Del Sur Ridge, located in the Angeles National Forest near Santa Clarita is rough dirt and gravel with several washed-out areas. The main trail is fairly easy and can be done in 2WD. High clearance is recommended on account of the washed-out sections, which often change drastically after rains. 

There are several moderately challenging optional offshoots that require 4WD. The offshoots all lead back to the main trail, which makes this a good trail for both beginner and intermediate skill levels that might be traveling together. With a max elevation of 3,600 feet, it’s worth using the frequent turnouts to admire the views of the surrounding hills and valleys.  

While you can run Del Sur Ridge out and back, most people use 6N19 as a loop back to Bouquet Canyon, the main road. Del Sur Ridge ends at a locked gate. The trail's end does have nice views of Bouquet Reservoir.

There is no camping on the trail.
