From time to time, I see bikers returning to their cars at JPL from a shuttled ride. Apparently there is a scheduled time for meeting for these rides - does anyone know the time. I assume it's pretty early Sat and Sun mornings. Are there any shuttles this weekend? If my friends and I leave a car at JPL and drive to Red Box, how long would the ride back to JPL take? Thanks in advance for any info.

Last time I checked, Angeles Crest was closed to Red Box. Anybody know when it'll be open? (for my roadie rides or going to Chilao, not like i'd shuttle ever :) )

Thanks

I tried to lookup road info at Caltrans' website, but it was not clear if Angeles Crest Highway was open or not. There are affparently sections closed for construction Fri-Sat and an area closed for mudslide. But, I'm not sure exactly where the closure is. Anyone know for sure? Thanks.

Angeles Crest is open up to Mt Wilson

So you could do the Redbox JPL shuttle. I had head that from Switzer on though was thrashed. We did Vista to some little campground today and then did a short shuttle from Redbox to Switzer and it was in great condition. If anyone has done Redbox to JPL, I'd like to know what kind of shape its in.

Thanks

Angeles Crest Highway is open through the Mt. Wilson Rd., also known as Red Box. Angeles Crest is closed just past that. Backside (Sturdevant) is thrashed; please don't ride this trail. Cruz doesn't operate a shuttle service anymore. He did it just as a service, and if anybody wanted to pitch in a "tip" for him, that was completely legal, but ANF hassled him until he stopped. Now, pretty much you can just show up around dawn and get a ride up with people. Offering to pitch in some money is VERY helpful in getting somebody to take you up there.
