DONALD JACKSON08/27/13Spin after work. Beautiful sunset. 
DONALD JACKSON07/06/13Friday around noon saw a bobcat with a collar 
Ben Boronow07/01/13Sunday afternoon ride with Ron. Not quite as hot as I expected. My GPS stopped recording coming down rock-it, so I didn't record the bottom and Coyote. He got a flat right at the end of the dirt. Still a good ride. 
DONALD JACKSON06/27/13breezer spin, saw Greg out for a spin also. 
DONALD JACKSON06/16/13saw Charlie , 
DONALD JACKSON06/11/13after work spin 
grimix06/06/13Thanks for inspiration to leave the house for a quicky LobSas. Only 15 minutes away and I had fun. And Jake, SART is on my bucket list. Big time. Need to see a scheduled ride pop up there one day and have planets aligned. 
DONALD JACKSON05/30/13late start Saw the Sat crew (Tom) 
DONALD JACKSON05/21/13Monday eve spin 
DONALD JACKSON05/19/13couple gopher snakes today. no one on rick it 
DONALD JACKSON04/14/13worked on my bike again. setting it up a little better , Followed some guys down rocket today/ Cool 
AaronK12/16/12Great ride today, avoided the mud and rain. I made it up Cholla with my feet on pedals and my suspension worked well coming down Rock It. 
Enriquez10/27/12Perfect weather. Saw a group doing a Halloween type ride with costumes and stuff. 3 riders climbing Rock-It as I was getting ready to drop down, 3!! Amazing!! Took the p-line down the rock garden as the courage has not built up yet, still managed to grab a branch and fall, Haa Haa! Oh and the ranger had a couple of bikers stopped on a no-bikers trail, think I saw a ticket book in his hand! GREAT RIDE!! 
DONALD JACKSON07/15/12rode compulsion. deer were crossing by the 2nd creek crossing 
tdroesch06/13/12Cholla killed me, sad to say. But Rock-it was fast and fun. This time includes 6 miles round trip from home to parking lot. 
TOMCA05/07/12Great Monday morning ride. Saw two deers. Actually I took coyote on the way back. 
Amyh04/28/12Today's ride got me out of my comfort zone. But very fun, I think... Up 5 oaks, down 5 oaks, up rocket, down lynx,up cholla, down rocket. 
la_purisima04/17/12I returned to MTB riding about 15 months ago. This was my first ride. Took over 2 hours, with a bunch of walking on Cholla and an OTB on Rockit. I was wheezing and bruised up, but had a great time. I probably logged 150+ rides last year and am on a good pace this year. I've cut some time and gained some skills, but I'm still improving and enjoying riding more than ever. What a great sport. 
Enriquez04/16/12Rode with Bryan. We started at 6pm and figured we have enough time even for us slow climbers. Wrong, mechanicals really did a number on our goal. Thanks to the gent that stopped at the bottom of Cholla to help with the adjustment with the shifting issues. 
GoneRiding04/03/12Haven't been in Aliso in a long time even though it is the closest park to me. Started at 6:35 tonight which didn't leave enough time to do a bigger ride. Saw Richie Rich finishing up as I entered the park and ran into Goldrunner's cousin Cameron on Rock-It. Haven't seen him in a couple of years. Stopping to talk to him meant it was pretty dark by the time I got back to the car. Noticed a broken spoke going down Rock-It.

