Great SHADED mtn bike rides in the Southern Cali/LA area

Hey - I'm new to Southern Cali, and the weather rocks! Mtn biking 4 seasons of the year!!

As much as I love climbing the mountains in the Santa Monicas, the sun and the lack of cover make for an occasionally tough riding experience. Plus, I like greenery! If anyone knows of any good rides in the LA area or nearby 2-3hrs, let's hear the details - how to get there, any permits needed, and how long the ride is!

Ride on!

+1 for the Pasadena mountains, or the entire foothills of the San Gabriel Valley for that matter.

A good trail I usually do since it's close by to where I live is the one right by JPL -

Take the 210 to the Arroyo / Windsor exit
Make a right off the exit
Proceed about 1 mile, parking area to your left
Trail begins directly in front of the road - you won't miss it

Around 1.1 miles of flats before you get climbing - you can go all the way around, or turn around at various points.

Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear for some great single track in the woods.
