Distance: 26 miles and 1100 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)
The Easy Short is somewhat similar to the Hilly Short, but cuts off most of the climbing. They start together, but this easy short skips the climb up to San Dimas Canyon. It then rides over to Puddingstone Reservoir, but it skips the climbing after the reservoir and up Grand. It eventually rejoins the return of the hilly short for the trip back to Claremont. As you can see by the profile, the only major climb is the gradual grade on the return back up to Claremont. On the map below, the blue indicates the common route with the hilly short route and the pink indicates the unique portions of the easy short.
