The perfect mountain sampler

Come sample the best of what Mt. Wilson has to offer in the fun, gravity-assisted format of Enduro. Our shuttle takes you from the bottom of one trail to the top of the next for over four hours. Designed for riders who want to see and ride a variety of trails surrounding Mt. Wilson, this tour offers a half-day of downhill riding. After you are warmed up, the shuttle takes you to the main event.

You can choose from two location options: 

  • Mt. Wilson Enduro ends in Altadena: Arroyo Secco (JPL Parking Lot) 2807 Windsor Ave Altadena
  • Mt. Wilson Enduro Darkside Transition ends in Arcadia: Tindalo Rd at W Floral Ave Arcadia

Enduro Day and Darkside Transition Schedule

In the late morning, we head above the 4000-foot elevation to ride where it is cool and less traveled. We are the only outfitter with access to Charlton Flats, Chilao, Red Box, and West Fork.

The trails range from 2.2 to 4.5 miles, and their proximity to roads make them easy to session. Expect to ride 17-21 miles and to descend around 11,000 feet before returning to your car.

The final drop is either Eaton Saddle or Mt. Wilson Observatory. If you are unsure of which shuttle to sign up for, this is the one. You will sample a lot of the mountain.
