the trail in el moro, that is.

my friend gerry and i started late from ridge park this afternoon and decided to check it out. i think a lot of people may not know that it's open, since the park had a "limited" reopening of mostly perimeter trails.

but redtail ridge/rattlesnake is indeed open and in great shape. it's a little more "raw" after the rains, and there's a treat after you're done- the normal boring fireroad descent--and climb to mach 1--is essentially s/t now (until the next plowing). we finished the little loop by dropping ticketron, which had held up really well to the rains (thanks, SHARE).

the hills were green, wildflowers were starting to pop, and the views to catalina were crisp and clear. good times...

sorry- yep, it's in el moro.

there are some beginner friendly trails out there; starting from ridge park dr. and riding bommer fireroad is a good place to start. it more or less follows the highest ridge through laguna coast. you can just take it out for a few miles, then hit missing link/fenceline s/t in el moro on the way back.

pretty much all the trails out there, except for T&A and Rattlesnake, are newb-friendly, you just have to be ready for the fireroad climbs back up.

pm me if you ever want a tour.
