According to the sign at the top of Lynx/start of Pacifico, the Pacifico route is closed from sometime in November (15th?) through, IIRC, May 15th. I may have the dates wrong, but pretty sure on the months.

On another note, the FS recording for the San Gabriel Canyon (Azusa Cyn) OHV area says that the Rincon Shortcut is supposed to be open again "late spring/early summer". We can only hope.

Why don't you start on Upper Big T and head up the Lynx turnout...there is a sign and everything. You will eventually link up with parts of the trail you are familiar with, and then you will know the whole route. The bottom part is not difficult and there may even be a fun water crossing.
I've heard the washout on 3N17 east of Pacifico is fixed but the road is still closed.

If anyone wants to go a little earlier, we (unrelated group) are meeting at Jays Shell in La Canada at 6:30 am and rding Upper Big T to Lynx to Pacifico if it is open. Two XR650Rs and a DRZ400. If you see us on the trail, stop us and say hi.

Cheers,

We get to ride tomorrow. 8AM on Osborne, next to the 210.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=330162&page=2

Mostly pavement and lots of twisties. We can try the pasta shortcut for some rendevouz on the dirt.

Should be home by 1 or 2 PM.

Razr, if you changed your mind, you know where we'll be at 8AM.

Have a good ride and be safe.

The usual meeting place

Met all the FFs at the old and new again meeting place. The morning started well, someone tipped us off about the CHP in Little T. We started easy and we eventually run onto him as law abiding citizens.


We're back again at the usual meeting place....the 7-11 adjacent to Osbourne.



Pasta's bike spotted in front of the 711 for the first time after a long sabbatical






Pasta, gonnasnap, D4D, Artboy, and Nowwhat. The rides 4 pigs and 2 supermoto




2 Mikes in $1100 outfit (each!)
