Ballinger Ride!

Boy, it's been quiet around here... (chirping crickets) With this spring weather in winter - we gotta ride! :) Since USFS Frazier trails are closed, Nitro and I are thinking of heading over to Ballinger for a day ride. Right now we're leaning toward Friday, February 10th. Idea would be to stage at t...

Re: Cal City

Great Vids John!! :ride: ...felt like I was actually there! :eek: I really enjoyed spending the day in CalCity, anytime I've ever been before was just passing through. This time got to stick around and explore some great areas - that single track along that fence line... and the hill climbs, made fo...

Plan is to haul the bike up and show up around 0900 hours at the parking area at the south end of Pipeline Road. Its the first right turn after the south entrance s...

Ride Sunday the 14th

Yeah, I know - bit of a late notice... Nitro and I are planning a quick ride up at HV tomorrow. Not an all-day event maybe half-a-day - though I've said that before and got home in the dark. :lol: Plan is to meet at 0900 hours tomorrow the 14th. We'll meet at the parking area at the south end of Pip...

Re: Ride Saturday the 6th

I guess I should post up and let everyone know that the ride went off (almost) without a hitch. Great trails and only 2-cars in the campground... I don't think we saw anyone on the trails! Still learning all of Ballinger's routes but got lots of distance (about half the park) with plenty more to see...

Re: Ride Saturday the 6th

Hi Nuri- Great to hear you're checking out the site! Ballinger is probably about 1.5 hours or so from Santa Clarita (chime in if I blew the time estimate guys). That would be the route over the Grapevine to Hwy166 to Hwy33 etc. There is only one road in to Ballinger and we usually meet at the campgr...

Our route took us down Miller Jeep Trail to Frazier Park for lunch then Frazier Lookout Road to Long Dave Trail, Gold Hill Trail then a bit o' messin' around on some newly discovered trails in HV. 64 miles and some fun and...

Re: Ride Saturday the 28th

Hey Nitro- Good deal - how about meeting at 0900 hours tomorrow. Since some folks don't like meeting at Lane Ranch due to heavy traffic/noise/kooks, how about we meet at the parking area at the south end of Pipeline Road? Its the first right turn after the south entrance station [/u]. You'll see a l...

A few of us are planning a ride this Saturday the 28th, possibly out via Miller Jeep Trail and back along Gold Hill or Tejon or...? Maybe a nice lunch break in Frazier Park at the half way point. C'mon dudes - let's ride! :ride:

Re: NIGHT RIDE at Gorman

Hey Dudes-

I've been getting a lot of backpack trips in this spring so that's taken me out of the moto game lately but there's been a change in plans for this weekend's b-pack trip... So, I'm in for a night ride this Friday!

Let's ride!! :ride:

Re: MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND RIDE

Hey Nitro - I was up at HV on Friday and met exactly 0 folks on the trail... weather was absolutely amazing too, the planets were truly aligned for a banner day like that! Anyway, I saw that Tejon Trail, Arrastra Trail (sp?) and Gold Hill Trail were still locked up. :down: I can't imagine they'll be...
