Socal - Los Angeles County - Brentwood NickNames: #WestridgeFireRoad
Just over 2 miles west of the 405 on Sunset turn north (the only way you can turn) on Mandeville. First Stop sign (Westridge) turn left and continue 2.3 miles to the top and fire gate. Watch posted parking signs, no parking right at the top on weekends. Over the fire gate and 3.7 miles to the top. Single track parallels the fire road and is best ridden from the top back to your car.

Road Sullivan ridge to the top and took the single track all the way back down. As I neared the end of the single track, near Camp Josepho, I looked across to Westridge and saw some HUGE earthmoving equipment on and above Westridge. This didn’t seem to be the usual yearly grading of the fire road. The equipment, two dozers and a semi plus several pickup trucks seemed to be running a pipe of some type up the existing single track to the top of that first hill, the one that ends at the fire gate where Westridge starts. I’m not sure what this means and will try to ride Westridge tomorrow morning to take a look. I’m not sure if that first hill (bottom of Westridge) is protected by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy or not. The “sign” for the conservancy is about ¼ mi past the area where the work is going on. I’d hate to think someone has somehow gotten a hold of that property and is stating to build a house, you know… putting in the utilities first! I road Westridge a few weeks ago and didn’t see any signs of development at that time. Haven’t we paved over enough of LA? Westridge is the first place I ever road a mountain bike, 1985…
Anyone have any info? Please post. If I get over there this week I’ll find out whats up.
