Situated in the charming college town of Claremont, California, this versatile 14-mile out-and-back trail presents a playground for bikers of all experience levels. Despite its "Very Easy" tag, it offers much more than just a leisurely ride. Ranging from fun single tracks to stream crossings, this trail should be your next weekend destination.
Pro Tip: Alternatively, exit the 210 at Fruit, take a right on Esperanza and continue to Lowell Brandt Park. It's another good starting point with public restrooms.
Ride under a natural canopy that offers a respite from the Southern Californian sun. Large brown bears have been spotted, so always be aware of your surroundings.
The trail changes complexion as you ascend. It starts off as a "green" trail suitable for beginners but becomes more of a "blue" trail, challenging riders with more steep and rocky terrains as you get above the outdoor horse arena.
If you're an adrenaline junkie, high lines, jumps, and other freeride features are aplenty, especially off the side of the main single track.
Claremont's versatile trail offers something for everyone: from flowy fire roads and scenic beauty to adrenaline-pumping features. Whether you're a nature lover or an adrenaline junkie, you're in for a treat. So gear up, hit the trail, and don't forget to share your experience with us!Happy Riding!
