    There is a fee here. Flat (ha) terrain through scrub. I should have known when the cactus went through my sneaker, it also can puncture tires. Yes I got 2 flat tires. Beware.

    San Gabriel river trail goes through and around the top of Santa fe dam. My partner and I ride 30 miles here every Sunday. Mostly paved but lots of dirt in and around the dam. In my opinion good riding

    Not much climbing at this place. The fun singletracks are on the far north of this place. It has sandy sections hidden in the brush, rocky sections scattered with cactus. The rest are double track and fireroads. No downhill speeds but you still get quite a fun workout pedaling as fast as you can. You will definitely run into snakes in the summer.
