Blue Ridge Truck Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This 18.6-mile combination ride is in the shape of a lowercase "d," which can only stand for "delightful." Partly circumnavigating the Mountain High Ski Area near Wrightwood, this exquisitely pine- and vanilla-scented route is fun in late spring and summer, and jaw-dropping stunning in the fall. From its start next to the appropriately named Inspiration Point on Angeles Crest Highway (CA 2), the ride ascends an old paved road through a high alpine meadow that burned in a big 1997 fire. The pavement ends as you pass through Blue Ridge Campground and leave the ski area and civilization behind. The smooth road and panoramic ridge views of the high Mojave Desert to the north and alpine forests to the south more than make up for any man-made distractions. Combining a fine high-altitude training ride and one of the area's most captivating singletracks, this trip is a must for all riders looking to increase their endurance while having fun at the same time. Scenery includes the highest mountains in the San Gabriels, including Mt. Baden Powell and Mt. San Antonio, the desert floor of the Antelope Valley, and a gorgeous oak and sycamore forest."
