This is an easy ride up Encinal Backbone to Etz Malloy and back! It’s all singletrack with a mild, steady grade as we go up the hill. The ride is 8 miles round trip. Feel free to bring a tasty beverage or refreshment to enjoy once we reach the top.
PARK IN THE DIRT LOT ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE LA COUNTY FIRE DEPT ON ENCINAL CANYON RD.
You must always come prepared with a bike in good working condition, water, a helmet, as well as any protective gear you deem necessary. It’s a good idea to bring trail food if you haven’t eaten in the last few hours. You should bring an extra innertube in case of a flat.
We always host “no drop” rides. This means we won’t leave anyone behind. We always welcome new riders and might have a loaner riding light if you call in advance.
Mountain biking has its inherent risks, including serious injury or death. Your participation is an acknowledgment of those risks and an assumption of liability. Riding at night requires sufficient lighting. We recommend a light with a minimum of 1000 lumens.
