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."

We rode the trails right out of Wrightwood, and connected a small trail we caught as we ascended toward Table Mt. on the road. Then we took the trail back to Wrightwood. They were really fun, worth about 1 hour of riding, at the most, though. It was warm and the trails dried great from the snow that had fallen just days before.
