    Nothing beats seeing a trail in SoCal I haven't ridden...except for a trail here that I've never
    even heard of.

    Thanks, Greg

    truth be told, you didn't miss much. it was a long 30 mile ride that consisted almost entirely of
    old jeep trails that were more or less wide single track, very wide, maintained dirt road or
    paved road.

    after the initial, quite steep and fun 1 1/2 mile descent we had to grind our way up about 8 or so
    miles. after finally reaching the top, we were rewarded by a very stellar (detect sarcasm) paved
    descent of about 4 miles. That gave way to maintained dirt road before finally a little high speed,
    sort of bumpy stuff.

    Here's the elevation chart.

    disregard the 8900 feet of climbing, not sure where that number came from. But there was about 5000
    feet of it. The worst part was that the opening descent that was so fun and steep was our finishing
    ascent which was just plain awful. Hike-a-bike most of the way.

    But, good company, good weather, and good views at least made the ride fun. I don't think I'll rush
    to go back but it was fun to do once.
