Just to avoid possible misunderstanding, no, you can't ride your motorcycle to the ruins. You need to park in one of the same places that all of the cars are parked. If you're willing to pay twelve bucks, the marina parking lot is best. Otherwise park south of there on Hidden Acres Drive and walk a bit further. A mountain bike might be the best way to get out there, if you don't mind riding over rough ground.

I was just there on Saturday and would have loved to have ridden my XR650L on the exposed areas, but I try to be a law abiding citizen for stuff like that.

Saturday, Feb 1, 9:00 ride to Prairie City OHV and other dirt

I'll be helping out a fairly new (to the dirt) rider on a KLX250 on Saturday. We'll be going over to Prairie City OHV park to do some practice, then heading out to find other dirt. Probably roads around Foresthill like Ponderosa and Yankee Jims.

If any of you are interested in tagging along, we're meeting at the Chevron station in Folsom on the corner of Prairie City and Iron Point at 9:00 a.m..

The ride should be appropriate for any motorcycle that is supposed to work in the dirt. I'll be riding my XR650L, but I don't expect to go anywhere that wouldn't work just as well on my KTM 990.

I was going to suggest Latrobe Road and Michigan Bar Road, that's pretty close to Prairie City. I actually went through there on my W650 way back before I got the KLX.

Also there's an unpaved section of Meiss Road between Dillard and Ione road not too far from there, nothing special, just a ranch road.

Latrobe/S Shingle/Michigan Bar is an option if the other guy doesn't want to do the longer ride around Foresthill. We might even be able to work on our water crossing skills.

Sounds like a great plan, but alas my skills are lacking a little to jump into that level of commitment. I'll work on it and try to make the next one.

I'm up or equally down to ride some pavement and dirt, it aught to be perfect and just wet enough to be near dustless!

Yankee Jims, Shirttail, ect… or wherever. I'm in Fair Oaks, so ~9:00 somewhere around auburn or Colfax is doable for me. Or a little earlier or later I don't care.

I'll watch this space.


Have a good ride Scott and Mark! FYI, smile and make small talk with the ranger at Prarie City, they sometimes let you in free if you ride in.

I would be on a new 1190 with original 90/10 tires.
Would this work for the anticipated ride?