Enriquez03/07/12Great Ride. Now im back at the church parking lot loading my bike when a remote control plane flies overhead and a piece falls off, i retrieve it and its the cockpit. So like a good karma seeking mtn biker i drive around to the park and i give the guy the missing piece. He was ecstatic! He says "i didnt know what it was but i knew it wasnt a wing cause the plane kept flying" The kids were laughing at dad, Too funny. 
nharper03/06/12Sweet lunch time ride! 
Enriquez03/02/12Had a deer hopping in front of me for a about 40 yds on Rock-It before he darted off into the brush. Almost went head-on with a coyote on Coyote Trail on a bend. Interesting and Great Ride!! 
grimix02/29/125¢ at Bevmo™ is always good excuse for a quick hit at Aliso. Expected mud but dirt was best I've seen it. 
Enriquez02/24/12Late start meant I got to see the coastal fog creep over the top ridge as I was riding the lower fire road...kinda cool. Great Ride!! 
Enriquez02/20/12Added Dripping Cave and cleaned it again. Forgot Camelback again, but I am starting to like this feeling of riding a lil lighter. Now I know why I see so many riders with just a water bottle in the cage. Great Ride!! 
Enriquez02/12/12Good thing I was dressed warmly, felt good throughout the ride. Zooming down Rock-It until the I come across a family of 5 hiking, which luckily was after the rock garden. My Bear Bell warned them that I was coming. Tired but a Great Ride!! 
Enriquez02/03/12Fun ride with my co-worker Barbara along with Jeff and Billy. Said Hi to a few of the Pinoy Riders before the Cholla climb. Fun Times!! 
Enriquez02/01/12Day 2, Added Dripping Cave. This time I was able to clean the twisty curvy climbs. Thanks Tblazen for the inspiration. On that note, starting DC from the fireroad, that initial climb will be a heck of a challenge for me. Met my first GEO rider at the parking lot, GMann! Great Ride!! 
Congo Kid01/28/12Nice solo loop. Got a bit hot on this loop. Shot some video down Rock-it. Really stuck it on the downhill and felt good - great trail conditions after the rain. 
Enriquez01/26/12Rare midweek day off for me so what else to do but go for a ride! Still no granny gear to make the climbs easier. Good Ride! 
Enriquez01/19/12Went with XTR instead of SRAM on the chain and it was slipping. No Granny gear. I was surprised how well I did on Cholla despite not having granny. Picked up a new rear tire, Maxxis MOFO, gripped very well but its a beast of a tire. Very fast run down Rock-It. Great Ride!! 
Enriquez01/16/12Late start. 4:15pm Face felt numb for the first 15 mins. Saw a coyote on wood cyn trail. Rock-It was nice and tacky. Ended at about 5:15 in the dusk. Great Ride! 
Enriquez01/13/12I like it when I time it just right, plus the new KS helps get rid of the pit stops to lower and raise the saddle. Thank You inventor of the KS. Great Ride! 
Enriquez01/10/12Get home, wife tells me that date night has been cancelled. Quick kiss goodbye and off I go. Today I was determined to descend Rock-it soooo, I was pushing up the fireroad. Only stopped at the top to put the sunglasses in the pack and away I went. Good time on the loop, 58 mins, the new KindShock seatpost really saves minutes. Talked with a dude who had to unexpectadly climb Rock-It to look for his glasses, he found them. Great Ride! 
DONALD JACKSON12/30/11Just before dark, Then hooters to see Overreem win 
Enriquez12/28/11Enjoying the short but brutal climb up Cholla and here comes a downhiller...guess who had to yield...yup me! All forgiven cause the first words out of his mouth were Sorry! Plus he had cactus on both sides so he would have been in a sticky situation! Great Ride! 
Enriquez12/03/11The plan was to meet my buddy under the 73 and the bike path around 7am and pedal into Aliso. It was 42 degrees! so we headed back to his place. WIMPS I know! Headed out again after 8am and it was about 60, much better. Met ThePainisLoveisPainLove, awesome videos on Youtube! Great Ride! 
JCampbell11/27/11Quick Ride. 
nuts4mtbikes10/24/11Kim needed "new" dirt so we moved our standard Monday ride from Fully Loop to Aliso tonight!! We included Dripping Cave on the way out. Kim really loved Rock-it!! It's been a while since she's been down it! Good job Kim! 
spicolli197610/15/11this was pretty close to the second half of our ride today. 
Enriquez10/02/11Saw what I hate to see on trails today! Helmetless rider going down Rock-It. He was excited about his new bike so I said "it would suck to not be able to ride it, if u crash... Met Ben and some other fellow on Coyote, rode back to the ranger station...nice guys...GREAT RIDE! 
Enriquez09/29/11Ran out of fuel going up Cholla...that hasnt happened in a long while...oh well next time! 
millertw09/22/11Probably my favorite trail so far in SoCal. 
millertw09/22/11 
SuperDutyDave09/17/11Added Dripping Cave up and back. Beautiful weather and I passed a guy going down the Rock Garden on Rock it! Rode awesome today 
MaR09/13/11Went down the rock garden for the first time. 
Enriquez09/09/11Thur nite ride. Sit at home with no power or go for a ride...no brainer. Stopping at El Pollo Loco after my ride was my only dab...20 mins for a chicken burrito...guess the rest of Laguna Hills was hungry too :) 
Gears of Joy09/09/11Climbed up Rock-it earlier today and couldnt stop thinking about flying down it, so I had to revisit Aliso Canyon for some downhill thrills. Saw a HUGE rattlesnake just off the fire road near the top of Cholla. 
Enriquez09/06/11Finally made it up to Big Bear on Monday. Thunderstorms made it a muddy mess so no big deal I thought, I can ride today. Get to the lifts, Closed. Sat and Sun only for the sky chair. It was a long sad drive home...thank goodness for Aliso! 
Enriquez08/22/11Late start, so I was on a mission to complete the loop before sunset. Non-stop except for the few steep rocky climbs, one on Rock-It and the other at the end of Coyote Trail. Made it back in the nick of time. GREAT RIDE! 
Ladera Dave08/18/11nice and cool today 
Goat Carl08/18/11Got off early and got to beat the heat today. This was my first time down rock-it, and wow! That was fun. Didn't know what to expect, so I had to walk a few of those quick up-hill transitions. It was 95* in Temecula at 4:15pm and an hours drive later in Laguna, it was 76* ahhhh... 
Enriquez08/16/11Started from Sheep Hills park near home...15 mins to the ranger station on the paved road. Felt good up Cholla, but felt even better down Rock-It!! Rode with my buddy who decided to try the rock garden for the 1st time...he did really good! GREAT RIDE!! 
BikeThisTrail08/14/11Good to be alive! 
Enriquez08/02/11Started around 6pm to give it time to cool down a bit. Decided to time the brutal climb up Cholla today (6 min 30 sec) Personal Best! I think the girl in the shorts and tiny tank top at the base of Cholla gave me xtra energy :) 
grimix07/28/11Kinda crowded this morning but everyone was polite & cheerful. Strange. More please. 
Ladera Dave07/14/11nice and cool tonight, good seeing you Jeff with KHS. 
Kimo06/30/11Great ride. Also did coyote on way to Cholla and after rock-it.

