Overview

 
Webb Singletrack Jump
 




Webb Canyon has been a local favorite for three decades of riding. It has seen many changes just as the sport of mountain biking has. Webb isn't a single trail anymore but a series of downhill runs intermixed with jumps and (vandals permiting) wooden stunts. I would suggest for the a riders first visit to the area to take the option 1 parking area and hike the various routes that descend Webb. For most riders Webb is a shuttling downhill run. People usually park at the option 2 site and head over to the canyon. The Webb trail system can be linked with Johnson's Pasture and the Wilderness Loop. In this the spring this is area is covered in beautiful green wavy grass.

Trail Description

From the option 2 parking area ride up through the No Hunting sign gate. Go straight along the road, stay straight at the first three intersections with other fireroads. After the third there is a short climbing singletrack on the rightside of the road. Go up this single track and gain the ridge road. This is the starting point to Webb. First timers should stay on the road and avoid doing the little side routes that loop back onto the road. After quarter mile the road turns to the right, stay to the right not taking the dirt road on the left. Head down the road a short distance to two electrical towers, one on each side of the road. The real Webb singletrack begins at the left side tower. From here there are many options that appear along the trail. The trail splits at various points. There is also a lot of jumps and stunts but the trail always bypasses all such objects. Once down through the singletracks you reach a fireroad that lines Webb Canyon School. Turn downhill, left, onto this road and continue to the oak grove with a trail running into it on the right. Take this trail to a church and head out the gate to the option 1 parking area.

Getting There

 
Church Trailhead
 

Take the 210 Freeway to the Towne Ave. exit in Claremont. Turn north onto Towne, the mountains are north at this point, and drive to Baseline Ave.

Option 1: Go straight to the end of Towne, less then a quarter mile and park along the road outside the church gates.

Option 2: Turn right onto Baseline and head east to the first light, Mountain Ave. Turn right or north onto Mountain and take it to its end passing through nice hillside homes. At the end of Mountain turn right at the last street and drive to it's end and park in front of the houses.

When to Bike

You can ride Webb Canyon year round, the only closures are dur to wildfire which happen a couple of times a decade.
