    I went for a ride today up 1N09 (Old city creek rd) starting at 330 headed up to big bear via dirt... Had no clue there was a fire!

    It is massive, crappy phone pics dont do it justice. Really sucks! I could see the flames though it doesnt show up. Got these halfway up Radford Camp Rd:

    Hopefully it won't close down all the good roads on the south side of Big Bear for good.

    I got to the top of Radford Camp Rd and the f#*king gate was locked, with me on the wrong side of it and it is on side of mtn so no way around. N04 to 38 was shut and I needed gas planning to fill up in Big Bear. Went back down and then ascended Clarks Grade only to find myself locked in again at the top at intersection with 2N10, but was able to ride around it.

    Fingers crossed the fire will be contained and gates will be opened shortly. I was really stressed as I didnt have enough fuel to ride back the whole way to 330 and then into Highland (it is 32 mile of unimproved fire roads back to 330 from there), and who knows if the gate would be closed there too. It was open 3 hrs prior when I entered oblivious to the fire, but no idea if you can still ride 1N09 (Old City Creek) as I came back to LA via 138 to the Crest.

    You can physically ride around the gate at 1N54 (Clarks Grade)/2N10, but obviously that is probably not a good idea unless you find yourself trapped on the other side. :lol3

    I uploaded a phone video to photo bucket and you can see the helicopters (size of insects) flying into the fire. I can't get mobile uploads to do full resolution, but it gives different perspective than just pics. Have to click link to see as I don't know how to embed video from photobucket like you can from youtube.

    For future reference, there is fuel in angelus oaks. You can take middle control road up from 1n09 (where it dumps into Glass road) to the 38. It dumps you out about a block from the gas station/general store.
