    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.
