Socal - Los Angeles County - San Pedro NickNames: #RoyalPalmsDualSlalom white point, orlando's
110 Harbor fwy South from I-405 in Carson CA, to end. Left on Gaffey, Right on 1st St or 9th St, Left on Western (213) several miles to shopping center at 25th St. Continue down the hill (ocean view) and park near the apt's at the bottom of the hill on the right. If no parking, continue and turn left and park at or in front of the park overlooking the ocean. Trails are in the big open area across from the apt's and up from the beach. White Point Park. An old military site. Thomas Guide page: 853
You will see a trail up the hill across from the apt's. The trail goes past a downed fence, and continues into a field that slopes downhill to your right and the ocean. You may cross a trail - continue and you cross the course. Turn left and walk up. If you hit the paved road you went too far. Pick a course and go for it!
Watch out on the jumps. Some are designed to be funky to develop skills, and some are tough even with skills and a good bike. BMX kids also thrash 'em sometimes. Just go around them and rejoin the course if you have to. Modifying or grooming the course is frowned upon. Harder makes you better, faster. If you bust the slalom poles out, put them back, or pick a new one - they are these wierd bamboo-like weed stalks growing all over. Course crosses the pavement twice and ends at the bottom in the field. Push back up and do the other course, repeat, repeat, repeat!
There are also some 'DH training courses' here (ST), and some dirt jumps. Lots of pedalling.
*Thanks and kudos to Orlando for the 3 years of continuous effort it has taken to get this place to be a true DS!
