I used to go horseback riding here once a week. The riding business is now closed due to bad business, by the way, so the people you see on trail has their own horses and at least some type of riding experience. Do not ride fast near any of the horses unless you want them to freak out and like kill you. SLOW DOWN to the maximum speed of 5km/hr if not stop completely. If you ride fast, the horse will totally freak out and either the rider or you will get hurt. One man actually cracked his skull from falling from his rearing horse caused by a biker speeding past the horse. Bikers, as the person with the broken vertebrae, have gotten injured due to riding too fast(one person skinned the side of his whole leg trying to avoid the horse). While I was riding, my brother would ride his bike on the trails. Since the riding business closed, I hike or ride bikes on the trail. The trails there are somewhat challenging, especially going uphill. Beware also of random bumps and stones. You can easily twist an ankle running or if you decide to make a sharp turn while biking, you can also slide. Beware of falling because on a lot of the trails, to the side of it is like a cliff. The trails are very fun and refreshing. However, do not go at noon. I like going either in the morning or late afternoon when it is cooler. The trails are especially pretty during the spring.

This is not the best trail ever, but it's close to home and has some entertainment value. Ride it if you live near by and want weekday fun after work.

Park on Old Fullerton near the water company. The parking lot by stables gets locked at random times. Head back out to fullerton, make a left, a trail appears after the water comp. Ride up that first section if you got skills, walk if your lame. The trail up is pretty wide and uneventful, heading down turns into single track and is switch backs some of which are banked and can be taken full speed because of it. The are old asians everywhere so look ahead on the trail. At the bottom make a left go up to intersection and take the road to the right that goes up. Go under the gate, head right, go up to the second right, go to the electric wire tower go down hill, take it easy the first time so you know just how fast it gets before you go balls out. Watch out for old Asians. Make a right at the bottom go through the equistrian center, ignore the no bikes sign, they are on public land and privilaged to have use of it. Go straight through four points to the fork (ignore the T's) and bear left staight out to the road.

I have been riding in these hills for only about two years or so, but I try to go atleast every other day. I think I have tried every trail up there, including "ChickenRun". I really enjoy the atmosphere, but I agree with a posted review about the walkers. In the morning there are many, on the weekend they are everywhere. I recomend going at about 4-4:30 in the evening to have less trafic. I only see about 2 actual bikers a week at that time, and a max of 5-8 people at that time.

First off, park at the newly built horse corral. This is the best place to park if you bring your bike to the trail, but it is also the best starting point as I see it. The corral is located off of old Fullerton Road; go up/down fullerton and just past/before pathfinder, make your turn onto old fullerton. About one block down is the turnout into the corral. Just make a right. Once you are at the corral, go around the white gate and and stay on the road until you get to "4 corners". You will know that you are there because if you look to your left there is a climb, to your right there is a climb, and infront of you there is a downhill. The downhill is fun but veryquick, and lands you in schebarum. I would take the trail on your left which goes towards the radio tower. You will hit another white gate that you can go under, then make a right continuing up the hill. It streches aways up and curves around to the right. Once at the top where you can see the driveway to the radio tower, just continue straight and there are some mild slopes up, and then a right turn down a hill that used to be very rutted, but now is pretty flat. WARNING: There is a 90 degree right turn at the bottom of...

this hill, SLOW DOWN! After you make the right, you can take the hill up and continue around the downhill, all the way to the western corner of scebarum. Its a lot of fun. After you get to schebarum, goto where the horse stables are and you can follow that rode up. If you do not turn at the signs that say no dirtbikes or cars, you will eventually get back to four corners, and just continue straight to end your ride, or you can go up the switchbacks and end up on old fullerton, and then ride back to the horse corral. NOTICE: If you go back up towards 4 corners, right when you get to the steeper part, you can look to your right and see a single track going down a mountain. This is Chicken Run. I did it once, and dont think I will again..or atleast untill I find a way to get up there other than hiking up the face...good luck...

Head south on fire road just south of horse corral. After 1/2 mile look to left for single track branching off through the trees. A decent singletrack switchback climb, followed by a long serpentine descent to Fullerton Road. Follow Fullerton Road south. Turn right on Old Fullerton Road. Hook up w/ the trail again at lower gate off Old Fullerton Road. Dbl. track climb through Powder Canyon to the Saddle. If you're done, continue straight and you'll find yourself back at the equestrian center. If you want more, turn west and up a 1-mile dbl. track grade to the summit. Just before you reach the radio towers, a trail splits off to the right. Follow this trail up and over the ridge. The Trail merges w/ the Scumbarum Trail after a brief descent. Turn right. A nice 2-mile descent to the park entrance. Follow parking lot road back to equestrian center. Please be kind to horses as they are not rare here.

it's a short ride but a good climbing workout. The trail can be connected further west or east in the Puente Hills. Fire road and trails goes all over place. I've been riding here for years and still don't know some of those trails goes.

Customer Service

Follow Scott J's route up the switch back (single track...not really) before you reach to the top of the climb look for a single track on the right. it's a little up hill before decent to the "4 corner". Turn right to go back to the horse stable. I recommand go straight and climb all the way up the towers and decent as Scott J described. I also like to do this loop in reverse. The steep climb up is good training (I saw Tinker came up that trail once. I understand he used to ride here all the time) The reverse way also has more fun on downhilling.

This was the first time I rode this trail. My friend and I rode up to the powerline, 3 miles up, the down a nice single track back to where we started. Too bad there are no markers on the trail to identify which trail you're on. On the way up, I must have seen at least 5 single tracks that were prime rippin' trail. Is there a map of this place? I'm definetly coming back and do some exploring. Overall, w/the singletracks that I saw, this could be an easy intermediate to advance rating. Update next week...

I love this area, but probably because I grew up in the area. I've been hiking and biking these trails for 18 years, since I was a cub scout. The very first ride is the one I usually do when I'm back in the area. Two words of caution-If you ride in the morning, be very careful of the elderly asain walkers, they're everywhere and usually in groups, also close to the equestrian center be extremely cautious of horses. I once had a twenty mph encounter with one which fractured a vertebrae and severly damaged my bike. Keep in mind they do many lessons here, so many of the riders will not be experienced. As for the singletrack most of those have appeared in the last five to ten years or so, I think created by the previously mentioned morning walkers. Every time I've tried to ride them, I end up with something pointy in my tires, plus they're so short, I don't feel they're really worth the time.

Customer Service

They're all pretty good.
