    • Trail UpdateHeavily Overgrown...-Rode up to the ruins of this house on Sunday, along with Zippy MacPhee and Byondo. It was a planned detour during our ride up Cobal Canyon and down through Marshall Canyon. Forgot how much of an extra climb it is - the house elevation is actually just a bit higher than the high point of Cobal.

      The trail from the helipad area up to the house is severely overgrown now. The first little section was a definite hike-a-bike, but the rest is mostly ridable. You'll be going over and through a lot of bushes. Lots of nasty thorns to scrape you as you go by - clearly part of the witch's defenses.

      We left a geocache up there for people to find (sorry if that offends you) - just go to geocaching.com and search on the map and you'll get the details.

      For those who are having trouble finding the right trail, here is a map of the route from the Stephens Ranch Rd parking lot: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3839797

    • Trail UpdateNo More Blair-I followed this trail up only to find a foundation =( I guess it was part of the fires that happened up here not to long ago. Most of the house looked like it went up in flames and was then demolished....Sad!! I was looking forward to finding a completely abandoned house.

    • Trail UpdateThe Witch-I was up there last Saturday in the middle of the heat,The trail is in good cond and has not been graded. I don't think they will grade it.
      About 1/2 down there is a new single track on the left side that go down the ridge, it needs a little work then it will be perfect.
      The Witch was find but I paid my dues on the way up, Prison camp was steep and hot, it sucked everything out of me.
      The Witch wins again!

    • Trail UpdateHidden Trail-They graded the dirt road by the helispot so it makes it hard to spot the trail because of a mound of dirt. There is a singletrack due north from the helispot that goes up and eastward and is marked with a flag (don't know where that goes). The ST that we took was actually slightly NorthWest of the helispot. There's alot of mustard plants overgrowing the last mile of trail. Bees were numerous. Watch out for the massive crack in the trail (due to storm runoff) just above the huge concrete block in the ground.
      The downhill is fast and fun. The overgrowth can be annoying in shorts, so wear pants (also good as there are many sharp rocks).
      The house was cool, but from what I understand, its burned in the past few years. We figured they abandoned the home due to land instability and/or mudslide(s). As we can find no road leading to the house, we feel safe in our assumption. Anyone know for sure?

    • Trail UpdateHis Post Is Fine-Just because you do not have then mental power to use a GPS dont give him a hard time for posting a legit post. He talked about the trails and the ride and even gave cords for the hard to find house. Just cause you don't know what to do with is no reason to bash him.
      The rest of us appreciate his post. Thanks Tree68.
      As for the butt F%$k that is not even brave enough to sign his name after his stupid inane post, you should be the one going elsewhere. And never come back.

Where's Blair??-Ok I have been all over the claremont/marshall canyon trails so give me some hints... if your starting in claremont and you start to the left you get to the top and there's two options to go to marshall the first left at the abandoned machine thingy or the second left after the abandoned machine thingy? I could probably get there myself if someone gave me a little direction... is it on the claremont side or marshall canyon side? I've probably been right by it & didn't even know it!!!!

    • Trail UpdateReally-Blair witch is just an extension of Marshall Canyon.On the upper part.I'm really bad with directions so I won't even attempt it.But Mr. Bonk is the local trail leader in this area and has been riding it for a number of years.I've been there a couple of times and still manage to get lost trying to get up there.It's a fairly easy ride and you'd have to hook up with the bottom portion to really make a ride of it as I consider it to short of a ride.Now that the house is gone, it just doesn't have the same appeal to me any longer.Email for Mr. Bonk is : mrbonk1@yahoo.com

    • Trail UpdateGirls Just Wanna Have Fun.....-Hey I have been all over those trails up there, but never have I ever seen this "Witch" trail... anyone interested in being trail leader & taking me up there? (Probably other biker friends too?) We are experienced riders and will do our best to "keep up". Obviously we won't be able to ride until this weather passes, but if anyone would like to plan a ride Sunday's work best for me... any takers??

    • Trail UpdateThe Witch-In spite of the injury, I had a great time! I'll be back!

