    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.

    "Dog Park" is closed, has been for while, that's why there is a big sign at the top of it saying KEEP OUT.
    You guys are gunna get this place shut down, respect trail closures.

    Like SMT first said......go back to the start of this thread.

    Another trail in that same park is on the verge of being closed, hint....
    When you see a sign that says "CLOSED due to trail/habitat restoration" STAY AWAY
    Soon we'll be riding down paved streets since everything else will be closed due to numb-nuts
    I do understand that some of you are "new" at this, but you gotta learn somehow.
    I've seen many a trail closed in the past due to this exact thing....
    Trail poaching is not worth it, you want real downhill/freeride trails move to British Columbia....where people are not lawsuit happy like California.

    Telonics is illegal too, so was the 'private' race that was on it.

    ALL THE TRAILS THAT START IN ALISO AND END ON LAGUNA CANYON ROAD ARE ILLEGAL. EXCEPT STAIR STEPS.

    As far an Santiago Oaks goes, there is nothing too big. If you huck a few of the sections you can get some pretty good air, but have to search for the good jumps etc. I live here in Orange, and have been looking around for more dirtjump spots, most are run-down, and I have no friends .

    It's not that "we" think that "no one really knows about it." It's just that placing info such as directions and stuff (on the internet for everyone to see) are going to jeopardize these already in trouble trails.

    Giving directions and info via PM is very cool of you!

    I've met two of my really good friends on MTBR because they asked me info and I pm'ed them. The style of riding that I/we do is a very "fight club" sort of thing. It exists but it doesn't also! Get it?

    All it takes is a little imagination and a little ingenuity to find out the info you want. 99.9% of the people I encounter riding are very cool and helpful. Ask and you usually will receive! Most DH/FR riders are very helpful (in person) to direct you to cool riding places.

    In other words, don't just try to find stuff out by placing threads like this>

    Where are the dirt jumps in San Diego?

    or

    Where can I huck my new FR bike?

    Get out and build your own or get on your bike and ride and ask others.
