funny... that is exactly the conclusion that we came to. As I was perched on a rock like a lizard catching my breath after lowering my buddies 630 down ANOTHER 6'+ ledge, I noticed a plaque on the ground that was formerly epoxied to said ledge. On that plaque it read:



There are a bunch of much better pictures (not mine) of the trail here: http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=997126

aww come on! My buddy is 250lbs on a 340lb (630) bike and I'm 235lbs on a 320lb bike (690) and I've got 2 false hips to boot! These 2 trails are only ~1mile (and ~1 hour ) each from start to finish.

Since we will be camping for 4 days (16-19), I'd like to do a big family (and truck/jeep/buggy) friendly ride out to the Trona Pinnacles for lunch (packed) on saturday, just a ~40 mile easy, but whooped, loop. Anyone care to join?

We took the rhino out there last April, some whoops and actually kind of torn up. There's a few offshoots that head up towards Charlie's place that have like massive 5 foot whoops. Thinking they've been testing trophy trucks out there. I've never seen whoops so by and deep like that.

we found that trail back when i rode with the TT guys 4-5 yrs ago! always thought it was one of ur secret trails, used to be a banner right after the tree root/rock to direct you, now we need to continue it after it crests @ the road, cause that rode SUCKS to ride back down or up
THAT was the hill that made me change to evans coolant! NEVER boiled over AGAIN
I have ridden down a couple of those drainages over the years from up top, figuring there had to be an outlet. Always got turned back by water fall type section. Guess i didn't try hard enough.

The kid on the Honda having a bit less trouble than my son is one hell of a rider. He's a consistent top five overall finisher at District 37 Hare and Hounds.
Thanks Mutt for sharing those vids.

Just a No.Cal lurker planning a Johnson Valley trip after Christmas. Looking for cool trails. We've been riding Jawbone, Dove Springs, El Pasos, Spangler, Rands, Fremonts, and Cal.City area for years. Decided we better ride JV while we still can. Any JV clues would be appreciated. That darn Riceless slipped away while we were planning a ride with him!

Let's Ride!

One of my ride buddies is hosting a ride in JV using his D37 Hare & Hound Race course tracks. Should be a good time. Great course.

Bikes only... Aggressive Novice to Intermediate desert and rock garden riders minimum please.

Post up if you are interested. More details HERE - Sorry for the redirect but that's where we started talking about the ride.
