      Nice ride. Dry terrain more than previous months but no big issues. Lots of birds activity for those bird watchers. I got to see a Red Tail Hawk...

       This appears to apply not only to Telegraph Canyon Trail, but all trails at Chino Hills State Park (CHSP) - Chino Hills State Park Posted Order 951-19-003, Dated July 1, 2019 states "Whereas: The growth and popularity of Electric Bicycles (e-Bikes) has numerous negative impacts to the special resources, park operation, and the unique visitor experiences afforded by Chino Hills State Park. E-Bikes are an emergent technology generally inconsistent with the Chino Hills State Park experience. E-Bikes can have negative impacts on the regional wildlife found within Chino Hills State Park by interfering with wildlife activity and movement, of which Chino Hills State Park is vital for...Therefore: Closed to E-BIKES: All trails..." (www.parks.ca.gov/pages/648/files/posted%20orders%20complete%20as%20of%207-20-19.pdf, see page 12). CHSP has not issued any subsequent orders changing the order.
