Good to hear no damn Adv pass needed
Adv pass is only for parking. We all pay State and Federal use taxes every year as good law abiding citizens......... However, the Supreme court found the ADV pass to be against the law a year or so ago.

Here is the link to closure reports but everyone says they only update it like once a decade. We had some good rain for 3 days this past weekend in Trabuco.

Any frequent riders know how quickly they might get this open?

I would for sure go Friday morn if they open up.

okay, I'll check the message board for responses since I'm aware that the state's website isn't up to date

where do you enter these trails?

are these the fire roads that you enter from silverado or the trails south of ortega?

I want to checkout the fire roads that you can drive up...

thumpthis - unfortunately neither of my dirt bikes are road legal, and I'm just going to peruse up the fire roads with my truck

I will be checking the gates, will report back later.

Where are you coming from?
Ortaga side you can go south side of 74 toward wildomar via S Main divide or north side of 74 via N Main divide.
North will take you to peak.
If coming from OC take Maple Springs road.

Wildomar

How do wildomar and south divide compare to heading up maple springs? I have not ridden any of them, but live close to Silverado and want to get to the peak. Are the first two worth it if silverado is still closed tomorrow?

thanks for checking, I greatly appreciate it!

I'm coming from Long Beach, so the maple springs road way is preferred for me

thump - if you want to do some elementary exploring, and don't mind waiting for me every now and then, let's meet up on Friday morning and check it out from the Silverado side

I'll drive behind, but just FYI, I only have a 2wd truck with all season tires

South MD is asphalt, Wildomar OHV I'm assuming you're referring to? It's ok for beginners I guess. Its pretty small, but still kinda fun to hit up if your just passing through. I would not trailer a bike up there to ride.

Sorry, I totally misunderstood the question. I don't know where Silverado is so I can't help ya.

Cool2 Gate report

MS gate is closed, only bypass or limbo. No cages.

Fat Nelly and I got lost on the south side of Trabuco creek came to a section we could not make (trail washed out) was a real workout fun fun fun...

...didn't make it to the Ortaga side but most likely closed as well, will check again tomorrow.

South side trabuco creek? are you talking the area near the road going up to holy jim??? that would be my back yardish, I live up rose canyon rd where the Cantina is.

There are trails there that are fun?? The only thing I know of is a turn off to left 1/3 the way to holy jim that goes straight up towards the peak. doubt it is very navigable right now. Hopefully they open the damn gates tomorrow.
