Cherry Canyon

Average Rating:    (3.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Mixed fire road and single track dirt trails. One of those trails where you could be up there all day or get in a good, 1 hour, workout. There are a few good challenging stair climbs and very steep extra credit section near the top. If you ride early enough you will miss all the hikers and horse riders but not reccomended for a weekend afternoon ride. Rare occurance of snake, mountain lion, bobcat and cyote sightings. Accesible from Hempstead off Chevy Chase or Padres Trail off Descanso.

Summary:
Some nice short singletrack trails on Cerro Negro trail, Liz's Loop and ultimate destination trail. Fire roads are very smooth so not as much fun to ride. You can get in about an hour or less of riding here unless you start repeating trails, so not really a destination trail but good if you are in the area and looking for a quick after work ride.

Recommended Route:
You can park at the Glendale Sports Complex and ride up the Catalina trail from there to add some additional mileage and a more sustained climb. All the trail heads on the La Canada side have limited or no parking.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
El Prieto, La Tuna Canyon

Summary:
Cherry is a great place to ride when you don't have a lot of time and want to get in some good singletrack action. The entire loop starting from Forrest Hill Dr. is a little over 4 miles. In the loop are 4 different singletracks with varying levels of difficulty (from easiest to most difficult) - Liz's Loop, Lower Owl, Conservancy Trail and Cerro Negro. I've been riding MTB since January 2013 and I still have to walk 2 - 3 sections of Cerro Negro. I would highly recommend this trail to beginners as the climbs are not too bad (under 1000 ft. of climb total) and gives different levels of singletrack practice.

Recommended Route:
Start at Forrest Hill Dr. at the gate.
1. Go up the fire road to Liz's Loop.
2. Take Liz's Loop which drops you off at a fire road.
3. Make a left and catch Lower Owl single track
4. Ride through the parking area gate and head up to the five point.
5. Ride up Motor Ridge Way fire road to the tower.
6. Go down Sugar Loaf to Cerro Negro
7. Go up past the five point up to the water tower(?) and power tower
8. Stay to the left and catch Conservancy Trail
9. End of Conservancy drops you off at Forrest Hill fire road.
