    El Morrow riders...

    Have you seen that Gate 8 at fenceline is open? Theres a sign that says "public access sat and sun". Of all the years Ive been riding there Ive never seen this open before or where it goes. I have seen people jump the fence, but I never have for fear of black balling MTB's.

    Anyone know of good trails out there? Look like of a ton of fireroad along the cestline, any single track to be had? Looks like you can go back by hwere their building the newport coast homes or towards laguna.

    Yeah, there's some hidden singletracks there. Check mtbbikebill.com for trail maps of where they are - too hard to describe. Lot of brush - wear elbow/knee pads. And watch out for bees - the other week I got stung several times going over a log pile that had a bees nest in it.

    That is Laguna Wilderness Park. http://www.ocparks.com/lagunacoast/
    Yes open on Weekends has been for some time. Best legal single tract is Laguna Ridge Trail (T & A Drop). Maps are usually on a clipboard hanging on the gate.

    within the next year or two. The rumor has been for the last couple of years, once the 133 is done, they are supposed to move the rangers station north of El Toro road and be open 7 days a week, connecting Limestone Canyon, El Morro Canyon and Irvine park/wilderness area.I hope to live to see shade from that tree.

    Yes, go through the gate and go left

    And about 1/8 mile up on the right youll come to the trailhead of lizards. The ridge road your speaking of is Bommer Canyon Rd. Also all the trails back there can be found in the OC thomas guide book. They're unnamed butyou can piece your ride together just by knowing where to change direction.
