Despite fires still in rideable shape, recent rains have left some deep ruts though. More importantly, the park this leads into is closed due...

The hidden drop has a lot of brush. Could use a nice clean up and the trail will be dialed! After the drop the rest of the trail is good

 Tried out the Dead Cow -> Suicide loop while I was visiting family in Santa Monica. Dead cow may not be impossible to ride up, but is is very difficult, leaving me to assume most push. Also I highly recommend hitting this loop early in the morning or late in the day, there was almost no shade to hide under and being from the PNW I felt like I was dying the whole way up.

Suicide was a blast, the trial is littered with rock garden after rock garden. The dirt is hard packed, but there is plenty of loose dirt and rock all the way down. Throughout the trail there are plenty of jumps and drops, but nothing that screamed pro's only.

Finally, although a DH bike would have been nice, I used a Pivot Mach 6 that I rented and had no trouble, although I did skip a few of the drops. Full face and DH style pads are also not necessary, just use caution.

 I'm going to be in the area in a few days and am hoping to grab a quick ride. Where did you rent your bike?

 I just rode suicide after the rain and overall it held up well, but the landings on the drops are rutted to hell. A few friends and I want to restore some features and clean up the landings while it's still wet. Hit me up if you're in!

 I rode suicide for the first time yesterday. Had a wreck in a rock garden and lost my action camera off my helmet. I hadn't even realized the bracket broke until I got to the bottom. If anybody is riding that trail and finds a black generic action camera 4K, would you let me know? I'd love to see the footage. Thanks

George
