    A Packed Claremont Hills Trail (Boo-hoo)

    Wow, it is stuffed with walkers. Not that I don't like walkers and I have no problems with them but man, they are all over the trail now. 2 full parking lots, cars up and down the street (Mills) and now onto Baldy Rd.

    Lot was not full when I took the pics (11:30) but the vid shows lots mroe people.

    You should have seen it Saturday, you would have thought they were giving away something free.

    I don't get trail etiquette.

    I understand that horses get the right of way, seeing that the rider is on an uncontrollable (if the horse wants to jump off that cliff, you're going with it) animal.

    In my opinion it should then be bicyclists who are next in the pecking order. We are on bikes that are almost completely controllable, but try stopping for hikers while coming around a corner, going downhill.

    Then should be hikers, walkers, jogger etc. they are COMPLETELY in control of themselves and therefore can easily get to safety, stop on a dime or step aside if a horse or bike comes down the trail.

    Just a thought. I never got it and maybe I never will.

    That's a great idea! There's plenty of Californians that are afraid of coyotes, even.

    I think a CX or touring bike would be better for that trail.

    One guy did a forum MTB ride a few years back on a cross bike (Cino Hills, darn, can't remember his handle). He did very well but as far as my dirt skills, I'm lucky to stay upright on an MTB.

    i've done that 'trail' on a cross bike, with the right tire pressure it's pretty tame. even some of the single track is manageable at the right speed. of course, the worst spill i've ever taken was also on that trail on my mountain bike over a rutted out section, so go figure.
