Status Change - Monday 2-4-2013
Since the closure of CC trail at Alondra, it was still possible to enter (going North) at Freeway Dr.
Of course, you can exit there too through the Drive-In parking lot.
The entrance/exit gate is now gone and the trail is off-limits from Alondra!
Coming south from Rosecrans
On Tuesday 2-5 I entered CC trail from Rosecrans while going south. No signs were
posted to warn that there is no exit anymore at the Drive-In. If you get caught in this
predicament, the best decision is to return to Rosecrans and find your way to Bloomfield or
Valley View, with Bloomfield the best choice.
It may seem that descending the CC wall into the channel is a good alternative. I've seen
riders doing this. The channel conditions are unpredictable. You can expect glass, fine silt, and slimy moss, with pot holes where you least expect them.
Don't risk riding in the channel bottom, instead return to Rosecrans. The southbound entrance to CC at Rosecrans should have a signed warning, but there is none.
