Knowing that it is winter (despite our 75 degree temps today) what do you guys think as far as off road for part of the way through the forest? My apologies, I haven't explored the Angeles Forest area before. My wife and I moved to California not too long ago so I'm a noob down here.
I think that it's only 60 miles on the 210, one hour straight shot.
Going up into the forest adds 40 miles and an hour to the journey, assuming you catch good weather.
I don't know any direct forest roads on the face of the mountain, but I have ridden the Rincon years ago (don't know if you still can). Looks like you could hook that and the W Cucamonga Truck Trail together with a little pavement, but your travel time will be way more than sensible considering the 6 hour race starts at 8.30 am....
If I were you, I'd just hit the 210 freeway for the 60 miles.
7am on Sunday morning, you should have the road to yourself.
