OFF-ROADERS WELCOME
Days still long enough for touring adventures…weather cool enough to enjoy it…some of the best riding times coming up right now!

Are
you planning an early start? Stop by the Community Center between
7:00-10:00 a.m. for the Saturday Breakfast with a never-empty coffee
cup. Large breakfast, only 6.00! Small breakfast, 4.00.

Navigating by GPS? – find your way to the Community Center:
34.3424938     -116.56066880000003.

The
Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Area offers lots of trails for every
kind of vehicle, complete with amazing views and varied terrain.

The
best way to head out there using community roads: go straight down to
Hwy 247 on the road nearest you. You can cross directly over the highway
legally to the dirt trail running along the north side of Hwy 247.
(Please stay on the dirt shoulders if you travel on the paved Larrea
Road while in or on a green-sticker vehicle.)

Always take water,
tell people where you plan to go. Verizon has pretty good cell coverage
out there; ATT not so much. Never go out there alone.

Slow,
please, on the community roads. Lots of blind corners you need to be
wary of. These days we start to see more traffic – you can’t see what’s
heading your way, and it could be juniors on mini’s.

Remember,
any vehicle, street-legal or not, going over 25mph damages dirt roads.
Delivery vehicles and the trash truck do the worst, but OHVs get the
blame. Noise can carry, and dust can drift a long way.

COOL IT ON
LARREA ROAD. Please take care, watch for vehicles, watch for kids
playing. Intersections with the side roads can be hard to see. Ask your
guests to be careful, too; we don’t want their visit ruined.
