I figured we could use our own little corner here to organize and talk about rides in our area(s). :titez:

Hitting San Juan Trail this Saturday morning before the rain, or during it. If anyone wants to join PM me, so far it's just me and one other guy.

Maybe some other time, GS. I'm working Saturday, plus I've never ridden the SJT....believe it or not.
Fir the first time, I'm gonna shoot for near perfect weather.

Did an epic ride above the town of Mendocino yesterday. There is a huge chunk of land that is a demonstration forest for logging practices. Miles and miles of sweet single track.

That sounds awesome, Norton!

I'm going to be in Anza Borrego this weekend. Any recommendations for trails near Escondido?

Escondido is a ways from Borrego, but both Lake Hodges and Daley Ranch have pretty extensive trail systems there.

I ride Hodges semi-frequently, but I hardly ever go the extra 8 miles to ride at Daley.

Thanks Ray. I'm meeting a close friend of mine for a ride and Escondido is closer for him to meet me.

Lake Hodges is just south of Escondido proper, right next to I-15. Daley is just at the NE edge of Escondido.

Of the two, I prefer Hodges, because there are long distances you can ride, and a bit of something for every trail rider's tastes.
If you go to Hodges, and you park near the 15, consider going east for a bit to Raptor Ridge, and find the Highland Valley trail going wet, off of Highland Valley Rd, towards, S. Lake Hodges. The Highland Valley trail runs parallel to the road, on it's south side, and is a really nice flow-type trail.

You have to ride the shoulder of the paved road for a bit less than a mile to get to it from the Raptor Ridge trail, but just stick to the pavement and you'll see a dirt road off to the left. That leads to the Highland Valley trails' eastern trail head. It'll take you west to the 15 overpass, and the S. Hodges trails are right there. You can cross the lakebed on the pedestrian / cyclists bridge they built a few years ago, when there was still water in that part of the lake. It's dry as a bone there now.

And resist the temptation to ride off the pavement on the shoulder of that stretch of Highland Valley road....I've gotten around 30 goat-heads in my tires from doing that. Overwhelmed my Stan's.