Twitch12/13/10I just had no go today 
javarocker11/06/10Nice easy ride with Chris after my long lay off. Great to be riding again. 
spartticus11/02/10good tempo ride today before Mt. Sac 
spartticus09/28/10trying a new seat (WTB Rocket - swapped out my WTB Devo) and a new tire in the rear (Hutchinson Python). Like the back tire w/ the new WTB mutano raptor up front... much more efficient than Nevegals. 
spookydave09/07/10I did it a little different as I started at the bottom of Stair Steps. I feel jipped for not getting any extra points for HAB / riding steps both ways. But then again, not as jipped as only getting 11 points for Tunnel. lol 
Lobotomized Sasquatch08/26/10Thought I could do a short ride at lunch since my ride at Peters was short this morning. But it was Hot out there today at noon, so this hurt more than I thought it would. Saw a guy climbing Rock-It on the way down; he told me not to try that, and I think I'll take that advice. 
MattyJ08/20/10Rock-it, love it. 
halfasst07/18/10Easy ride this morning. Not too hot at Aliso, nice breeze blowing up on the ridges. 
tdroesch07/14/10warming up out there. low energy but great day. 
NA1NSXR06/27/10EZ 
tdroesch06/27/10Went right at the bottom of Rock-it on Coyote Run. My personal best time for this ride + personal best up Cholla (7 min 13 sec)+ personal best time from home to the park entrance (11 min 4 sec). This is slow for most but I am stoked. 
Quikflip2706/21/10Second run to find my tools... Free chain tool, spoke tool, and 8spd quick link on Rock-it, if you can find them :( 
Twitch06/21/10Good to see Raul out riding today.

