Wink Where to ride!? I'm visiting.

Hi,

I'm here visiting some friends in the La Mirada area and I am wanting to get the Dakar out in the dirt somewhere. Anybody have any suggestions? I would like something close as I will be leaving the family at the house and can't be gone too terribly long. Thanks in advance!!

Take Hwy 39 (Beach Blvd) up past San Gabriel Dam and Wash (nice mountain black top) then Rincon Shortcut to Hwy 2, 26 miles one way (reasonable dirt last time I went). Check on the computer to see if Rincon is open.

I'm pretty experianced but I'm not looking to do any hard core single track. Maybe some nice dirt fire roads or wide open desert riding. Just something to get off the pavement! I do have to try to stay in one piece though. I have to make it back to Colorado for a job interview, then make the drive back to Virginia. So like I said just looking to give the Dakar a little dirt time !!!

Thanks for the replies.

same here, called the ranger station last friday and edison presumably still working there.

no completion date is set....bummer

from la mirada and since you prefer to return home in 1 piece, i guess you're best chance will be silverwood or angeles forest.

and still be home for dinner.
