    Very fun park-like ride with some very technical options. Lots of rocky descents as well as semi-technical/steep climbs. This area is probably most enjoyable with a FS bike, but I had no issues riding it on a HT. Would not recommend to beginners as steep climbs and rock gardens are almost unavoidable here.

    Reviewing Weir Canyon Loop:
    ****

    This is short, but fast and flowy loop that can be completed in less than 30 minutes for the intermediate riders. You are either on a fast descent or climbing here - very little flat sections. This loop is usually an "extra credit" for people riding Santiago Oaks, but could be a good fun training ride if you are pushing yourself. It has some quick descents with some rocky sections and one or two very short technical inclines.

    Pretty easy climb up if u take oak trail to the top. Then u have so many choices to get back down. Hawk trail is the most challenging. Very rocky and lots of drops. Chutes is another fun trail if u like rocky challenges. Not too hard at all.

    My favorite local spot, I usually hit it once a week. Lots of variety, steep technical descents, berms, rock gardens, very fast fire roads. Conditions are usually a little torn up and there are always lots of horseback riders and hikers wearing earbuds so you have to stay sharp. Some fun 3-5 foots drops at the very top by the towers at the top. Chutes & Hawk are my favorites and Cactus Canyon seems easy but if you let your speed build its a pretty wild ride.

    Fun trail I ride it at least once a week. This is my sons favorite trail so I ride it with him and his friends. Chutes is fun. In the summer I recommend riding in the morning or late evening theres no real shade.

    Oaks is a nice ride - up the three B's and down the back side to the numerous trails virtually all single track. I don't think that even the toughest trail warrants a black diamond though. Ride it to say you've done The Oaks.

    Oaks, as we call it, is a super fun place to ride. With so many different trails you can ride here all the time and not be bored. Lots of single track, some fire roads, but kicking ascents, and fun and steep descents. All around a good time if you know how to ride.

    Lots of variety and one can change their route based on what they are looking for...
    Good variety for everybody. It goes without saying but go early if its hot out.
    I usually ride up from the elementary school that comes after Anaheim hills golf course.

    If you are taking my favorite route than you are starting with a climb up Chutes which is very difficult. You then descend Waterfall which is somewhat steep with a pretty chunky rock garden. Back down you will then begin the climb up the three b's. This is not a very difficult climb but more of a slow grind, however. Hammer heads may find the three b's to be challenging at a fast pace. Once at the top, spend some time hitting the jumps and drops at the playground area. Finish the ride with a fast flowing descent down Zips and Chutes. This park has trails that will challenge both newbies and intermediate riders.
