Some tough climbs. Long fireroad climb. Great scenery. Starting at about 5000 feet and climbing to about 6200 where you can stop at "lunch rock" and take in the view. Rocky, rough technical singletrack downhill follows.

Rider questions

Q: Has anyone ridden from the top of silver moccasin(13 miles) to the Gabrieleno trail over to the lower campground of Switzer(9 miles)
A: yes, a few months back. the gabrieleno trail had some trees down, but I hear they have cleaned it up. It is a great ride. Super fun trail with lots of drops and rocky technical areas. You do have to climb a 1/4 mile of steep paved road to get back up to switzer at the end of the trail.

    Very enjoyable. At the time of riding the trail was in excellent condition other than a few fallen trees. This course has a bit of everything. The climb is very reasonable. There are one or two very short hike-a-bike sections. Be aware of the bushy trees that sometimes partially obstruct the trail as they cause painful scratches.

  • As of March 11, 2017. Lots of large downed trees south of silver moccasin trail. Very time consuming in which daylight (riding lights), water, and nutrition may become an issue. Used the SCOA shuttle service dropping off at Hillyer.

    Pretty fun trail but you definitely need to get used to the different grip levels the terrain offers, some sections remind you of trying to ride on the beach while others provide decent grip. Overall fun trail
