A graduate of Ohio State University, Jim Cicchese obtained his real estate license in 1988 and currently works as a realtor for Keller Williams Realty Westlake Village in California. When not engaged in the buying and selling of real estate, Jim Cicchese enjoys mountain biking, especially in Cheseboro Canyon.
Also known as Cheeseboro Canyon, Cheseboro Canyon is suitable for all levels of mountain bikers. Situated in Southern California’s Agoura Hills in the northern section of the Santa Monica Mountains, its network of trails that run throughout the canyon were used in the 18th century by cattle ranchers.
Today the area offers riders stunning scenery along grasslands found near the main roads. Further inland are single-track trails, which are suitable for more advanced riders. Recent additions of land parcels on the eastern and northern sections provide more technical riding options.
Riders wanting to trek through the eight-mile trail should start at the dirt parking lot at the end of Cheseboro Road, as the ideal route goes clockwise from there. A map station is located across the parking lot for those not familiar with the area. Since it is a popular area, riders should remain cautious when traveling through the canyon. Equestrians use the trails often, so all users should be respectful of each other.
