San Clemente Single Tracks could work...
what about marsal canyon in la vern
long time ago we did a Fully loop at 12AM!! it was glorious.... no joke...
hell ya! midnight loop ride on a friday night!
We did Palm Canyon as a night ride several weeks ago (months?). One of the best rides I have ever done. Very mind bending to be doing something as remote as that ride with a full moon and hitting the dry wash at 3am. It was me Brendan and Dave from Hub Cyclery. Brendan went without light for 90% of the ride and Dave was on a fully rigid bike. Both were on single speeds. I was geared and could land a plane with all the light I had. Just waiting for the next Friday night full moon.
I saw a group of at least four working their way down the Dump Trail (Crafton Hills in Yucaipa) about 8:00 last night. Not sure if it was legal .....
That ride's been going on since the late '80's.
BITD, Wednesday nights in Summer could have 30 - 40 riders.
That group of riders consisted of me and a few of my friends. Illegal?? Not at all! I have been riding Crafton @ night for twenty years along with JCW who posted above me. We also ride on Thursday nights. Meet us at YAPS at 6:00.
If you start from Trabuco wash all the way up to Horse Thief and back down that would make for a fun nite ride 1-1.5 hrs. Thats located just pass the fire station near oneal park. The best part about the ride is you dont have to worry about falling off the mountain. The trail enters into the cleveland national forest. On the way down ive clocked 35-40 mph. Just bring good lights it gets dark.
Their is a single track that follows the road on bell ridge, it is perfect at night.
I have done the Weed Patch at night. not bad.
Not too long ago I was going in for a quick bike ride in Aliso Woods about an hour before it got dark. I encountered a park ranger in her ranger truck on the trail at the very start and she said the park was going to be closing in 20 minutes. So I couldn't do my ride.
New guy here. Thought I'd chime in because most of the trails posted up are well south of me, I'm in Santa Clarita. Tapia Canyon is a fun night ride location, a majority of the property is private property with the owner being a SX and MTB rider himself.
Is Arroyo Trabuco trail legal to ride at night?
Chesebro canyon (Agoura Hills) is legal for night riding (so said the ranger I asked with lights strapped to my head) and has trails for all levels.
It's been asked a couple of times on here, but no reply yet. Anyone know if Marshall Canyon is legal at night?
Park hours are sunrise to sunset.....
I dont know of anything that is closed at night, just watch the night parking signs. Right now the sun is staying out late so I put my lights away. You need to be almost down by 8:00. I am sunset rider, the cool evening ocean sea breeze keeps the thermo in the 70's and if you ride ridges you will be fine. Watch out when dropping into the oaks, it gets dark in there.
Happy twilight trails
I was out riding a ridge tonight and everything was firing on all cylinders, I climbed some techno chutes I normally do not make. Still failed on a few and so it goes. But I only remember the ones I made.
Happy smiling climbing.
Fudge. Really wanna ride right now but oaks is gonna close. Bummer. And i dont have powerful lights to be out in the dark.
Just got home an hour ago from my ride at the fully loop. Great ride with Warren (drifter33) great to meet you and ill see you soon!
Is the singletrack on the right hand side before mariposa?
Wouldn't everything National Forest be legal at night? Harding, Maple Springs, HJ, etc.
