    Nice ride Bob!

    I bet it's even better in the spring when the grass gets green.

    Sunday was some trails that we rode the week before. After we split up, I thought it would be easy to retrace last weeks trail. WRONG. The rain started the grass growing, covering the trail. All cowtracks looked like the trail but would lead us the wrong way....:eek1

    The only pic I took

    what a nice rr and looks like some nice trails too. I can see why you would not want some huge bikes up there shredding up the single track,hopefully most people respect the hard work it takes to keep em in shape.perry i got to take you up for that ride. adam

    I have a ktm 690 and would not try to ride the trails in the area
    On it... the trails all have spots that would be hard on a big bike


    Adv is full of peeps that own big poser dirt bikes
    and they are good for dirt roads not .... single track

    You can ride these trails all year, no need to wait for spring. :D
    Have been up there a gizillion times. Some of the best riding in SoCal! IMHO
    Damon with Team DualDogs puts on a nice event up there every year!
