it.

    Box is a three star trail if you climb up the entrance on Two Trees road, and descend from the radio towers on the singletrack sections back to Two Trees. It could be a five star ride if you do the singletrack loop from the bottom of Two Trees east towards Moreno Valley, up the Pigeon Pass fire road to the towers, down the singletrack back to the bottom of Two Trees, then cross over for a lap at Sycamore Cyn. park, just on the other side of the 60/215 fwy. It's almost all singletrack, and depending on which way yoy go, can be on the technical side. Bring lots of water for the big loop, as it gets hot in the summer. Start at 5a.m. for beautiful sunrise views in the fall.

    By far the best mountain biking in the Inland Empire area, especially in the winter. A good mix of fire road, singletrack, gut wrenching climbs and fear inducing descents.
