Miller Canyon OHV Area: ATV, UTV & 4X4 Forest Family Fun Run

All shapes 'n styles of motorcycles & ATVs as well as 4X4s at the Miller Canyon OHV staging area near Silverwood Lake.

Green sticker bikes & ATVs are welcome. Red Sticker bikes too but must have spark arrestors on your Motorcycles, ATVs & UTVs!!

We can have two or more groupings having fun at the same time - bikes, ATVs & UTVs (Rhinos n' RZRs) in one group AND our four wheel drive members in another too.

The run will be leaving Miller Canyon along routes eastbound up to Pinnacles staging area near Lake Arrowhead. From there, we'd keep on truckin' southeast on over to Deep Creek and then over to the "T6" river crossing.

From there... well, that'll just depend on how experienced & comfortable our participants are with the conditions. The goal is a rewarding, scenic trail run in which everyone gets back safe and sound.

With the dates set we are in business. I'd like to see a big, happy group up in the mountains soon... that's means everybody!!

Mountain Top District Lake Arrowhead Oct 1st to Apr 30th

    Great day once again plus everyone returned back to MC without incident. An OHV Ranger and FS LEO (gun-carrying Ranger) came by "to say hi". We all had Spark Arrestors and current reg... Whew!

    March 22, 2013

  • Drew Mungus ☠

    Gonna be some wet spots but mainly a bit dusty. Anyhow, always a good day's riding up in the pines!

    March 15, 2013

  • Darci

    I really wanted to do this ride but cant make it.

    March 15, 2013

  • Ron

    I'd have to check my schedule on the date you decide.

    March 15, 2013

  • Drew Mungus ☠

    USFS-approved spark arrestors required plus your tow vehicle will need an Adventure Pass hanging in view by the rear view mirror. If you don't have an Adventure Pass when you show up, it's no big deal as I will explain why when we have our "Tail-Gate" pre-ride briefing by 9:30 am. We should return to M.C. by about 4:00 p.m.

    How many are doing the Miller Canyon Ride? I am not plated :(

    March 11, 2013

    • Trênt der Z.

      Requirements: Approved USFS spark arrestor and have your vehicle "Green/Red Sticker" registered. Not necessary to have a "Street-Licensed"­ vehicle on run. For more info > http://www.meetup.com...­

    Ocotillo sounds great that weekend. Weather should be unreal.

    March 5, 2013

  • Drew Mungus ☠

    We could have this ride start up at Miller Canyon OHV Staging Area and join the ride already scheduled on the SCORT site for Mar 16th: http://www.meetup.com/SoCalOffRoadTrails/events/86762832/

    Post your replies here & let me know - Miller Canyon always a hoot!

    Agree with Keith: this ride is still great in April and May. Desert is going to be very hot soon. Maybe a JV or Ocotillo get-away for Mar 15-17, and postpone this ride?

    March 5, 2013

  • Keith N.

    I am assuming it looks like as the date gets closer here, and not much activity on the who will attend monitor, that this ride will probably fizzle out . I'm new to the group and dont know who the original host of the ride was, or is, to contact and confirm if its on , or off. Some concern is if the trails on the ride will be open do to snow/ice. That could be an issue. Snow is cool, Ice is not. I guess i will wait a few more days to see if anything materializes here. If not, time to erase the moutain run,put the desert on the calender for that weekend. Either way.. BRRRRPPPPP

    hi!..I would also like to know whether its a 1 or 2 day-deal..I am geared for 1 day
    ..is there a bike size and rider competency level needed for this particular trip?

    March 3, 2013

  • Keith N.

    Is this ride going to happen on the 16th? Has it been determined if it is a 1, or 2, day ride afterall? Looking foward to it!

    February 27, 2013

    • Trênt der Z.

      I'm still waiting to hear about this ride, too. Anyone... Bueller... Bueller?

      March 2, 2013

  • Mike R.

    Injured leg & shoulder.

    February 21, 2013

  • Mike R.

    With hurting my knee & shoulder yesterday riding, I'm not sure if I'll be ready to do this ride. Remember, anyone can change the details including the date & time of this ride. Shown at the top of this page.