      Mr Bonk took us to the Blair Witch house last Sunday. A bit of a climb, but no too bad, considering the great view when you reach the house. We poked around for a while through the rubble (nothing left but the chimney, after the Curve fire is Sept '02. As we headed back to the bikes, I tried to convince Sam that his new custom-built Intense Tracer was mine (he wasn;t buying it! Too bad....what an awesome ride!). Maybe that's what jinxed me. The ride down from the house to the equestrian center was fast and easy. Then we took the stream crossings trail, which was a little washed out, but great fun none the less. Now I'm back in familiar territory, probably ridden this stretch 50 times. Just past the tunnel, I tried to launch off of a rock. The launch was great.....the landing? Not so hot. THUD! OTB and time for a dirt nap! My hand is feeling much better now that I picked out the bone fragment. I don't need no stinkin' doctor! Holding a fork is an accomplishment, but I can actually do it today, 60 hours later. I'll try to post a picture.

    • Trail UpdateTHE WITCH-Rode up there Sunday with Lloyd, Victor, Sam, and Mike. The other ridder had too go home and paint the house.[you faker] the trail has changed a lot since the rain, there is lots of growth in the area and since the house has burned there is little or no traffic up there. this makes a great fast downhill !!!!!!
      Lloyd was on my tail all the way down. Victor left his brains at the shop so he was taking it easy. Sam was braking in the new ride. [no scraches yet]
      Mike was a diffrent story [I think Mike had vibes from the house]on the way down Mike hit the rock just below the tunnel, he pinched flated on over the bars he goes. he must have punched the ground with his right hand hard. I have never seen a hand swell up that fast. maybe he will post photos?

    • Trail UpdateTHE WITCH-I was up there today, She does not want anyone near the house.
      I started off late Shocktower was sick so I was on my own. After about 100 yds I noticed my rear tire was low but enough air to keep going. Have way up Burbank chain snag [all most over the bars]then down Free fall[ I have done this so many times I did not lower my seat] big mistake [I will need the night off dear!]
      down the 3 bitches no real problems, then down the new single track [hard packed big ruts] no fun really
      then the detour at the bottom of the switch backs
      it is packed now and a trail being worked in [in a few weeks this will be fun] through Bear Junction up to the Grand Cyn [the old creek trail] up up up to the road then out and up up up again and over to The Witch. droped down in to the trail [it is over grown] then the sand at the bottom. the climb up was very diffrent this time after the rains there is a few new canyons [and I do mean canyons]and everything looked diffrent [not just the fire and the rain?]went by the Clance trail it has weeds 3 feet tall. when I reached the Y the trail looked like it had been plowed but no tractor tracks around? up that trail aways there is a new canyon it is passable but you will walk it, over to were the garage use to be
      down the walk way [ I had this feeling that I was not welcome ] the trail was in bad shape and everything was dead no new growth? then I had to stop!!!!
      there is a BIG CANYON were the old bridge was! I just sat there looking at everything for a few minutes, thinking of the way it use to be.
      On the way down I went on the flying W trail [major growth and not rideable] then the steep single track that only Shocktower and I would do samething overgrown. I just cruzed down the cement block is exposed more then ever [almost over the bars again] then I almost missed the turn and I was going slow [ I know that is hard to beleive]once back in the canyon everything was back to normal I past Pain freak [he was going the other direction] with the group from Coates. I even made it all the way up the middle trail [AKA upper shearwood forest] then up past the gate [AKA yellow gate years ago it was yellow]then down Colbalt.
      Great day for a ride.

    • Trail UpdateHey Brent-I went over Tuesday night after work and I'm not kidding I watched over 50 engines come through.There were trucks from everywhere in CA.Ventura,Fillmore,Santa Paula and even more from further away.Yeah,I know what you mean about losing a friend here.I watched as it was heading toward Claremont wilderness.A park ranger said they were going to make a stand at the park and not let it burn if at all possible.I stayed for over an hour and watched.I went by again this evening (Thursday),but really couldn't see very far up.As far as I could see it looked like everything was still okay.I was told the lower part of Marshall is also fine,but they started backfires and that took a lot of the stuff above it.I don't know about the house though.We will have to get together soon and do a ride through anything thats left open.

