One great link up of BLT trails starts from Red Tail Roost (Laguna Mountain Volunteer Center). From here, ride Red Tail Roost to the left when you exit the parking area. Pedal up an easy climb before a big downhill stretch. The initial part of the descent is open with big swooping turns before dropping into the pines. If you like technical challenges, there are a few sections of log features to test your skills.

The Red Tail Roost section dumps out onto a dirt road. Turn left here and bear left again going up Agua Dulce Creek. The road will climb gradually and eventually funnel into a singletrack. Keep climbing at bit more before a short descent to cross Agua Dulce Creek before pedaling uphill to a intersection.

The upper part of Red Tail Roost on BLT to Noble Canyon is open and flowing
