- Trail UpdateOak Spring Trail-Oak Spring Trail goes steeply up to the Yerba Buena
fire road from the south and from the north.
The north side is about as steep a sustained climb as
I've ever been on. While only 2.3 miles, I made many
stops, usually leaning on my handlebars and panting
The trail looks like a singletrack widened by a bobcat at
some point. It is fairly wide, with no brush in the way.
The surface is mostly dirt, but waterbars and some
rocks add to the challenge.
It is a fun downhill on the return, steep but not terribly
exposed. There are ways to avoid the uphill by biking up
the Yerba Buena Fireroad from closer to the entrance of
Little Tujunga Canyon