    • Trail UpdateOther Trails Up There-If you ride up there enough and you try out most of the trails up there, you can take a trail up to that leads up to that trail which you can see from almost anywhere. You basically have to hike-a-bike up to the top of the mountain and ride sunset ridge all the way down to the gated community, follow the main road down to the gates and you're right at golden hills and wheeler.

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch Trail-We went down this trail Saturday and it was pretty fun. There was a party going on at the ranch by the dirt road and you could smell some GOOOOOD BBQ. I like the trail except the horse crap really kind of blew it. We started off at about 8:00 PM so it was pretty exciting. We had our lights and stuff... we were kind of skeptical at parking at the dirl lot (it said it was for equestrian area or sumthin) but we parked there and we saw the LA County multi-purpose sign. It was a FUNNN trail, come down if you have time... ill be going this weekend again. SOMEONE, CLEAN THE HORSE CRAP... ESPECIALLY WHEN I WAS WALKING MY BIKE UP THE LAST HILL, I STEPPED ON TWO PEACES OF HORSE STUFF!!! BUT THE BBQ at the RANCH DID SMELL GOOD. I WANTED TO INVITE MYSELF THERE!!!

    • Trail UpdateGirls Love Dirt-Cynthia, Liz and I rode up to the house on Saturday afternoon. A bit of an interesting start with the three of us getting "attention" from the boys in the probation camp. The directions were a bit confusing here and there so we took a couple of wrong turns which we had to backtrack. We made it up to the house and thought the little girl's dress hanging from the upstairs window was a bit creepy. We took the tour through the house and we wished that it was in the same condition as it was described in earlier entries from a year ago. There were no chandeliers or blair witch symbols or a VW bug. We did find the piano (in the back house), but it was so vandalized you can't play it. We saw someone's wedding photo and saw some recent letters (?) tossed about. The upstairs was a bit spooky at first since the wind was blowing and the doors were moving. Then we found the basement and saw the old refrigerator. We opened the door and found a dead body...just kidding...You didn't think we'd be dumb enough to actually open it, did you? :) It's a bit sad to think that this house must have been rather beautiful at one time before people vandalized it. It was a bit hard to figure out where these other trails were that you guys take after getting to the house so this ended up being a short ride. As a side note, it's pretty funny when you take someone (Liz) up this trail and you don't let them know in advance that there's a spooky house to explore at the end of the house. Hey...did anyone else notice that if you look closely at the picture of the house, it looks like there is a person standing on the back patio?

    • Trail UpdateThe Night Witch-Rode there last night with Flying dub and Andy.
      What a night ride, on the way up there was two riders coming down through Marshall.
      The weather was on the cool side but not too cold, with almost a full moon! Nice climb up, we enjoyed the view at the house!
      Then we saw some lights that we could not explain that were down in the canyon.
      On the way down Flyingdub heard what he thought sounded like water running? There was no water in that area of the canyon, then Andy seen the eyes in the bushes?
      I believe the Blair Witch was watching!
      By the way on the way up I lost a brake pad so I rode all the way down with only a front brake.

    • Trail UpdateC'mon, I can't be the only one riding this trail lately! Pete and I hooked up on Friday night (2-22-02) for a night ride, my first ever. Started at the bottom of Marshall Canyon and 15 minutes into the Canyon I broke my chain. Too much brute strength? (No you moron, learn how to shift!) Thanks, Pete, for the spare pin. After that we made good progress up to the fire road, left at the road that leads to the heliport. Continued west down the ST just past the heliport, right at the first "Y", right at the next "Y" and on up to the Witch!
      I swear I saw a light in one of the windows (O.K. I was spooked!) After rapping for a few minutes there we continued up the road another 300 yards or so to the end. This is "THE" view. What a night! Back down the road & the short ST to the heliport, this time staying to the right, west of the fire camp, down to the graded parking lot, down that steepish ST to the junction, left and over to the roller coaster, down that and up to the water tanks. Continued on up the "Pasture" to the ST and Southwest down through the rest of Marshall Canyon. I'm hooked! Thanks again Pete for a great ride. I highly recommend this ride to all.

