Los Angeles, California , United States
23 mi



ft elev +


Let's try and beat last year's turnout! Photo by John Watson.
Things you should expect, lots of climbing, bears, bobcats, beers, maybe a mountain lion, more climbing, lots of rad individuals, and one hell of a good time!  This is a self supported camping trip, all individuals are responsible for food, water, camping gear, and good moods!  This will be a no drop ride, there will be no individual left behind.  Feel free to call the shop or email us with any questions.  This is not going to be a an easy ride, but trust us, it will definitely be worth it! Please "Join" the event on blackriver to let us know you're coming! 
Getting camp all setup.
Yes, fires are allowed!
Wake up...wake up!
Here's a photo of the very steep paved section of the climb, once you hit dirt it mellows out quite a bit because it becomes railroad grade because you are then following the historic Mt. Lowe Railway. This is not an easy climb but well worth it. Photo by John Watson.
We'll wanna take a rest after that paved section!
Take the Trolley Car away and insert yourself with a bike and that's how awesome this campout is going to be. HISTORIC!
There is rich history where the Mt. Lowe campground now is, this is where we'll be sleeping!
