I live in Hawthorne, near LAX. Can someone tell me where any dirt trails might be that are in the L.A. area? I'm a beginning rider, so the trails need to be willing to accommodate that fact. Any place within 20 miles of L.A.X. would be great.
I live in the South Bay also and the best close riding is in the Santa Monica Mtns. Check out Westridge or Sullivan Canyons off of Mandeville Canyon. Either will get you to dirt Mullholland and you can ride a lot of trails from there. Or park at Will Rogers State Park off of Sunset and hit the backbone trail, a good single track climb into the mtns. I know there is riding in Palos Verdes but I believe you have to piece a lot of short trails together and it may be harder to do without someone to show you the way.
