Any one ride up Temescal Canyon to the Hub from Sunset? Seems doable aside from "no bikes" on the lower part. I am going to hike it this Saturday, will report back on condition.

Unless you are very familiar with the area, don't bother posting - I asked a question, why do people choose to respond without an answer?

Not to long ago the trail permitted bikes, the issue with the lower part was too many hikers and way too many marauding downhillers - that is why bikes are not permitted right now. I encounter daily many out of control downhillers on bike trails not sticking to a line - that is what is bad for the sport, but most riders think that is 'OK."

You're a tool.

Stay off Temescal before you cost us more trail access in the SM mountains.

Do you think hikers notice if someone on a bike is "sticking to a line"? No, all the hiker wants to do is make sure they don't get run over. They won't even notice the biker's line.

Thanks for your mature response - I am certain you have almost clipped me coming downhill - you are such a nice example of the problem riders I encounter. :thumbsup:

You are the one talking about riding on a trail clearly marked that it is closed to bikes.

Any time I come across a hiker I always hold my line by stopping and getting off my bike. Never had a problem in 20+ Mt. Wilson runs.

All options from Temescal Canyon have been closed to bikes for quite a while now. You might try riding up the El Medio or Bienvenida entrances to the ridge. I can't remember if those options are signed no bikes as well.

Hopefully, with the new trail management plan, we will have at least one option open to bikes in Temescal.

Move to Orange County and leave the Santa Monicas alone for the club.
