Q: Visiting Big Bear for the first time with Mountain Bikes soon. How do you think this trail would be for a 9-year old who is used to riding fire roads and some very easy sections of singletrack? FWIW, we usually ride in the Pasadena/La Canada area. I ride El Prieto, Cherry Canyon, etc. My son is confident on the fire roads here and does well in the easy singletrack parts of Arroyo Secco (behind JPL) if that's any indication. Looking for something in Big Bear that he can handle, but not so easy as just bike path riding. Thanks. -canyon333
A: yes, the first half mile is uphill, but then fun rolling after.
