    Weekday Riders?

    My adventure vision for this Monday is Boulder Creek up to Cedar Spur / Eagle Peak rd into Julian then maybe poke around Wynola and Volcan Mtn. Likely back down 79 to Laguna, then Pine Mtn to Descanso. Probably on the road by 9:00 since it could get hot later or maybe T-storm based on clouds popping up this afternoon. Any takers?

    Ooh, didn't see that until now. I might be down for this! Fred Canyon is one of my favs! Check your PM's Rory. 👍

    Oh that is good news! Thanks for the update. I'm considering doing Coral Canyon on Monday if anyone is interested? Likely an easy loop and big bike friendly. If nobody is in for that one it might turn into a sport bike ride somewhere fun and twisty like Banner Grade east of Julian.

    Here's the link for road conditions. It says they are both open. https://www.fs.usda.gov/detailfull/cleveland/alerts-notices/?cid=stelprdb5340229

    Nope, it famously was blocked by an angry new ranch buyer who has barricaded the link to Fred Canyon. He started with gun play but has backed off to barbed wire and a gate made of iron pipe. I hope he has a heart attack and nobody can get there in time.

    No, that is the approach from Pine Valley which is the south end. I suspect both ends are closed now.

    That said I was having as good time on Thing Valley rd which had zero other people about. It is now closed just past the little cabins on the left about 3 miles in so no more Fred Canyon loop until someone figures out a bypass! 😉

    So Pine Creek rd can't be done regardless of the Cleveland NF roads website status due to the recent fire and this:

    Looking at Pine Creek rd this Monday 8/29 since it claims to be open, then up to S1 and over to Coral Canyon. I'll take the easy loop around there and then free form after that. Perhaps down to Campo.... Any players this week?

    Weekday Riders?

    Yes, I was coming back from Julian on 79 and spotted it. I saw some air support so I think they will get it out. I didn't go down S1 south after spotting the smoke. I suspect that will be it for Pine Creek rd this year until we get some rain. They often close Thing Valley and Fred Canyon as well with elevated fire danger. We will see....
  11. I did that one once about 12 years ago and it was fun. They had an "open road" day at Maryhill which was an old switchback road now privately owned. The rally was on the Washington side of the Columbia river then but maybe moved?

    Alas, I have come down with an acute case of employment which may cause a reduced riding schedule, however I was able to negotiate Mondays off so this thread is still somewhat applicable. What say you Monday dual sport riders? Thinking Mt. Laguna area this week or? Update: heading out tomorrow morning at the crack of 9:00 am for Viejas Grade, Boulder Creek, then up Engineer rd to S1, then back via Pine Creek rd and Descanso Junction if you are in. PM for meet up spot.

    Next up is an earlier ride by my standards (9 am?) meet up Jamul or RSD? Thinking Barona/Ramona then Old Julian hwy. Then Wynola and Farmer rd if not too hot. Lunch...? Return Pine Hills, Eagle Peak, and Cedar Creek road before it closes for fire season. Epic fun! Finish up down Boulder Creek rd to Viejas grade road at I-8. What say you weekday riders? Day is flexible here.....
