    Looking for some good mountain bike trails in the LA county area

    Im interested in some trails in the LA county area if anyone has any information on this it would be nice.
    Either directions, or an address. Preferably beginner trails. Im located in Rosemead, off the I-10 freeway. like 15 minutes East of Downtown LA

    I know it's far from you, but the south end of Reseda Blvd. is the entrance to dirt Mulholland and lots of fire roads and some single track. It's a good place for beginners and has some nice views.
    I know there are some mtb areas closer to you, maybe someone will help.

    I was going to say Turnbull as well, that would be the closest. Also check out Powder Canyon/ Schabarum Park southeast of you off the Azusa & Fullerton exits off the 60. If by beginner you mean non-technical this would fit the bill, but it's mostly long climbs, some can get pretty steep.
    A little more of a drive is Carbon Canyon/Chino Hills park. It's south on the 57 from the 60 and there are many trails here to chose from for almost all levels. It's probably the closest drive-worthy trail system to you.

    cool, thanks for the suggestions guys.
    My first time riding a trail was at Monroe Truck Road, off the 210 freeway, that was pretty hard...it was an intermediate course, lol

    Look into Bonelli Regional Park, Chino Hills and Schabarum Regional Park, too.

    They're all pretty close to Rosemead and have some beginner trails/fireroads.
