    Night Time Legal Trails in OC?

    With the streetlights coming on earlier and earlier - I was wondering if someone could point out some trails in the OC area that are legal to access after dark. I want to try out some night riding.

    Cleveland National Forest

    Santiago Truck Trail / Luge. Can get a little busy out there at night.

    All the County and State Parks close at sunset.

    i've done fullerton at night before. even though its by the houses it gets kinda creepy. people use the wooded areas for random things at night.

    we do a weekly night ride in the claremont area. marshall canyon/claremont wilderness trails. lots of people from the oc ride it every wednesday night around 7 pm.

    i've heard they do san juan at night too.

    Anything in the Cleveland National Forest - Black Star, Santiago Truck Trail (already mentioned), San Juan?? I dunno. Just look for trails in the national forest. The State and County parks are illegal at night. But then I haven't been night riding in like seven years, so I'm probably blowing smoke out my bung ho, hehe. I got a ticket once night riding out at Whiting years and years ago. My brother and I were met by a cop and a park ranger at the four corners. At least they let us ride back down on the trails

    1. Santiago Truck Trail/Luge (most popular at night)
    2. San Juan (Never been at night, but heard it's great)
    3. Fully Loop (sucks for either day or night riding, but it is open after dark)

    Closed at night:
    Whiting
    Aliso & Woods Canyons

    Anyone know of any group night rides on STT/Luge during the week? Or anyone looking for a ride partner once a week out there? Just not interested in riding out there at night solo.

    Thanks for the invite, however I'd like to do something mid week instead of a Friday night. You ride any other nights besides Friday?

    Tuesday night, 6pm, cooks corner. We usually ride up to old camp, down the luge, then wahoo's for food. Usually a pretty big group, up to 20 on some nights, pretty good pace, lot's of singlespeeders. Come on out if you get a chance.

    Man I remember my first and only night ride at Luge earlier this year -- my buddy and I had just got our lights. We caught up to a group of about 12 riders going up Modjeska -- the guys were pretty fast. Anyways I was pushing hard because I'm still fairly new and didn't want to get left behind -- my buddy Craig is really strong rider. So coming down the last stretch of ruts just before going up to the flag (start of luge) I ate shite big time!!! I was in the middle of the pack so thank goodness I didn't cause anyone to crash, but all the fellaz were real cool and made sure I was aight. I didn't get their names though.

    Anyways I'd like to hook up with some riders or groups who's cool and varied in terms of riding skill for some mid-week rides -- my road-dawg Craig isn't always available. I have a family so I usually don't have time afterwards to eat and hang out (although I wish I could) -- so Luge loop from Cook's would be cool.

    Yoe bdee:

    My buddy and I picked up Cygolite Z-Force brand new for $216 including shipping. These are HID and handlebar mount. Bombproof and very bright and focused. 3 hour runtime on single charge and I've had zero complaints.

    I'd be down also to run luge at night.

    Peace.

    FX - count me in for a 6PM ride tonight (Thurs 11/4). Look for me in the Cooks Corner parking area. I'll be in a white Toyota Sequoia.
    I plan on taking it fairly easy tonight. Got to adapt to the night riding thing again.

    There was a crew doing trail maintenance on the Luge Sat so it should be in pristine shape for tonight. Looking forward to it.