Quikflip2704/06/10Not my day... 
Twitch03/28/10Road in reverse. Tore a sidewall climbing Rocket. I was able to use a empty Gu pack in side the tire to hold the tube in and road out. 
Shigalert03/18/10Glad that daylight savings is here so we have our midweek group up and running again. First time down Rockit so we took it easy. Nice trail, "We'll be back".

javarocker08/30/09Solo early morning ride. Nice and cool down below but on the ridge it was already getting hot at 7:30 AM. 
vt1ryan08/20/09morning spin. No energy today. quick ride 
Congo Kid08/18/09Nice after work ride with my son today. Cool out, which was nice. 21:49 pace to base of Cholla, which was too fast, as heart rate wouldn't drop for Cholla and ridge. 9 hours sleep in 2 days is causing the racing heart I think. Quite a few folks out riding today. 
Greo1008/13/09quick loop with the newbe's Mike and Mike. Ripped Cholla in 4:29.40 middle ring all the way.

javarocker05/26/09Nice noon time ride with Chris. The weather stayed cool. Chris went OTB after the rock garden making one of the loudest body thuds hitting the ground that I have ever heard. I am sure that he is sore today.

Congo Kid09/25/08Nice after work ride with my son. His first time up Cholla without stopping! Woo-hoo! 22:25 split to bottom of Cholla. Didn't feel too strong today for some reason. Maybe my flu shot made me drag a bit today. Hot-hot-hot - 95 degrees at 5:15 pm when we left. And dry too. Didn't cool off much during the ride as the sun went down. Fun time though - sure beats being at the office!

MTB Fiend08/02/08This ride ended abruptly when my new chain broke. After dumping everything out of my Camelbak, I came to the realization I no longer had the chain pins I thought I had been carrying all these years. DOH! 
Kyle Rodgers08/02/08Rode entire route alone with only one stop at the top for a large group coming up. 
Holy Roller07/31/08Rode with Josh (my 14 YO son) and he taackled cholla & down Rockit, Good Job! 
javarocker07/31/08Nice afternoon ride with Jake.

bte0107/26/08Cholla #1 3.55 
Eric M07/19/08 
Congo Kid07/17/08Nice after work birthday ride with my son. He did well on his new superlight stumpy hard-tail. Lovely weather - nice and cool this evening. Saw a 3' rattler stretched out on the fire-road near the main gate. Alas - another year older! 
SuperDutyDave07/12/08Second ride today!! I love this!! 
ErikMM07/08/08Lap 1 milkin' it...slow recovery ride after yesterday's hammer... 
ErikMM07/08/08so so 
Holy Roller07/08/08A little slow as I'm getting back into the groove, but it's all good. The new Fox forks are a BIG difference; so much faster on the downhill, now all I need is a decent rear shock and this TREK 70 wont be such a POS. RIDE ON! 
javarocker07/06/08Rode with my 12 year old son. He did great and loved it. 
javarocker07/06/08Great ride with Chris. We did a little different route. Dripping Cave to up Rock-it, down Lynx, up Cholla, down Rock-it, accross Coyote and out. 
mpighini07/06/08Went with my wife and she came down Rock-it with me. 
BikenSkate07/05/08Fun, not that hard, Rock-it trail challenging because of shale type rock, but worth doing again. 
Tim Andrews07/05/08Nice ride w/ group. Getting over a cold. Threw up 3 times. Feeling good now. 
One Flew OTB07/05/08Morning group ride w/some of the Sho-air group. Added dripping cave on the way to Cholla. Split off before Mathis as Tim was hurling due to his cold. Ah youth! 
genusmtbkr506/30/08Burner lap before work. First time back on the SS since knee problems 
SuperDutyDave06/29/08Rode up Cholla to Top-of-World then down Rock-it. Cannot understand why this is not a Geoladder Ride but it was a great day to be outside. 
SuperDutyDave06/29/08This was the second time around the loop--from bottom of Cholla to bottom of Cholla was my time. No ride out to the parking lot in between 
scott v06/28/08Started off with Troy, Mark, John and Brian. Had to break away early. 
dman354006/23/08HOT HOT HOT

