Column: Get your kicks at new Rancho Cucamonga park

Friday’s column (read it here) is about the dedication of the Route 66 Trailhead in Rancho Cucamonga near the new-ish bridge over Foothill Boulevard. Incidentally, despite what I wrote, it’s not officially a park, as I learned after deadline, but to us laypeople that’s a better generic noun than “trailhead” (or is it? I might be wrong). Also, I plug an event in Pomona on Sunday, for which tickets must be purchased Friday. I bought mine this morning at Frantz Cleaners.

    Barbecue, Palomares Adobe and Frantz Cleaners — the perfect trifecta of an Inland Empire weekend! Zorro is the icing on el pastel.

  • A trailhead sounds like a place out in the middle of nowhere where you eat gorp & lurp and run the risk of running into poison ivy.

    [It doesn’t sound like a place a quarter-mile from an Albertsons? No, I guess not. — DA]

    I have gone by Palomares adobe quite a few times on my bike. It’s only 2 blocks from my house, but it has never been open. doh!

    I went by the trailhead tonight (albeit at 11:30 at night on bicycle) and that was quite an interesting stop. thanks for the heads up.

    [You’re welcome. The adobe does have regular hours, by the way. — DA]
