If the wear on the trail is any indication, the Luge has been a very popular trail for a very long time!
Begin by heading up the old fire road that, as a result of the encroaching plant life, has turned into a rocky singletrack climb along the ridge. Buckly down and get ready to grind, as there's about 3-4 miles of climbing in front of you.
The turn off to the luge trail is marked by the American Flag sitting high on the knob. Hang a right and prepare to descend!
The main Luge Trail is a bomber descent that is true to it's namesake: big berms and a trench-like disposition hold you into the trail, letting you open it up and let it rip down the mountain! The trail is currently pretty rough in places, with some rocks and tons of braking bumps going into the corners, but still, the best word to describe it is flowy! Many of the trails that I've ridden so far in So Cal have been anything but flowy, but the Luge let's you flow like water down the mountain.
When you reach the pavement, hang a right and head down to Cook's Corner. This is the low spot of the route, so it wouldn't be a bad place to park the car. (Google map location given is for the beginning of the dirt). Hang a right at Cook's Corner to climb back up the highway to your car!
