Looking for kid-safe San Diego riding areas

Hey guys, I have 3 little ones ages 9 (twins) and 11, riding crf 50's and crf 70 bikes. I am really hoping to find an open and legal area in San Diego to ride with them. If you know any good spots, please let me know how to get there, and what its like. I am off Los Cochas and I-8 if that helps directions, I would be VERY greatfull to find a good, and close spot to teach the kids.

Jim :excuseme:

I responded in the other thread, too...

I live in Alpine, and have some of the same concerns... Pine Valley is ok, as long as you are riding point, and can keep your group together... if you can get to the rock house with them, they can tool around all day, playing on the mini-moto track. Up in Corral proper, if you stay on the perimeter road you should be ok.

Lark Canyon/McCain valley is what I'd suggest... again... YOU ride point, so you minimize head-ons.

Golden Acorn track is probably a bit much for the kids... Elevation may be ok, depending on their skill level.

PM me sometime... I have a 10 year old and a 13 year old... XR70 and TTR125... they like riding with other kids more than me... I slow them down ;-)

I have heard their was an open area of Corral Canyon, but never seen it. Have heard similar about McCain, but again dont know anywhere exactly to go. I am off for 2 weeks for Christmas vacation, and it would be great to have a place nearby to start getting them more practice in.

I will pm ya too, thanks...Jim

McCain open area: 8 East to Blvd Exit... turn right, then left on Old 80... left again on McCain Valley road; vear right where it turns to dirt... and stay on that road about 3 miles... day use area is on the left, and well-signed... the "open" area is a large sand wash, with large areas of mulch... ALL the trails on that side pretty much criss-cross on each other... Hard to get lost there... injured? yeah... lost? nah

I'll PM you next time I take the kids out

      I don’t ride as often as I used to (every few months now) After dealing with ethanol laced gas turning to shit a few times (I always treat it with ethanol type fuel preservative), is there anywhere in SFV or Simi Valley or nearby that sells real fuel?
      next step will just be draining tanks before I pack the bikes away

      I'm headed down from Northern California in late April/May with my wife and our two dogs. We're just trying to have a relaxing vacation with our dogs and go around and eat at some good places / beaches etc. We were thinking LA but even as far as San Diego sounds good. Wife gave me the a-ok to bring my bike so I can sneak out out a bit to ride. Any suggestions on where to stay?

      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?
