Bonelli park in San Dimas is a multi-recreational park that offers camping, boating, hiking, golfing, and of course, mountain biking. It is adjacent to Raging Waters, and it is quickly accessible from any county. It is a great place to go visit on your own, or spend the day with the family as there is something for everyone. There are approximately 9 miles of trail network in our featured loop, most of which circles around the lake and the park. There are also plenty of trails to ride within the center of the park itself if our loop keeps you wanting for more. Be advised that this ride is all sun exposure, and there is plenty of climbing to keep your legs pumping.
San Dimas can be a scorcher in the summer so get there early and bring plenty of hydration to avoid heat related injuries. There are trail maps available on their website, with trail names, but you will notice signs that only state “Bonelli Park“. Follow these and you’ll be fine. The general idea is to loop around the park in a clockwise motion.
Bonelli Park is also a venue for the Kenda Cup XC race, which just took place on March 12th. The Bike this Trail crew was there to check out the event and cheer on the racers! There were tons of racers on hand, and plenty of vendors to keep visitors and participants busy. If you get a chance to attend these races and participate, please do so! There are plenty of races throughout the year such as Non-Dot Adventures or the Over the Hump Series that allows regular Joes like you and I to race against each other! They are a lot of fun, and a great way to show support for our growing sport. The next event will be the US Cup, to be held on April 9th, 2016.Click here for Map
