This lowest section of the Gabrelino Trail is probably as beginner as it gets in the San Gabriel Mountains when it comes to single track, and even so, its still a very fun ride. Starting at the JPL Parking Lot on Windsor, you ride the same paved access road as you would to ride El Prieto, but at the first fork in the road, hang a Left, rather than a Right. From here you continue on a mix of fire road and single track to the final destination... an old Forest Service Dam and man made "waterfall" where you can rest and have a snack before you ride back. This trail has a good mix of stream crossings, some mild chunk, some tiny exposure, and is not a strenuous ride what-so-ever. It's great to ride on a hot day as most of the trail is tree covered, but beware of hiker overload, as tons of people hike this route in big groups.
