Went out this morning to just view (i work and am a student)

There is ALOT of rigs and ALOT of buggies. Kinda cool. I plan to ride saturday. I know all the moderate and easy trails like the back of my hand. I want to do the hard trails i think. I have the lift for it and there would be the support there


btw I have a GPS map of all of the trails

I know that some of the trails are closed. What is the best way to get to some good trails. I have a friend who wants to take his daughter out there and wants to see some good climbing. I know that rocky acres is closed but what is a good alternative. Thanks
