I rolled from my house to Mount Gleason to Big Tujunga Canyon. I was planning on taking Big Tujunga to Angeles Forest then down the crest, but the road conditions on Big Tujunga were CRAP. Tons of gravel, no lane, massive potholes, more like craters and vans barreling down the road, so i changed my route altogether and headed in the opposite direction. It just seemed super unsafe and I was totally bummed about it. I even thought I was lost at first because I've heard so many people mention this road, but never imagined anyone riding in those conditions.
1. Have you biked up Big Tujunga? If so, does the road improve? If it improves, how many miles after Mt. Gleason does it improve?
2. Do you have another alternative? What is Little Tujunga like?
3. What is the deal with camp 15 road/ Truck Trail that Hines leads to? Is it dirt or pavement?
