Description

The Luge is a renowned SoCal singletrack descent that looks like… well, a luge track. With banked berms on every corner, the swoop and flow of this classic trail is nearly unbeatable!

Over the years, the Luge has taken a beating from trail traffic due its immense popularity. Braking bumps and washouts have formed, making this flow trail relatively rough for what it is.

Despite a few rocks here and there, and the wear and tear to the trail, this sweet slice of singletrack is still uber-fast and way fun. It’s even a great choice for early intermediate riders… if they can brave the pedal to the top.

While there are a few different ways to access the top of The Luge, mapped here is one of the shortest routes to loop this fabulous SoCal descent.