    • Trail UpdateTook advantage of Presidents Day and tooled up Marshall Canyon from the bottom. A little moist today ,as a result of yesterdays showers, with a half dozen or so puddles in the trail. It's good to see that all the MTB'ers are avoiding these, 'wish I could say the same for the equestrians!
      Anyway, headed west at the Fire Road at the top of Marshall and over to the Blair Witch. It's not as spookey in the daytime (night ride anyone?) Ventured up the road past the house just to see what was up there. Yippee! The "bad boys" at the Prison/Fire Camp have cleared the ridge back down to the heliport. Great downhill for those interested. I had to walk the portion about mid-way down 'cuz I'm "Sissy-Boy." To make it interesting, take a left down the first "cleared" trail and this empties you out of the canyon at the top of the heliport. Great traction down Marshall and out!

    • Trail UpdateBLAIR WITCH-Rode there today its been a long time and the witch reminded me on the Turkey ride with a flat tire.
      I was just above the house,this is the closest I have been in months!
      The trail has been cleared and is easy to find, also there is NO sign!!!!!!
      The house is trashed pretty bad,I would guess it is from the gangs that go up there [what do you think Chris?]
      The weather was great not to hot and not to cool.
      We started at Mills and went up Colbalt past the gate, down the three B's and the switch back, through Bear juction down Roller Coaster then over to Prision camp,up to the Blair Witch house then back down.
      up the dirt road, we went up Upper Shearwood Forest [the middle trail] past the gate[use to be yellow years ago]then down Cobalt.
      Great workout with Mr You

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch House-Well I found it, finally. In the strict sense, it's simply an abandon house. If it were in the city no body would pay much attention, but it's out of the way location is unique. I didn't notice any "Trail Closed" signs on the route I took. I also didn't enter the house or go beyond the out building that is pretty well trashed. I'm more curious as to its history. I will try to get some info on it. The directions are good enough to get you there. (Thanks Mr. Bonk)

    • Trail UpdateMr Bonk,I guess you had no choice but to post the picture. I do recall that I was a non-believer until I pleaded with you for two weeks not to touch anything in the house and tell you where the Piano was and the stick people were located just to prove that I went there,The first time I went scared the heck out of me because you also made me promise to go by myself,which I did on a rainy April evening.I should have known you had a good reason.You are the Man !!!!

    • Trail UpdateYeah!... What He Said!-Right on Mr. Bonk. Most equestrians dont have a problem with us so long as we are courteous to them and visa-versa. Although, There are just as many A-holio's on bikes as there are on horseback. Being an equestrian myself, I have been stormed by would-be velo-attackers in the area before, but forgave them "for they know not what they do". Question: Would he be pissed if I took a few of my friends on Morgan horses up the trail to the top? I think not. So, we have a double standard, NO?
      I believe you are correct in that the county maintains the trail up to the house. This would lead me to believe that this were not private property and is an open trail. Last time I went to the house, I had'nt seen much change. A few things had been moved around. People who do visit the house though, should consider it a privilage and leave things where they found them. Theres not alot of places that we can ride where we can actually go see something. Oh! and by the way! we all know there's another way up to the house anyway!

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch Trail-Just a little response to the Testy one [you know who you are]
      1 How do we know who you are?
      2 If you do own the property clean it up dude!!!
      3 The tax payers mantain the trail going to the house.
      That is how I found the trail and yes I do pay taxes.
      4 Everyone I have meet on this trail has been more then frendly.[horse back rides,hikers,mtn bikers]
      I think you just hate life in genral.
      If I viewed every horse back rider to have the same frame of mind I would hate them all!!!. But I don't you are one of two that I have run in to in the last 15 years I have been riding in this area.
      The last one was about 5 years ago and I think he was just having a bad day. [we all have had one]
      5 If you want to ride your horse in my back yard come on over!!! I even have a horse trail that lines my back yard!
      SO JUST SHARE THE TRAIL AND ENJOY LIFE IT'S WAY TO SHORT!!!!!!!

