Route Directions 


Excellent views! Very steep, along the lines of Los Pinos. More challenging than Joplin Trail and much longer. Click on the elevation chart to get a better view. This route climbs up Trabuco Trail then onto the top portion of Los Pinos, then soon onto Bell Ridge Trail. You'll come back to civilization at the top of Robinson Ranch as you hit a few residential streets. Then just a few miles of downhill pavement back to the Trabuco Creek lot.

Warriors Society trailwork event; thanks to all that came out to keep this backcountry gem open! First top-to-bottom brushing of Bell since 2009. Tough day riding and cutting the overgrowth with all the hand tools I could carry.

Solo. Trailwork assessment mission. Always a "great ride".

Good ride with Troy, Vino & Frank. Cold and cloudy up at Pinos Peak but once we started dropping elevation we got below the clouds again. Glad we got done before the rain hit.

Solo. Beautiful morning with lots of sun before the rain. Lots of ruttage and chunk on Bell making it much more fun. BGR was much edgier than usual making for a total blaster of a drop. Bell is getting super overgrown...gonna be a heck of a trailwork day.

Saturday Crew ride with Troy, Ben & Greg. Stayed up late last night the younger crowd and paid the price this morning. I was dragging real bad all the way to the W. Horsethief-Trabuco turnout. Started feeling better for the climb up Trabuco. Seat dropper stopped working as we approached Pinos Peak and that made the ups and downs on Bell a lot more difficult. Nice day out there. Some frost on the ground as we climbed Trabuco. Could see the smoke plume from the recycling plant fire in Santa Ana when we were at Pinos Peak. Good seeing Carl & Larissa out there. Took a nice nap when I got home!
