    • Trail UpdateThe high grass on the trail close to HWY 38 makes it very interesting taking corners, unless you have it memorized, you never know when one of those big rocks are right in the way. Lots of Coyotes out there, and there is a big hole (some animal made a home) on the single track below the ranger station. Still a great trail.

    • Trail UpdateTrail was/is pretty overgrown in the lower areas, but still a fun ride, I just moved to redlands, found the trail & have been hitting it just about every weekend and some during the week. The lower parts (below and above greenspot) are getting pretty sandy from the dirtbikers making thier way around, but up top by the ranger station is a blast, fun little single track with great rocks and obstacles. Email me if your in the area and wanna ride any time.

    • Trail UpdateMentone Trail-i know its hot and everyones going up the mountain but this trusty old trail needs some maintenance very over grown wil try to work on it, the weed are killing my legs, on night rides it is much more diffcult to judge the trail and large rocks.

    • Trail UpdateWash Trail - Yucaipa-The Rutriders have been doing trail building and maintenance in this area for years, and have been doing a great job of it. These trail have had the rocky spots for years and up till now no one has altered them. Some people have recently done some new trail building to add some new variety to the area and that work has been appreciated by all because there are now new options and ways around boring dirt roads. The new trails have needed some alterations as they develope, but alternate routs do no destroy the original trail, they just give options. Some new riders to the area have chosen to remove technical rocks from develped trails because they have dificulty with them, or just because they like smooth riding. This is not trail maintenance, it is trail alteration without consideration to the many others who have been riding these trails for years and liked them. If someone didn't like an area, it would be better to build their own alternate route rather than destroy these fun sections that have been here for years.

      P.S. I am not a rutrider, but these trails would not be as good as they are if it were not for them.

    • Trail UpdateMentone Singletrack-the rutriders meet every weds. night at 6pm off hwy 38 across from post office come ride with us and test youself we do make things very challeging our reputation says it all


    • Trail UpdateMentone Singletrack-In response to the ďRutrider": Iím sorry I spent hours and hours cutting away bushes and fixing erosion spots the bikes cause. Next time I guess I need to ask your permission to fix trails on Public Land. Any other Trails I canít repair?
      If youíre looking for more challenging spots to ride go over about 50 Yards to the dry riverbed. Itís full of rocks to challenge you


    • Trail UpdateMentone Singletrack-Please do not remove the rocks. Learn how to manuever past them. They make the singletrack much more exciting.


    • Trail UpdateMentone Single Track-rode from saffire looks like someone is grooming the trails but in a bad way please leave the obstacles alone, leave this a challenging trail, stop removing rocks and adding dirt in the areas,. around the ranger station has been messed with too. its not fun if you cannot try the rock obstacles. some days you make them, some days not, just enjoy them!!!stop making it so easy even the area by the construction has been altered. rutriders rule
