I don't mean to barge in or anything but where are you guys talking about? Somwhere between I15 and I5 in the mtns? I thought all of that was off limits now a days. I'll probably either be at the track in Elsinore or maybe trail riding in Lake Morena.
Lake Morena is a OHV area out on I8 East of San Diego. It's just a little ways past Pine Valley if you look on a map in the Mtns. It's basically up on top and over looks The Desert. You Exit on Buckman Springs rd. and head south about a mile or 2 and then you'll see signs for the park. I went out there a couple weeks ago for the first time and definately plan on going back.
Well, I've only been there once a couple of weeks ago. It's defanately a legal area. It's designated an OHV park. We rode for a couple of hours and it was fun. The stuff we were on was mtn. trails. Fire roads that conected to jeep trails and some single track stuff. No real jumps. There was a camping area and the trails lead right up to a lake to fish on. It was not crowded at all and the weather was perfect. I would suspect that it could get pretty warm up there but that's true at almost any of the riding areas in SoCal. I'm planning on riding somewhere on Sunday but havn't made up my mind as to where yet. If people are interested in meeting up there I'll go. Like I said though, I'm not an expert on the area and it would be as much of you exploring the area as me. If I don't go there, I'll probably end up at the Elsinore track unless I here of something else going on. My bike is Green stickered and I'd be interested in riding anywhere with in an hour and a half of North San Diego. I'll keep my eyes on this thread to see what developes. Let me know if your interested in going up to Lake Morena. I'd be happy to meet you guys there, I'm always looking to meet new riders.
That sounds great! Unless my wife disaproves I'd like to ride Lake Morena Sunday morning. We're doing the Father's day thing on Saturday this year. Would you be up for getting there as early as possible? I'm also green stickered and I don't want to spend more than 1/2 a day riding. Elsinore is just about the same distance for me but I'd rather do Morena. Let me know and we'll meet up somewhere.
Crap, I forgot about the fathers day thing!! I think I'm supposed to meet my parents for breakfast. I can try to make that as early as possible and get up there. Let me talk with them this evening and see what their plans are. what part of SD are you in? I live up in Ramona and the plans were to meet my parents for breakfast in Poway Sunday morning. I'll work on that though. I'll post a reply tomorrow and let you know what I can do. I ususally try to get out as early as possible but this may be one day that I can't do it.
That looks like about a 2 hour drive. How far off of the 15 is it? It takes my less than an hour to get to Temecula. Is it pretty good riding there? Sounds like a lot of fun. I think you mentioned it was more sight seeing than anything.
where do you get off at on the Cajon Pass, off oak hill? i'm curious about that area as i see people out there while i go up the hill to visit my parents in victorville. would like some info on directions to riding areas, what exit to take and where to go from there.
Exit the 15 North at 138 (just past the truck scales). Just along the on ramp for the 15 north there is a small dirt road. So From the 15 N exit go across 138 like you are getting back on the freeway. Just as you come to the ramp move to the right and you will see the access road. Take that road until you come to the 2nd railroad bridge. Stage there and continue up the road on your bikes.
The trail will take you under the freeway and up the mtns. toward Phelan. I think its about 15 miles round trip.
The only bad thing is oncoming traffic. You really need to pay attention. The trail runs along the ridges so if you happen to fall off the trail it could be along way down.
