Frank Raines Condition?

Anyone know if they have re-opened the upper trails (what little there are) at frank Raines ohv area west of Patterson. They have been closed every since the last fire over a year ago. Riding's limited when its open, but they sure have nice camp areas. Thanks Mike in Modesto

havent been out there this year , thought they opened the ridge and then someone found a wild onion growing and closed it a couple of years ago .never got to ride the ridge never seen the top, camp sites are nice some friends of mine camp out there at thanksgiving, seen trial rides going on there and buggies i guess everything motorized can go

It was still closed in Feb. of this year. Didn't look like much growth had started. Took me about 15 minutes to ride everything that was still open......on a trials bike.

Ride on


i didnt know there was a fire , when was it .

      Yo kids ,
       we just did our annual run to blind Indian today and the other fun stuff the area has to offer , conditions were purely awsome after the storms last night, the #211 trail needs some activity , doesn't look like shes getting used too much , we kicked a bunch of rocks off ,broke some nasty dead branches , etc , still passable , the 1st uphill with switch backs has been storm washed exposing aggregate but thats not suck a bad deal ( traction was pretty good ) , she needs to see more riders ...put this on your agenda, grab some like minded trail hoppers and lets keep this trail fresh

      Trying to buy an older yz125 w a green sticker. I came across a 2004 that is green sticker. Per the owner "CA used to do a lottery thing on a certain year and bike and it was the 04 125 that got the green sticker". 
      I am gonna confirm the VIN, but was wondering if it's in fact true that CA issued green stickers with a lottery system for 2003 and newer bikes?
      I tried searching and couldn't find anything. 
      Thank you all for you advice.

      I just picked up a 2018 YZ250X and need to do my break in. How gnarly is Rowher Flats after rains like we just had? I'm thinking about heading there Sunday. I moved to LA last year and I've only been there 3 or 4 times, but so far I enjoy the riding there more than most of the "day trip" locations.
      Not the biggest fan of Hungry Valley, but I imagine HV is ok despite the rain this week.
      Side note, how bad does the road in to RF get after weather like we just had?
