A not so bad climb up the smooth, decomposed granite Indian Truck Trail (2622 feet in 7.4 miles) followed by a bit steeper, looser climb along Main Divide to the top of Upper Holy Jim (1141 feet in 3.0 miles). Then the fun begins with 5 miles of downhill, the first 4 being some of the sweetest singletrack in the Santa Ana's (the absolute best singletrack on the east side). The last 1 mile of Coldwater Trail does not follow the original trail and is crazy steep (1380 feet of DH) and rutted, so make sure you have the energy to finish this ride safely.

Just a bit windy and cold at the top today.
Last time I rode Coldwater was 3 years ago. I forgot all about how nice the first 2/3 of it was and I forgot how tough it was after that. On the last 1/3 of it there are some descents of 50% grade at least. At the very end there is a 15 ft vertical drop. I had the same inconveniences as last time to get out of the gravel mine. (at the bottom- after Coldwater) I had to squeeze through an 8 inch gap created when I forced open the existing gate. I had to remove the pedals and rotate the handle bar 90 degrees.
Fantastic night adventure with Ben and Daniel !! I should have had a Headlamp to see around the corners ....next time ?
its actually easier at night. fun ctuff!

Lovely ride with Ben and Jr. Met JD and Jake. Fun ride liked the show Ben and Jr as you guys came down Coldwater lol... Good times
Sunday morning memorial ride got postponed and we were there so took advantage and kept going and Todd,Ben,and I ran into JD and the tank (jake) for a fun ride down Coldwater ! trobe was right its in great shape but still walked way more than previous times ...Ben gave us the show when he morphed into Cornholio ..LMAO
Another great adventure with Todd and Jr., and even better running into JD & Jake at the parking and descending CW together. Not my best skills day but managed to make it fairly unscathed physically, mentally I need therapy after almost slipping into a black, well brown hole :/ no photo's can't prove Shite! Great ride...Hardtail with slicks not the rig for this.
Fun stuff with the Crew of two. Jr & Dan. Your attracting termites jr.
God to get out and ride again, been a while, and missed a couple shows behind me on coldwater, a stick even got to tag along on the rest of our ride in my dads forehead:P