    February 10, 2013

  • Mike R.

    I've never done this ride before. I'm not sure who would lead the ride. Maybe, who ever posted it? Myself I would like to follow someone that knows the way or that has a Off-road GPS. I guess, riding back same day 200miles would be OK for me too. The last time I rode my bicycle from here in Fontana to Palm Desert I was able to just drive back. Of course much funner/easier on M/C.

    February 8, 2013

    Same here: game for any variation. Depending on number of riders, maybe split it in half:
    the ones who want to ride back the same day probably want to take fewer/shorter breaks and could ride ahead:
    Probably meet the second group two thirds into the ride.
    Just a thought...

    February 8, 2013

  • Keith N.

    Hey Mike,
    just so i understand. this ride is approximatly 100 miles up one day, 100 miles back the next? If you you wanna do it in one day I'm game. Wanna do 2 days, Im Game! Wanna do 100 up/ 100 back one day, I'm game. Let us know

    February 8, 2013

  • Mike R.

    I didn't post this ride, but I started to suggested a time & date, like it says above.
    * (Open for Suggestions) *
    But, didn't finish it.
    I'm thinking maybe nice to make it one day. After the 100mile ride, relax for a few hrs, then some how trailer or truck the bikes back to the starting point. (Just suggesting). The time or starting point don't really matter to me. If we do ride back, I guess it would have to be a 2 day ride. Total of 200miles. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    I'm in if green sticker bikes are OK

    December 17, 2012

  • Drew Mungus ☠

    If anyone has already taken up the reigns as "event host" for this ongoing project, please let all of us know. If not, I am willing to put a route plan together BUT... I believe this should be a one (1) day ride, at least for the first time out.

    Green/Red Sticker bikes won't be able to start ride from the location you have specified on the map. You can start from Miller Canyon OHV Staging Area just 5 short miles East on the 138. For exact location, check the map on the link below:

  • ALAN R.

    Lets get a date in the books and do this! Will be lots of fun but not very challenging, a good adventure and a fun ride.

    November 27, 2012

  • Beau G.

    Is this for sure a dual-sport ride? If so is there a first loop for non-plates bikes?

    If the dates work I'm in.

    November 26, 2012

  • Chris

    Are green sticker bikes OK for this ride, or do you do you need to be fully street legal?

    November 26, 2012

  • Mike R.

    I'm fine with just making one long day of it.

    November 21, 2012

  • Keith N.

    Looks Like a hoot! Any idea when you might have the dates locked in?

    November 20, 2012

  • Michael

    So are you guys gonna nail a date down for this ride? I'd like to do it but it depends on the date and soccer schedule - maybe at least do the return ride on Sunday if it happens on a soccer weekend.

    October 12, 2012

  • Johnny

    Looks great but timing is everything...Should be cooling off in a month or so..

    October 2, 2012

  • Mike R.

    I'd like to find out more info about the ride. Time,Date,cost. Thanks

    September 3, 2012

  • Mike R.

    I'd like more infor about this ride. So far sounds perfect. Lets go before it gets too cold. Maybe- 12/1/12 or 12/8/12.

    September 3, 2012

  • Wang

    Looks like great route to ride!!

    September 1, 2012

  • Hisanori

    I wouldn't mind giving it a shot if you guys don't mind a big bike along for the ride.

    August 29, 2012

    • Ron

      Hey I wouldn't mind. I've always wanted to see how those big bikes handle the trails.

      August 29, 2012

    • Hisanori

      Great. Depending on when it is I think I will be interested in going.

      August 30, 2012

  • Ron

    I'd have to check my schedule on the date you decide.

    August 29, 2012

  • Dan S.

    Hi Dennis,
    This looks like a great ride, I have 80/20 tires, do you think this will be too much sand for them? I have a XR650L.

    August 22, 2012

    • Ron

      Hey Dan, I haven't been on those roads before, but on other's in the general vicinity. I would say you should be ok. The sand tends not to last for long.

      August 29, 2012

  • Ron

    Hi Dennis, I might be up for this depending on the date. I live in South OC too
