    i had done that trail (those trails) earlier this year when i had first moved here.
    surprised not all you FF's haven't ridden that.
    it's fun, but like you said, Little T is the only way in and out.
    some of those trails might or might not be motor vehicle legal.
    i had a hiker lady yell at me that i was not supposed to be on it.
    it was near a UCLA medical building.
    there are ways down to the 210 or the 14 from there on some single track for the more adventurous.
    i'd be down to make this sunday CHURCH ride there if you weekend(saturday) FF's don't.
    there are some other trails off Little T i would like to explore.....:thumb

    there were more wrecks in front than at the back. the FFs won't even take pictures of their dead bikes.....:ken , i think yzlvr has some pics but hasn't posted any.

    marty, the first part of the video was funny. you passed sergio with your 950 and hauled ass, and when you got to scd, the xt225 was still on your tail.....:rofl

    He grew up in Quartz Hill. His uncle had a place out on 140th in Bean. Got to ride with him a few times up there(I grew up in Rosamond). When he first got his OW 39 or whatever they called it, there wasn't a hill he couldn't climb. Shreaded the rear tire in two days. When I first started riding up there around '77, I couldn't even make it a lap around some of the tracks he built to practice on. Those were the days of the real natural terrain mx tracks.

    If you were on the trail that headed north (from 3N17 past the parking area) toward Placerita Canyon and turned to single track, that one looks like a hiking trail on the Tom Harrison map, but the fireroads were legal according to the map -- and lack of gates or signs.

    Has anyone checked out the fire roads/trails around Kagel Mountain Rd? I went up there a couple years ago with a friend who showed me a launching area for a hang gliding club; they said they meet there most weekends and own a grassy place to land in the foothills below . . .

    Fell walking across the ice trying to get a better shot and get out of the way. My bike did hit the ground but I had run out of storage on my SD Card.
