This is an excellent training ride or a ride for someone who's ready for some longer climbs but not quite ready for anything technical. This ride starts with a climb up North Ridge, followed by a decent to the Four Corners on Telegraph Road, to a short, singletrack climb up Bovinian before you cruise down South Ridge at warp speed (Caution: always be aware of joggers, hikers and other riders going the opposite direction as this is a very popular park). On clear days, make sure you take the time to check out the incredible views of Catalina and beyond.

12/27/13 Friend's tire kept flatting. Then the patch didn't hold and flatted again. Then the new tube had a defective valve and wouldn't take air! Turned into the "Flat Tire Hell" day but what the heck, enjoyed being on the trail today! He rode out on the flat tire finally, haha!
