Lynx and "razor road" are off of Upper Big Tujunga or AKA '9 mile'.
you can see Angeles Forest Road in purple in the distance.

if you take Angeles Forest to Upper Big T go past Lynx about a mile or so and on yr left there is a powerline road.(there is a few more as well that are not that interesting ).
"razor road" goes up for awhile.
it has some technical off camber and roller coaster hills.

keep an eye out for the SUNDAY church rides and i'll get the congregation up in the Forest of Angels.

i will be home sat and sun to prep the xr so i can do sito's ride next weekend.
I had the MSR bottle with me in Baja, but never had to use it. The furthest I went on a tank there was 135 miles. Keep it below 60 and it gets 65mpg, so don't worry about running out off road with it.

I will have more gas capacity before I go to Baja again, it kinds puts a damper on things when you get lost and the light comes on after 100 miles.

dhr, hope your dog comes out good. pets to many of us are like family members. when they get sick or hurt, we feel the same way too.

anyone riding today or chuching tomorrow...if you have the chance, check out moody canyon (4n33). you can pick that up off bpl (see the sign in the pic). yeah, for the first time, the gate was open, that road will take you north to crown valley. from there you can easily make a right and head out to acton for food.

I rode through that gate last weekend and a couple miles down I ran into a locked gate and sign that read private property no trespassing!
