A popular figure-eight loop that begins with a moderate climb up Turnbull Canyon fire road followed by a ridgeline traverse along 'Skyline' towards Hacienda Heights where you'll perform the thrilling 7th Avenue singletrack loop. During the return leg along Skyline you'll peel-off up towards Turnbull Canyon's water tank to take in an impressive 360 degree view. A brief high-speed singletrack connector trail will deposit you back onto Skyline where you'll continue West and past Turnbull Canyon fire road for the cherry-on-the-top, one more first-class singletrack descent. Friends Avenue & Beverly Blvd comprise the final road-going 0.6 miles.

01/01/13 First time on this ride. Was harder than I expected. Had a nice chat with some guys. Got in one guy's way on the way up the switchbacks (SORRY DUDE, MY BAD). I have some work to do to be strong enough to ride the uphill singletrack.
