Browns Creek Road begins as a very mellow 2wd dirt road that eventually transitions into a 4x4 road when it passes the trailhead for the Browns Creek trail.

Rider questions

Q: Hey Greg, I was wondering what you think of the Backbone Trail Tapanga. I have always wanted to ride there with my son and was thinking of doing so over the Christmas break. Is it possible to ride the full length(obviously not in one day for us) but thinking of staying in hotel and then restarting each day. Or can you think of another maybe two day ride for father/son between Topanga and Orange County? Your quick thoughts would be great. David Brandt
A: Hey David, I've only done one ride on that trail, and I found it to be very overgrown just a couple of miles in. That could be different now, but tackling that trail would be quite a feat!! Let me know how it goes if you attempt it. Cheers! -Greg

Q: Thank you in advance Greg.
