Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Los Padres National Forest offers a good variety of narrow single track that winds through some interesting scenery. The trails here can be described as mostly challenging with rugged hill climbs and loose chunk rock, but there are some sections that wind through some deep woods that are smooth and twisty. There are some double track but this area is geared for experienced dirt bike riders.

There are several campgrounds to choose from but they are primitive and only have enough room for small compact trucks and trailers. There is no water or services so come prepared. The trails and campgrounds are seasonal and are usually open between the months of May through November, weather permitting.

This trail system is also close to Mt. Pinos Trails which is a few miles south off Lockwood Valley Drive. Visitors should note there is no direct OHV access from Frazier Park to Mt. Pinos, so you will have to trailer your bikes or have a street legal dual sport.
