    This is an easy fire road that most folks use for their return trip after riding North or South Ridge trails. It also attracts scores of hikers who'll glare at you and mutter "Too many mountain bikers!" as you pass, them so be on your best behavior! The Chino Hills State Park does not allow after dark riding so an early start is best so that you can select your own pace. The morning is especially nice when you spot the tarantulas slowly crawling along the trail! Out at Four Corners you can park your bike in the rack, look cool at the picnic table in your riding togs and then decide if you will try Raptor Ridge, more of Telegraph Road, South Ridge, or opt for the easy ride and retrace your inbound route. This is a good training ride for beginners and quite enjoyable.
