Not long ago, we wrote about using different resources for discovering new places to ride. This featured loop, which has quickly become a favorite of ours, was recently spotlighted in the monthly publication that AAA (Auto Club of So Cal) sends to its Members. The article actually focused on the fun things to go do in the city of La Verne, and a short blurb on Marshall Canyon was mentioned. It described it as a lush and shade filled canyon for most of it’s 5 miles, making it a great ride during those crazy hot days! A river runs through it, so there are a few sections where you can ride through the water. Marshall Canyon also connects to Claremont Wilderness Park, which was voted one of the best places to hike in Riverside Co a couple of years ago by the Press Enterprise!
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. There are approximately 9 miles of trail network in our featured loop, most of which circles around the lake and the park.
