Blackstar Canyon is one of the more northern mountain biking venues in the Santa Ana mountain range. The fire road ascent to Beek's Place is very pleasant with constant views & variations of grade.

Nice one with J&S. Slow roll up, screaming fast descent. Good times! Great Ride!

First time to the gate in a while. Never seen the trail so smooth. Just took my time enjoying the peace and quiet and great views.

How is it that the "slow ride" turns out to be 10 min faster than our usual time? Throw in 2 SingleSpeeds and that's what you get! Totally cool ride, weather-wise, and cool factor wise too. Great Ride!

Took a chance on a relatively rare, for me, AM ride. Oh yeah, it was plenty crowded all right. After the Falls TH it thinned out nicely and was a very pleasant climb. Thought about going longer and probably should have, but did not. An uneventful descent until I got flagged down by a hiker at the Falls TH. A hiker had fallen and sprained or broke his foot and was limping out in pretty evident discomfort. I lent him my bike and started walking. Not sure if it was the smartest thing to do, but seemed appropriate at the time. Got quite a few strange looks as I was clearly dressed for riding, hiking in my helmet, gloves and shoes, etc. Thanks to mtbfan for rolling my bike back to me, saved me some asphalt walking. It's the code of the trail and it extends to hikers. Great Ride!