DONALD JACKSON06/13/08saw tom rollin down coyote while i went towards Rock it up rock it. down cholla 
trailking@cox.net06/05/08Easy paced ride today, short loop. Still amazed at the riders with no helmets. They must drive without seabelts too. 
project_d05/31/08Rode with the son on his first trip down Rock-It. GREAT TIMES!!! 
Holy Roller05/26/08AW-DC-Coyote (slippery & muddy uphill)- Cholla-Rockit-DC AW out= 11.8 mi 
Holy Roller05/23/08Was on fire for this ride (at least for me)trail was 100% dry, you could not even tell that it had rained. Wanted to get some riding in before we (possibly) get rained out. up Cholla in 3:00 flat, should give me something to shoot for next time. Happy Trails, Y'all! 
Holy Roller05/15/08Hit the trail at 3 and it was still hot, and no breeze! Rode the test bike (SP Enduro Expert) from Rock & Rode a 2nd day. Increased the front forks from 92 psi to 120, not as plush but it still rode like a dream. Will drive home and be back for a 2nd ride with Wil, so the next post will be 45+ miles from trailhead, right?? 
smoothe_chicken05/12/08Haven't done this ride in so long. Was so much fun and wish I could get extra credit for doing Dripping cave. lol. 
T3XonaRFX05/12/08Add 12 minutes to this ride as I lost signal on my Edge 12 minutes into it. First time with clip pedals. 
Holy Roller05/11/08Actual loop: AW Cyn-DC-Coyote-Cholla-Rockit- Coyote-DC-AW Cyn= 12.0 miles

mt171903/26/08very rough on the second half. steep drops rock gardens. use caution. 
DONALD JACKSON03/24/08Rock it seemed to be a little tougher than I recall. Deeper holes and no good line Saw Rushak headin in at 6. Grovin to the tunes I think.

MTB Fiend01/13/08Up Dripping Cave - up Coyote sun was in my eyes, a bit tough to see. Nice to get out to a different park, and out of the wind.

Waldo12/31/07Added this after the Meadows/Rockit loop for a good day of ups and downs!

singlespeedrider12/27/07Did not do this exact route. Started on Laguna Canyon and came up Stairsteps then down Rockit and up Cholla down Stairsteps. Stairsteps is a little more advanced than I am really enjoyed rock it and cholla is a fun ride going up. One day I will do it without walking.

DONALD JACKSON12/12/07in reverse, did not clean rock it. Some new rain ruts make it hard to find a good line up. Sort of got caught by the darkness in the park.out at 5;30 Ranger was way cool about it 
escargot12/10/07First ride with Bullit. This bike is so heavy. I had to stop toward the top of Cholla! Going down Rock-it was so fun though. Thanks Bullit! 
escargot12/10/07

xhuskr10/29/07Demoed a bionicon...pedaled better than I thought it would and was pure butter on the way down...actual mileage less.. 
project_d10/27/07Air was clean. We rode a lot more than this, threw it Five-Oaks and Meadows. 
RollnStone10/27/07Lots of MTB at Aliso today. 
DONALD JACKSON10/26/07Dos 9er. The plan was Yop of the world then meadows, BUT Meadows is closed, Due to fire potential and danger, Hey that is understandable, So headed back and down Rock it. I noticed a big difference from a full suspension on rock it Could see that 1/3 of the Santa Ana's are toast. 
djnicholasc10/21/07Cholla will get your heart racing but its not too long. Rock-it is super rocky but makes for a technical and fun downhill. 
ZULU10/16/07Lunch time ride. 
TBlazen10/10/07single speed up rocket. had to walk the rocks a bit but cleared most else 
jbbarrette10/07/07slow easy ride, even managed to break a chain

