    Off the 14 fwy in Acton. Good times this morning - 8 of us enjoyed some narrow twisty goodness. Not too far from Newhall. J-Chap came from there and it took him about 15 mins. You can visit the SCV Dirtbags group to see the map I posted yesterday but I'd recommend riding it the first time with someone who knows the trail or you might not find the trail head.

    The Idle Hour Tr. was in nice shape today. Most of the San Gabriel trail hold up well in the rain. It rained on me all the way back to Pasadena.

    I really don't know about Maple Springs but Sycamore sheds water really well. Heck you can probably ride it right now in the rain.

    Just got back from a hike, the trails are way to wet and sticky for bicycles

    Maple is in perfect riding condition. Its wet but dirt will not stick to your tires.

    Anyone think STT - Old Camp - Luge is rideable right now? Not sure how much rain they got over there or if it will be a mud fest.

    If you ride STT up and back you should be fine - the Luge takes a day or two to dry out. I'm waiting for Oaks to open. The rain wasn't significant here so I'm hoping for a late afternoon ride w nice packed down dirt trails.

    Ended up riding STT to Luge with my 12 year old - his first time on the Luge and he had fun - Riding the street always sucks with the Luge, but the dirt was good and not wet, and we only saw a handful of people in the afternoon

    I did the same ride yesterday. I can attest to the fact that the dirt does not get in better condition than yesterday!
