Re: meet up in Los Angeles Hollywood Area

Mark your calendars folks. Saturday, OCT 6th 10am is our meet date/time. I'm sure there will be some of us heading out early (Friday, 10/5) and staying longer (Sunday, 10/7). If there's no objections to Gorman that will be our meet location. Speak now or forever hold your peace. Thanks for participating in the poll.

BTW - Can someone take the lead on marking the exact location of our meet (directions/gps points/etc.)?

I'm not familiar with Gorman. Never been there.

Count me in! I'm hoping to staying the night but not sure yet if I can make that happen.
Really looking forward to it.

Re: meet up in Los Angeles Hollywood Area

The directions given are correct and that will route you to the main entrance through the town of Gorman. There is fuel, Carls Jr., McDs, Motel and a few other things there. You will have to drive 3/4 of the way through the park coming in from the main entrance. Not a big deal and it is all paved. If coming from the South it is easiest to access by Smokey Bear Road, the rear entrance that also has a Ranger booth a little ways in. Same exit to use if going to Lake Pyramid. If going in this rear entrance you will encounter a dirt road, also Hungry Valley Road I believe but 2wd is fine. It will turn paved after a few miles and the Aliklik campground will be on the left a few miles in.
If enough people are camping I may try and make it Sunday morning but currently have the Expedition Portal Moutain Rendevous in Big Bear Friday and Saturday already. If you are planning on camping Friday or Saturday at Gorman please post that info so others know who might be thinking of coming out out early or late.
Feel free to ask more questions on Gorman/Hungry Valley. I have ridden that place for most of my life. Be careful of head on collisions on the trails, lots of newbie and unskilled riders to put it politely.

Have Fun!
Eric

Re: meet up in Los Angeles Hollywood Area

BTW, I think Smokey Bear Road is appropriately named, it's a favored lurking spot for the local CHP.
