    Hey neighbors. I have recently started getting back into mountain biking, but the guys I used to go with aren't interested anymore. My cousin just got a bike, but he can't really ride yet, so even the simplest trails are difficult for him. I am looking for some trails within an hour from LA, that are fairly easy, but still fun. I know of fullerton loop, the topanga and santa monica trails, but that's about it. Where do you guys go? I hear there's a place called Trowsley near Valencia, is it good? How do I get there? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks guys. i have always figured there would be many trails up in Angeles Crest, but i wouldn't know where to start/end. As far as the OC, I know there are tons of awesome rides down there, it's just a bit far and a nightmare in traffic.

    Tapia canyon in Castaic and Towsley Canyon is fun but watch out for hikers.

    brown mtn fire road or el preido trail starting in Altadena right above the main JPL parking lot. can also connect to Millard Canyon that can connect you to most of the major hiking/biking trails in the Angeles Crest.

    there is also Chantry Flats. a few trails and a nice 5-6 mile single track loop, or you can easily end up at the top of Mt Wilson via 2 different singletrack trails.


    those are just two popular trailheads that came to the top of my head. but the best thing to do is visit a local bike shop for some maps and advice for recommend trails for your overall experience, fitness levels and abilities . there are also a few good books with great detailed info on each popular trail.
