Whiting Ranch offers a network of gated fire roads and singletrack that connects to greenways and other trails that branch out into the surrounding communities, allowing many local riders to access these challenging hills from the convenience of their own homes.

If you're parking at the trailhead (at the least the one listed here), expect to pay a $3.00 parking fee, but be sure to pick up one of the complimentary maps to help you navigate the trails.

Due to the networked format, you can easily create as short or as long of a ride as you desire.

But in general, there are a variety of different trails here ranging from wide, gated fire roads to bike-optimized singletrack. As with many other rides in So Cal, spend some time climbing up to the top of the hills on the fire roads, and then turn around and bomb down the chunky singletrack! Many of the singletrack trails in Whiting feature perfectly-bermed turns to hold you into the trail, allowing you to really shred the descents! While flowy, the trails are also pretty chunky in spots and will be sure to put your suspension to work.
