Our driver did everything he could to accommodate us. He was a good driver and never made anyone second guess our trip up (I have been in some sketchy shuttles). The riding on mt. Lowe and dark side is amazing.

A hop and a skip away, the trails are so close. First time. Moderate hike, constant incline. Probably takes 2- 3 hours to make it to the top. Well maintained trails by rangers. Pano views of La Canada to the IE.

From start to finish this is a friendly, professional team. The service is great, the advice is spot on and the ride up is almost as fun as the ride down. Highly recommend! And, you're never too old... I just turned 67!

Most people think of shuttling as a way of "cheating" so you don't need to climb, but for those of us that love to climb, shuttles are still a vital part of the riding experience. The ability to be dropped off deep in the mountains...More
