The Alp Duez of Santa Clarita! The ride up to Camp 9 is not for the light at heart! In my opinion it’s the hardest climb in all of the road rides in Santa Clarita.It is a straight climb up from Sand Canyon Rd. to Bear Divide and if that isn’t enough you climb some more, 4 miles to be exact, to Camp 9. Once up on the top you get a true 360 degree view from Santa Clarita over to San Fernando Valley and quite a view up the 210 as far as the eye can take you. The views make the brutal climb worth it!

There is a fire station up here, hence the name, Camp 9.  Helicopter pads so they can reach any fire in minutes.

The decent is like going down a roller coaster and not knowing when the end is coming. Very enjoyable!
