this is an awesome place to ride. I have ridden my dirtbikes out there. You can take those trails out of state in almost any direction. Trails go as far as you can see. Would love to go, but can't pul those dates off- maybe next time.
When I was scouting trails, I stopped in a the local shop to ask where it was legal. The looked at me like it was a dumb question and said " boy- if there aren't fences, you can ride there". I knew I had left California.
