McCain 5/12-14 Oh, Mother!!

31 posts in this topic

Todd and I are heading out Friday afternoon and staying until Sunday. He's all about some single track-I'm gonna bring both bikes so I have options. We're bringing our little trailer. No bike room, but we can haul out some supplies if needed.

I know it's Mother's Day weekend, hopefully some of you can at least get a day pass for Saturday!

Camping at Lark. Around the bend from the oak tree yonder.:D Lark allows ATVs up to 40" wide. Here's a link to the rules: http://www.desertusa.com/mccain/oct_mcain2.html

I'm all for family dinners! How about pot luck Friday and Mexican Saturday?

Sounds good, will I have trouble getting a site Friday morning?

Have you been out there since they started the construction? It's definitely a little different.... Lots of graded roads and moving equipment when I was there a few weeks ago. Just don't want you to be disappointed, you may want to do some asking around and make sure it's still acceptable for your group.

I'm sure it'll be just fine. Bonus that hubby works on heavy equipment and has master keys:ph34r:

It will be a bit different but I haven't heard any reports that it's affected riding any.

I don't think so. Honestly can't say I've seen more than one campsite occupied there ever.

From the campground and the oak tree that main ridge trail that would transfer from north to south is destroyed,

Ok ok. I'll make a point to head out there a week or so before and make sure it's still good. It's 3 weeks away now so lots can change. 

Can always keep Corral Canyon as a plan b.
