    Last time I was on the Pacifico road...there was a huge washout that took out the whole road. That was about a year ago...maybe they fixed it by now?

    Why don't you start on Upper Big T and head up the Lynx turnout...there is a sign and everything. You will eventually link up with parts of the trail you are familiar with, and then you will know the whole route. :deal The bottom part is not difficult and there may even be a fun water crossing.

    Hey Guys have fun...
    I just got the "Tanker" back from the shop- $250.00 OOUUCCHH!! Please learn from me- USE PROTECTION... not just with women, but on your clutch case cover! H8chains, Artboy & Nick saved my butt from the mishap. Do carry JB weld for the unexpected puncture. I'm booked up the remaining weekends in April. Big Bear Bash is where I am going.


    Cheers,

    Pablo:1drink

    According to the sign at the top of Lynx/start of Pacifico, the Pacifico route is closed from sometime in November (15th?) through, IIRC, May 15th. I may have the dates wrong, but pretty sure on the months.

    On another note, the FS recording for the San Gabriel Canyon (Azusa Cyn) OHV area says that the Rincon Shortcut is supposed to be open again "late spring/early summer". We can only hope.

    I've heard the washout on 3N17 east of Pacifico is fixed but the road is still closed.

    If anyone wants to go a little earlier, we (unrelated group) are meeting at Jays Shell in La Canada at 6:30 am and rding Upper Big T to Lynx to Pacifico if it is open. Two XR650Rs and a DRZ400. If you see us on the trail, stop us and say hi.

    Met all the FFs at the old and new again meeting place. The morning started well, someone tipped us off about the CHP in Little T. We started easy and we eventually run onto him as law abiding citizens. :lol3


    We're back again at the usual meeting place....the 7-11 adjacent to Osbourne.
