This ride takes off in Lake View Terrace, which is located near the Hansen Dam Equestrian Center. Two to three riders needed!
4 – 6 hours,10 miles
We meet up at the end of Orcas Ave. by the public riding arena.
After a warm up in the arena we head out east to the riverbed. We pass underneath the 210 Freeway and begin a short climb up in to the Angeles National Forest. Soon we drop back into Oliver Canyon, ending up in an enchanting trail labyrinth, covered with brushy tall oak trees! The trail offers its challenges with switchbacks and up and down. After a climb up to the ridge on to the Ebey Herreres Truck Trail, we start heading north. We then take the switchback down through the second valley we ride. The winding path leads us across idyllic meadows until we hit Oliver Canyon Road. A riverbed guides us back down to the Hansen Dam Equestrian Center where the trailer is located.
We end this ride day with a delicious picnic!
