Ken Burton Loop

The Ken Burton Loop is a relatively easy climb followed by a dangerous cliff edge descent ending with the Gabrielino Trail in the canyon bottom back to JPL. This ride is for advanced riders only due to the remote area and great chance of serious injury (or death) if one makes a wrong move.
