Still a great ride. The climb is a great workout and the descent a lot of fun. There are two drop sections which have always been rutted and loose hard pack and still are, and the drop into canyon after passing the barbed wire fence is SUPER rutted with lots of baseball sized rocks in it. Haven't ridden it since they bulldozed a firebreak through it years ago. It's just as fun and challenging as it used to be. My odometer clocked it as an 8 1/2 mile loop from the Park and Ride at the end of San Fernando and took me about an hour and half to ride. Bring lots of water and wear sunscreen in the summer because there is no shade.
