Route Directions 

Up Sullivan Canyon singletrack then down the aptly named Upper and Lower Hectic singletrack only to ascend Caballero doubletrack. Brief jaunts on Dirt Mulholland and Temescal Fire Roads bring you to Backbone and J Drop singletracks. The short ride up the Sullivan Fire Road ends with a very fast descent down Squirrel Cage singletrack. Warning: Hectic, J-Drop, and Squirrel Cage are all steep and technical singletracks that will challenge riders of all levels. Exercise CAUTION. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO CALL THE FIRE HOTLINE (805)488-8147 BEFORE RIDING ANY ROUTE IN THE SANTA MONICA'S AS THEY CLOSE FREQUENTLY FOR FIRE DANGER.

Made it to top of Sullivan in 32:10, quick rest at top of hub and down. Solo ride- pushed it pretty hard.
Tough to find the J-Drop section off of the trail, pay more attention next time!
Very hard pushing in the mud looks almost like new parts got created after the storm, jdrop in great shape and takes u deeper and faster. Watch out for the tree on the backbone the trail is blocked and u need to crawl under ram into it thinking it's just loose branches.
All doable 2 dabs on j drop, is the most technical in the area hectic looks like a fire rd compared. Glad I got my enduro on descends killed me on the way back though.
Back on the bike 5 months later...perfect way to kick off the holiday.
