Every time I go over Ortega hwy from Elsinore I see the camping and trail signs at the top of the hill. Anyone ever ride up there? Better yet, anyone wanna GO??

It's not the greatest riding.....very compacted, narrow trails, can't get up to speed on a bigger bike. It's more a place to take the kids in my opinion. :)

well that's a bummer. I heard you can ride trails from Fallbrook up to there. Oh well, i'll probably still do it....i'm just stubborn like that :) . I won't be able to say that nobody told me so!

Every sunday morning!!!

I ride the Priller on clean summer mornings when the cops arent about.

The GS when the weather isnt so good or when doing a casual ride up to Santiago Peak. (inte in forground)

and will take the dirtbike up to Wildomar when i want to do a 1/2 day.

but unfortunetly, they close Wildomar for 4-5 days after it rains due to trail erosion. The place is way too small for the traffic it gets so its not a lot of fun unless you get up VERY early in the morning in the summer. Even then, you gatta keep it mellow due to oncomming traffic.

But Killen trail does go all the way through. I have done that on the GS twice now and its a fantastic road. Its paved (or was until the recent rains). And if one was so inclinded, you can ride from San Diego county all the way to YorbaLinda/Corona along that road.

So, if your up for riding, i live on the OC side and hit Ortega with some regularity on Sunday mornings. This time of year im on the GS so keep an eye out.

I drove my truck from the top, south down some fire roads and poped out in(what turned out to be) Fallbrook. So I know I CAN get through, but for now it's sitting on my "list" as well. :)
