Review: I have taken the shuttle and done this trail a few times. It almost always ends up with me hurting myself. The ground is loose, and the drops are pretty mean. Many people fly through this trail. I tried and fell down a 30ft slope on the Sunset trail section towards the bottom. It takes a lot of concentration, but if you are up for the challenge then this is one of the best rides in SoCal. Its def one for the big boys and girls! I like to connect with El Prieto at the bottom as a nice bit of icing on the cake, that is when I have not broken my bike getting there. Watch out for all the poison oaks as well. Oh... and bring some knee and elbow pads with you!

Similar Trail: The closest this to skydiving I have come too.

Review: Today, 1/17/09 was my first ever downhill ride. This trail was awsome. I cant wait to go back. Took 6am shuttle to the top for $10.00. Money well spent. I road my Jamis Dakar down it and it is set up for XC and I had no serious problems.

Similar Trail: Marshall canyon near the 210 Fwy and the 57 Fwy. The trail is not so much for downhill bikes but still has technical stuff.

Review: It starts off steep with a lot of rocks sticking up out of the ground. Then, you get to a camp ground where you have to watch out for people that are hiking about. At some point right after the camp site, you have to pick up your bike and hop over some rocks and rivers that are a bit too big to ride over. Then you reach a fork in the road, where you take a right and go up a little hill. At the peak of the hill, there is another fork in the road, where you take a left to hike and a right to Mt. Bike. At this point, it gets really nice! A bunch of cliff side downhill (drops ranging from 5-20 ft up). Not may rocks in the way at this point, and quite a bit of shade every 40 yards or so. Then you hit (what I think to be) a dried up river. Nothing but rocks for 150-200 yards. You hit a bit of up hill, another OLD campsite, downhill it from there. There's a few little drop things, followed by crossing a few bridge type structures, and then... You're at JPL! :D

Review: I highly recomend that you use the shuttle option on this trail. It allows you to complete the trail more than once in a day, without tireing
