Aliso Woods MTB ride

Thinking of doing the full tour up there either the 2nd or 3rd saturday of next month. Anyone interested?

Ride will be about 19 miles and 2600 feet of downhill. Ride woods to chuola to top fire road, down rock it, back up chuola to top of the world then down mathese to parking lot.

Parking is 3 bucks I think.


Saturday Aug 16 @ 8am.

I'd recommend one change,
coyote
up cholla
down rock-it
up cholla ( yes again)
to top o' the world
Meadows down ( meadows is a fun down with switchbacks.) ( this is the change)
I think your right, it will be about 15+ miles with around 2500' of elev gain.

Le me know and I'll join you.

Today I did a ride similar to this.
Except after going down Rock-It went up Mathis. ( instead of Cholla 2x)

Great ride, had a blast and my arms were burnin'......
It wil be good to see everyone again!

Just moved to the area a couple months ago...mind if I join you guys? Not looking for any crazy downhill stuff, but I've ridden the SART, Marshall Canyon, and Southridge (the XC course), so something similar would be great.