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch House Trail-Wow! A little testy about a few mountain bikers riding on your land. Although it seems obvious that you really dont care about the place. If it was anything but an abandoned house, I could see the problem. To tell you the truth, if you do own that house it should be taken away from you anyway. I cant believe you would even mention the fire danger when the house and the surrounding land is just a fire waiting to happen. Perhaps you should be happy that someone(bikers,hikers, horseman) are up there keeping an eye out for fire. If this is the condition you keep your backyard as you call it, Id hate to see your house.

      Posted:09/03/2001

    • Trail UpdateTHIS IS PRIVATE PROPERTY-As the signs states, "Private Property-No Trespassing", is EXACTLY what that means. All the proper authorities have been notified of the problem of bikers trespassing on the property and with the extreme fire danger, they will be called! Posting on the web to "just go around the signs" will not be tolerated. All property west of the heliport and north of Stephens Ranch Road is PRIVATE. Going inside someones house even if is is vacate is criminal trespassing. I do not ride my horses in your backyard, so don't ride your bikes in mine

      Posted:09/01/2001

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch/O RIGHTY THEN-WOW! just go on past the NO TRESSPASSING sign and "have a good time". With this trail being in such close proximity to all the other trails the rest of us non-trespassers ride, I don't think that attitude will help our image. Why fan the flames?

    • Trail UpdateThe trail was short and sweet, i'd say about 4miles total. I went with a friend and got lost, thus extending our little venture to about 10 or 11 miles, but hey the witch is supposed to mess with your mind, right! The piano is not so bad on its own but when you start to play it that's when things get spooky! You need to sit and have lunch at the dinner table to get the full affect of the house, oh and definatly go upstairs to the kids room with all the little shoes and clothes!!! I'm glad i went with a friend! Do the trail have a great time, pay very close attention to the directions and you'll be o.k.

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch Trail-What in wide world is this? A spooky adventure and a decent trail (short). This was my first time on this trail and I have a problem with the instructions. Everything was fairly detailed except for the first two, three Y's in the road. It starts with the first Y in the road, this is correct, but the second step of staying to the right and down the hill is confusing. You dont really have a choice there. The road to the left is so overgrown you miss the fact that you have made a right down the hill causing you to make a right at the third Y. I did make the the wrong turn but before I found my error I found the most intresting set of downhill trails (steep and with big air). The house is very freaky, people just dont leave that much sh*t behind. Does anyone know the story behind the it? O ya and the trespassing sign, Well lets just say that I never saw it. If anything, Its like a neighborhood whatch sign. Maybe the witch put it there.

      Was it because we did not go all the way to the house?

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch News Flash:-Star Date 4-3-01: Star Trek Crash landed on Blair Witch, No Injery's' Only his Pride was Bruised. On an evening ride, Star Trek & Freind made it to the house: No problem, Explored the house; No problem, when they left the trail to crossover the Wood Bridge on there way out Srar Trek went down like Marty Feldwen: There is a STEP from the trail to the bridge about 8" high. The Blair Witch taped him on the shoulder with her magic wand and he went down on the right side off the trail. 8 feet down into the bushes, still clipped in with the bike on top of him like a turtle on his back. To all who venture on the Blair Witch Trail, if you Fear the witch leave a Peace offering for a safe ride down hill; if you don't Fear the witch you take the chance of a tap on the shoulder by the Magic Wand! A peace offering can be a Power Bar, Gel pack, a Flower, or any thing that a Witch would like. On 3-30-01 Evening ride: Two close call's on the trail. #1 Star Trek & a gentleman on a Specialized almost had a Head on collision: Star Trek going up & Specialized coming down near the top by the house. #2 Myself on the way down; off camber turn hit sand at 20 MPH went sideways an all most bought the farm: All were tap's on the shoulder by the Magic Wand! Use CAUTION on this trail. The road is narrow, not much room: on the way up stay to one side and keep your head up & look for a Down hill rider: on the way down look ahead on the trail & watch your speed & look out for the up hill climber's. If you think you are the only one on the trail Your not. Remember She is watching you on your way up & on your way down, with the Magic Wand in hand looking to tap any Fool who ventures on the trail: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch House Trail-I have been riding in this area for a few years and am surprised I have never found this house before. Trail conditions where great. I didn't have to bushwhack through the single-track section.

