Chilao / Charlton

Undoubtedly one of the best rides in the San Gabriels, this ride will leave you exhilirated and exhausted at the same time. Because this ride starts out at a high elevation, it is aerobically challenging. The somewhat technical downhill single sections will be challenging on some areas even to the best of riders. The trails are well maintained for the most part and feature an interesting blend of single tracks going through pine tree forests and interesting San Juan-like rock formations.