PaulV06/12/07another great day to ride, hard to truly appreciate how good we have it here (but trying!)sunny, good temps, and good trail conditions. This is a nice quick route, good for a pace ride. splits: gate to Cholla bottom=17:58, up cholla=4:42, gate to Rock-It bottom=31:06, gate to gate (just barely squeeked in under 43)= 42:59.

JERRY03/20/07Thanks Ladera Cyclery for letting me test ride your Yeti AS-R SL. The Fox F100 feels really plush! 
tmoney03/18/07This route needs to include Dripping Caves and Coyote in the point mix. 
tmoney03/16/07The trails are getting powdery. Switch to >2.30's and the grip returns. 
trekstorm03/16/07I may have to change my name to "crash". Was on Cholla taking a breather and fell when I couldn't get my shoe out from my clip. How embarrasing. 
oc_laske03/14/07another after-work ride (cholla, top-of-the-world, mathis, dripping cave, coyote) 
fatposom03/13/07Great ride, big fun factor. 
oc_laske03/09/07Up cholla to top of the world, down mathis, around dripping cave, up coyote and back up to canyon vistas. Not exactly the described route, but seems to be the closest I can get. 
oc_laske03/08/07another after-work ride. can't wait for DST! 
oc_laske03/06/07after-work ride on the cog. warm weather was a nice change ... 
Mooserider03/06/07Good ride with dad, did a little extra credit rode art of the way back up rocket to get a dropped water bottle 
OCThrasher03/05/07Rode with TD8 and trailblazer. Cholla still kicks my butt. Just when you think all is easy, Cholla comes along. Walked bike little less than half way up. First time down Rock-it...what a blast. Definatly worth to ride up Cholla. 
xhuskr03/04/07Added another climb up Cholla and down Lynx......good to be riding again. 
TD803/03/07Good Saturday morning with Matt and Shane. Changed routes mid-way for the rookie of the group (He did suprisingly well down rock-it). 
TD803/03/07A little better than the luge. 
oc_laske03/02/07quick ride after work. new BB seems to be working fine (except when it came loose - my fault, probably) 
Mooserider03/01/07Good ride after work, rain sucks i did not ride for four days, hard to get warm still cold out 
xhuskr02/25/07First time on the bike in 5 weeks (and 5 pounds). It was embarrasing as I found Cholla a bit harder this time around. But, I did get the chance to see how well the knee would hold up. I'll be back next weekend! 
trekstorm02/23/07Had enough time to do Rock-it. Problem was that when I went up Cholla for second time someone else flew down and almost crashed in to me but I ended losing my balance and had to stop. Had to go up on a flat part to get back on bike. Whoever that was- Thanks. 
Don02/20/07Trail is in really good shape 
srehorn02/19/07up mathis, ow. 
SouthOCmtbgal02/16/07got a little warm at 11am, but still a great day to ride

oc_laske01/19/07first lunchtime ride in a while. didn't feel very strong (still fighting off a cold). did really well coming down rock-it (rigid fork and all) until I pinch flatted on the last rock garden. I've never had a tire go flat so fast - the tear was HUGE! 
trekstorm01/19/07Felt good enough to do it again. Only it got dark in a hurry. Last few miles were cold and dark. 
Claudio01/14/07We waited until mid-day to avoid the chilly temperatures. Overall the ride was great. We threw in a quick downhill loop on 5-Oaks...good times!
