    Overnight ride.

    My friend and I are trying to plan a nice 1 or two night camping ride in Southern California. Here are our requirements:

    1) We want to have to camp. We would like to start out at point A, and have to make it to point B (where we would camp), and then the next day ride to point C, where we would have a truck waiting. In other words, we don't want to just camp at a cool riding spot and do loops all day, we want a destination.

    2) Lower elevation would be nice, because we want to do this within two months from now.

    Anyone with any ideas, your thoughts will be greatly appreciated, thanks-

    Good job!

    This would be a pretty cool route;
    after droping Coldwater, then riding back up Indian Truck, you could camp out up around the Santiago Peak. Then insted of droping Holy Jim, you could drop Joplin and still end up back at your truck.
    Or go to the Geoladders site and create your own personal route.
    Just remember that within the next few months, our area will be under a more extensive fire watch than we already are. I would plan on having a cold (no open fire) campsite.
    Enjoy your ride.

    Someone on Geoladders did a route that I believe was something like Blackstar to Blue Jay campground (above San Juan Trail), camped there, then rode back. It's probably a personal route, but you could search for it on geoLadders and maybe message him for a description.

    Also, while you said you aren't interested in loops, you could always check out Idyllwild (weather permitting) and ride the Idyllwild Spring Challenge course (the Pro/Expert version is 30 miles and I believe over 6k climbing), camp at Hurkey Creek, then go ride Thomas Mountain - Ramona Trail the next day. It's not really an overnight ride, but hey. Both trails are fun
