Trail Description
About this trail
This is my favorite trail in Southern California because of the variety it offers. It is a mix of doubletrack and singletrack. Some parts of the trail has quite a bit of climbing, and some is fairly flat.

The easiest route is to take the Sulpher Springs/Cheeseboro Canyon Trail out as far as y ou want from the parking lot, and turn around when you get tired. Other trails may be short, but make sure you read the descriptions before you ride them. The Modello trail may be short, but there's a bit of climbing involved.

If you're looking for something a bit tougher, you can always take the Palo Comado Canyon trail, which has a significant amount of climbing.

Review: I rode up the Palo Comado canyon trail to China Flat and then rode down Sheep Corral all the way to the end. The climb up Palo Comado is pretty consistent but not overly difficult. China Flat was in good condition and is a fun, mostly flat little loop. Coming back down to Sheep Corral I got turned around once or twice - some of the trails are hard to follow since there isn't great signage. Sheep Corral is a super fun trail. It's pretty flowy and has some technical, rocky parts, but nothing extremely difficult. I tackled it on my hardtail and brought a first timer to the trails and he was able to handle it easily enough. Rode down Las Virgenes Canyon trail to Pump Hill and took that up to Cheeseboro ridge and then descended into Cheeseboro Canyon before heading back to the car. All in all it was about 18 miles and tons of great, ripping fun

Review: Great system of trails with a good mix of single track and fire roads. Terrain is a mix of hard pack with some loose scree and sand but mostly hard and fast. The entrance to Palo/Camado Canyon is off Doubletree Road in Oak Park. Use Google Maps to find this trail and familiarize yourself with surrounding trails. Go left in the canyon and travel uphill past the first singletrack on the right and continue uphill to the second one on the right. This takes you to a fun and fast downhill single track that leads to Chesebro Canyon

Review: This is pretty much a beginner/intermediate trail system. Mostly fireroad but there is some ST mixed in. Nothing too hard. This is a good place to take beginners to get them out in the dirt.

Review: Good trail for beginner and intermediate riders with nice mix of single track and fire roads & not a ton of climbing. There are a few technical single track sections and technical climbs which may challenge. The scenic views of the surrounding landscape are excellent. Of the two available loops, the first loop (~10 miles) will have the majority of the good action. The smaller loop on the right side is good to add miles to your ride, but is nearly all fire roads with some decent views.

Similar Trail: None in area

Review: Super fun trail! A rarity in SoCal as you do not have to do a ton of climbing to get some fun fast action. Its a bit sandy at times so take those corners carefully. Oh and one more thing, there are plenty of SNAKES!

Similar Trail: El Prieto near Glendale. Get yu climbing legs on for that one going up & you body armor on going down!
