    basically on the Internet no Dh or FR trails exist....leave your email address and say you will help dig, carry tools, and maintain trails or no one will give you info

    There are plenty of DH and FR trails in So Cal. All you have to do is open your eyes.

    mtbaddisct720- I dont know why no one just mentions top of the world in laguna, Santa Ana Trails next to the Costa Mesa Bluffs. Those are 2 that i know of in OC. I hope this helps.

    Maybe because the Laguna trails are illegal. The only legal "singletract" off Westridge is Stairsteps and maybe soon Corridor!

    Check the videos out, this may work for you, not OC but close....Del Cero Park, Palos Verdes http://www.socaltrailriders.org/foru...ead.php?t=2879

    Also some fun stuff at Robbers Peak, Santiago Oaks Regional Park.

    Corridor is there just not legal yet...County is considering opening it. Goes from top of Chollia down to Toll Road where it intersects with El Toro.

    Don't know why, I speculate that they started before mountain biking was popular and were never legal, nobody cared about a couple of AMP Research crazys riding up there back when.

    I started riding four years ago and they were off limits then. There again I don't ride them and I don't know anyone that has ever been ticketed for riding them. I do see the county trying to block access to them.

    Well that blows. I have not been there for a real long time, but before I use to ride there all the time. The only time I thought it was illegal was at night. We use to do night rides there. How is whiting ranch? Have you ever ridin there?

    Whitting....Yes been there, good fun, no freeride.

    Go try 5-Oaks, Stairsteps and Laguna Ridge in Aliso and Laguna Wilderness Parks, that should keep you happy for awhile.

    Picture is of one section on Stairsteps and yes it is steep.