      The house is pretty creepy. I was surprised at how recently lived in the house looked. At first I hesitated going in because I was alone. After looking around downstairs I started to head upstairs but then my skirt blew over my head and I left. What a wimp.

      One note: the ride as described is very short. There are plenty of other trails in the area to lengthen the ride.

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch House Trail-Rode up to the house on 3-3. The trail conditions
      were great thanks to the recent rains. We followed
      the directions exactly but I have a few questions.
      The singletrack that we took from the helicopter
      pad left us bushwacking through chaparral rather
      than riding. It fit with the directions but was so
      overgrown that it left us wondering if there isnt a
      better way to go- while still avoiding private
      property. Additionally, how much of the area is
      actually private property? We were following Mr.
      Bonks directions and on the dirt road when we ran
      into an equestrian while on our way down. She
      seemed pretty pissed that we were in the area
      and said that if the owner caught us he would be
      calling the cops. More info on the area would be
      appreciated if availible. Keep an eye out for
      equestrians and take care! Oh yeah, we crossed a
      bridge and the piano is in a room out back.

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch House Trail-This is a good ride. The uphills are steep and great on your legs! We got lost at one point and found another little shed and chicken-wired garden. Once we got back to the main trail, we found the house trail. Nice climb! Pretty spooky when you first see the house. Once we were inside, it didn't seem too scary, but it was mysterious. If I had been alone, I definetly would have been scared! We saw the piano and all the dishes in the cupboards, but did not see any witchcraft signs. We did see alot of rat's nests! After we left the house, we went to our left at the last 'y' and rode to the top to see the view. Very beautiful! Well worth the ride! Will definetly do this one again, but maybe not to the house if alone!

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch House Trail-This ride is not for the Fainthearted, to get to the house you well need the legs & the techical skill to clear rock slide and washout trail, thanks to Mother nature & her storms. Went up Saturday morning 3-3-01 had a great time. Had to stop 8 times to keep my hart in my chest & my lungs from exploding. This is a Spooky trail, moss growing all over the place, poison oak & cactus. Know wonder that Bozo had two flats before he reached the house. The place is a perfect example of a haunted house, broken windows, creaking steps. Alot of rooms to explore, a piano to find, Two Blair Witch symbol & hanging sacrifice. The downhill is worth the climb. FAST!& Dangerous. Don't take nothing from the house or the Blair Witch well Hit you with a flying W on the way down. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Happy Trails to you and yours. Witch Hunter

    • Trail UpdateBlair Witch Trail-Was there for the first time at 1pm on Saturday March 3rd. Trail conditions were outstanding. Tacky and dry and fast. The steep single tracks coming down almost killed me but were a riot to attempt. Crossed a bridge to get to the house. Piano is in a beat-up back house. Kind of spooky. This would make a great night ride!! The directions are good for finding the house.

    • Trail UpdateBLAIR WITCH BABY-Finally rode this trail today and found this damn place. All I have to say is "HOLY SH*T!!!!!!!!!!!!" I don't think that I have ever had the ibby gibbies so bad while riding a bike. And of course, my stupid male butt had to get off of my bike, now keep in mind that I was ALONE, had to get off of my bike and walk through the entire house. That was enough for me! I found the piano, devil warshipping goodies, hanging doll, you name it, holy crap.....I'm getting the goose bumps right now. Don't do that ride by yourself, if you want to do it, I suggest that you go with a couple of other people, it'll make a great conversation. Didn't really take too much time enjoying the singletrack around there, I just really wanted to get the hell out of there!!

      take care,

    • Trail UpdateI've tried to complete this ride twice, and each time I flat as I get close to the house, right at the final fork, left to house & right to top section. Each time I begin to repair my flat tire, I swear the air temp. drops what feels like 5 to 10 degrees...almost instantly upon removing my tire. I get the strangest feeling, like Get The Hell Out. So thats what I do. I've never changed a flat so quickly as I have on these past 2 attempts to get to the house. I"ll try again when my testi's drop back into position. Strange!
