the trail you speak of has some sort of mystical power that makes everyone think it's some illegal trail. While not necessarily legal, it's not illegal either. See the reason people believe this is because the rangers in Aliso Park tell everyone that it;s not a legal trail, because Telonix isn't part of the Aliso Woods Park, so they have no choice to tell people not to ride it since taking any other stand would make them liable if any injuries should occur. So this is why the BS about Telonix.

The Telonix trail is on city land which is regulated by the city, not the park rangers. So keep riding all you want, but keep in mind that Telonix is being ridden on borrowed time. The first time some 15 yr old breaks his neck and his mom tries to sue, this trail will be gonners.

Oh & BTW, for all the whiners that say stop posting about Telonix. Please refrain with such comments. If anyone cared to shut down Telonix they would have done it years ago. This trial is older than most people who post on this board and it;s not some deep dark secret. The city knows it;s there and like I said, until something dramatic happens, no one cares.

Be careful about giving incorrect information.

April 23, 2008.......... parcels which include this trail were purchased to be added to the protected open space areas and protected similar to the rest of the South Coast Wilderness areas; and eventually will be managed as one of the parks....not sure which one.

Look it up on the internet......it's all there.

As I've said many times before.......get involved in making changes through the proper channels and things can get accomplished.

Just be careful not to steer people in the wrong direction with miss-information.

Thanks!

Actually that is not correct either. Because...

As of June 13, 2008.....parcels which include this trail that where previously purchased to be added to the protected open space areas have been sold by said unknown park dept, to an undisclosed private company for purposes yet to be revealed. Look it up it's on the internet...everywhere. ;)

Telonics is gnarly. Everyone crashes at least a few times before getting it dialed and even then it's still a challenge. In terms of tips, lower the seat, bend those knees and elbows and pick your line way in advance. Other rides that are in the area "Rockit, Stairstep, TNA and 5 Oaks" Rockit is the easiest and really fun. Remember to smile and have fun and good luck with the trail research. (Video is of Telonics with some local mashers...not me)
