About Mt. Pinos Trail in Frazier Park
There’s nothing like mountain biking in the pines! Mt Pinos is the tallest peak in Ventura County at 8820 feet. Although it’s a strenuous ride up the mountain, it’s mucho fun (especially on the downhill return). It’s 99% rideable and 100% fun.
Mt Pinos Trail
The Mt Pinos trail is about 8 miles of steady climbing, climbing and climbing.Approximately 80% of the trail is single track, and 95% of it is though tall pine trees. Since it’s an out-and-back ride, you can turn around at any time and glide back to the parking lot.
Mount Pinos Area
Located in the southern portion of the Los Padres National Forest about 85 north of Los Angeles, the Mt Pinos area offers incredible views of the Sierras, the San Joaquin Valley, and Antelope Valley from various vantage points. You will also get to tall jefferey pine forests as well as alpine meadows. If that alone is not enough, the miles of buff singletrack from the summit of Mt Pinos at 8,830 feet down to the bottom of the McGill trail at 6,000 feet should do the trick. According to how do you setup your ride you could could get as much as 20+ miles of riding and a darn good workout to boot.
