The Chantry Flats / Mt. Zion / Gabrielino trail loop is not for the faint of heart, nor those afraid of heights. The route is almost entirely single track with a good blend of exposed cliff sides, water crossings, rock gardens, and some really sweet, fast and smooth sections. It is a physically grueling challenge getting up to Mt. Zion – especially the one mile hike a bike section. Be prepared!
We’ll meet at the bottom of the Chantry Flats parking area (that’s at the last intersection as you’re about to head up) and consolidate into as few cars as possible before heading up to the Chantry Flats parking area.
Remember, meet us at the BOTTOM (not at the top in the Chantry parking lot).
