    DING DING DING......... You got it RIGHT! The trail is fantastic, but too short. I'll be there again Friday (and Saturday, can't get enough), leaving from Father Junipero Serra Rd by the entrance to Spring Canyon at 8:30AM!

    Lets GO!

    What'd I win?

    Is it muddy out there? I've been eyeing it from the 52, but haven't ventured out there in the past few weeks.

    Mud. Yeah there is, but it is avoidable.

    Win...... you wanna win something.......???

    Well you did! You already won, you know where one of the BEST hidden little single tracks lies, so get off that hwy 52 and on the dirt instead!

    Preserve the single track

    Agreed 100%. MUCH easier to wash the bike (which I have done many times in the last few weeks) than rebuilt fubar'd trails. When ya see the puddle, ride "Straight on thru to the otherside".

    Just kidding about the prize. It is a fun little mellow singletrack and so cool to connect with Sycamore. Lots of fun little trails in that area now.

    Well, it isn't going to be a hidden trail much longer

    I don't really understand the point of the pictures and identifying the trail.
    At last check it wasn't actually a "legal" trail. Has this changed (I would like to know, I am not sure but last check it was not)?

    Keep posting pictures and directions, it will either end up off limits, destroyed or packed with yoo-hoos every day of the week.

    Personally I would rather leave "the tunnels" for the crowd.
    Out of respect for the MTRP regulars it would be nice to not see these things posted, nothing good will come of it.

    keep the pictures and directions to yourself or to others in email.

    Nothing will ruin decent singletrack with a picture, directions and 100 or so people on it.

    I guess you own this single track, and have the right to tell people who can and cannot ride this trail? If it is illegal, you should not be riding it either, and do not have a leg to stand on, if someone else post pictures of this trail.

    Im not saying who can and cannot

    Not saying who can and cannot and have never confirmed whether it is legal or not. (have heard not)

    What I am saying is that if the people are riding it now and *would like to continue riding it*, pictures with directions would be best kept off the website.

    example: the initial post was fine with the pic. The followup confirming where etc was not on the good side of things.

    Some things need to be considered.
    If something is a grey area, it is very easy to turn a blind eye to 1, 2 maybe 10 people riding through in a day. Get 50 people a day there, someone gets hurt, there is a ruckus and EVERYONE loses access, no more blind eye.

    Ride where you want, just stop and think about what is more important to you; continuing to ride or pimping it on the internet.

    Idea! It is not some mystery locale

    Everyone knows about it. Most choose not to ride in the area because of the unexploded ordnance, possibilty of being shot and/or arrested and tossed in the brig.

    Some people choose to though....

    Then later having two wives calling you at midnight wondering where their husbands are and then your wife making you go back out to look for the dumb bastids. Why should it be you ask? Because I am now up and had a good three hours of sleep and wide awake because hens are clucking. And if I don't go they will cluck louder for a lot longer. Then getting another call saying they were released and are waiting for me to pick them up at a gas station at 2 am because that is where the SDPD dropped them off.
    They were released to SDPD because they had pot on them.The MPs made the cops cuff them while escorting them off base. Ahh, a second cuffing in the same night!

    One misdemeanor for pot and a big, "IF YOU ARE EVER CAUGHT ON BASE AGAIN WE WILL BRING CHARGES AGAINST YOU FOR BOTH TIMES YOU WERE TRESPASSING ON A MILITARY BASE"

    Fortunately, six grand worth of equipment made it home with them and one hidden charge for trespassing on a military base .


    Did I rant?
    I am not sure if Spring to Syc is that type of connector from the story, but be careful out there!

    Oh, multitools are considered weapons when you are caught on base and therefore subject to slightly rougher handling because you didn't mention that you had a weapon.

    again, common sense prevails. Carrying pot anywhere in MP territory is not a good idea. Getting caught trespassing with pot will have a negative outlook on all of those who had a "blind eye" turned toward them.


    Then again... really, a few hour mountain bike ride, leave the pot at home.

    Gotta say, one of the sweet things about being in the military in SoCal is unfettered access to Pendleton and Miramar.

    No worries about the MPs!
