Mountain Biking Nature Center

This trail is kinda a butt kicker. You start the climb steep right out of the parking lot and continues for 4 miles. Then you stop at the bathroom witch looks like a wood outhouse. The trail will be on the left. Its pretty shaded with oak canopys and there is at least a 40 foot drop off to the side on some parts. Once you get down most of the way you will hit a split in the trail at a camp spot. You go left and keep going till youre at the nature center buildings then find pavement road and turn left. You cant miss it. Just a word of caution. Be NICE to the hikers. Bikers are bairly allowed on trail.

Getting there
This trail is really easy to find. Exit the 14 freeway to newhall ave and park at the lot at the end off the road wich is right next to the offramp. Sometimes parking is tough cause its a rideshare lot. There is a paid parking spot through the gates at the end of parking lot. This trail also makes a loop. Once you get to the you make a left on placerita canyon road then continue to the light. Its like mile and a half ride. Once at the light make a left. Continue all the way back down to newhall ave then make another left to the parking lot entrance.
