Well, you guys missed an interesting adventure. We drove up the mountain and instead of going south towards the Ortega Highway, I went north towards Corona. I could see some trails that lead back down toward the orange county side, so I figured I'd be able to get back down to black star canyon. I found a trail and the gate was open, so I figured I'd be good to go. It wasn't anything difficult, but it was a long twisting road down. I get down to black star canyon only to find the lower gate locked. There was no going around it either. I had been seeing mountain bikes coming up so I figured I'd be Ok. Nope. I went back up the mountain and continued north and dumped out near the 91 in Corona. It's definitely an easy ride for any stock vehicle. I saw a guy in a honda sedan coming down. Though I can't image what his undercarriage looks like after that. It's a pretty "rough" road.

I love JeepForum it's invaluable in terms of technical info, but I find that MyJeepRocks tends to be more about community and trail rides. I'll be running Cleghorn with a group from MJR.

When you (Slim) go up there again I'd be up for it. I'm off Green River in Corona. I have treked up Chase in route to Main Divide. From the Corona side there is a neat little area there called oak flats where you can have a little fun. I went up there a couple weeks ago with my dad just to get used to the off road thing. All fire road and not much of a challenge for a Jeep. We went a few miles past Beeks place, turned around and rolled back down he hill.

When you came out did you come out at Coal Canyon? There used to be an open trail up to Sierra Peak but they closed the exit and gated it off for some reason??

I just check MJR from time to time for Trail Rides. Then I come here every day to read up on technical stuff. I like to read threads that have nothing to do with my issues to learn about stuff I might come up against. Between the two boards I think I'm covered. We live in the digital age, at least we don't have to go to meetings 5 nights a week.

I had intended to come out at coal canyon (I looked at the sat maps on google before we left), but after I went down black star canyon and had to turn around, I was kind of frustrated. When I got to beeks place (going north) I went to the right, which, according to google, is still Black Star Canyon Road which turns into Skyline Drive and it dumps you out into a development in Corona. I should have gone left if I wanted to get to Coal Canyon, though it sounds like it would have been locked and I would have been doubled pissed. I don't see myself going up there anytime soon. It's a pretty long and boring trail. Every once in a while there's a side trail with some fun obstacles, but it's mostly just rough roads that are more annoying than anything.

Went out to Holy Jim for a little test run on my newly installed lift. Glad I did because both my front shocks flew off and I drove home on just the coils. Fun stuff . OME here I come
