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.
