INTRO

Warning - this climb is mostly gravel and we have not tested it, but will summer 2021.  Until then, Ed Burnett, San Diego advises:  "
Ed Burnett - John Johnson - the first two miles via Chaney Trail are paved. Mt. Lowe Motorway is dirt next five miles to Mt. Wilson Rd. The dirt is not bad, but there's a few minor rocky parts. It would be fine on a gravel bike set up with wider tires. It's kind of a coin toss on 30mm tubeless. I personally wouldn't do it on a road bike. I added three more photos to this ride so you can get a generally idea of the surface. But there are sections with more rocks than in my photos. This road skirts Mt. Lowe, you have to jump on a short but steep singletrack to get to the peak. MTB only as far as I know, but I haven't gone up there."
