    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.

    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.

    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.

    well if anyone would like to ride tomorrow and show me some good trails or open roads around the Trabuco area i would greatly appreciate it. I have ridden dirt before, just a new bike and area for me, so you wont have to lag around for me. Riding up and down to holy jim is getting boring, although they finally regraded the road and you do about 80 on it.

    Tore that sheeit up today. Went in Maple Springs came out Blue Jay..... Besides almost getting run off the cliff by a douche in a jeep patriot, that was the most fun I have had in awhile. That was awesome, I completely understand wanting to do night rides now. It wasn't challenging enough, but the views were great.

    Need to do some rejetting I believe.

    I wish that place didn't need street plates! the teaser is that my dirt bike will be in the back of the truck...
