Run date: October 7, 2017
Meeting Time: 8:30 AM Leave at 9:00 AM
Meeting Location: Flying J Gas Station in Frazier Park. (Frazier Mtn exit off I-5). We will gas up at the Flying J and then drive to the trail head.
Trail Description: Moderate trail. The first part of the trail is steep switchbacks and has some pretty good steps going up. Erosion may have increased the difficulty of some of these since the last run. A rear locker is recommended. The trail then follows ridgelines across the hills through a burnt out area and then drops down a series of switchbacks to Lockwood Creek.
We will most likely stop for lunch at Piru Creek and then head up the hill on Miller Jeep Trail through two miles of rock garden to Dutchman Camp near the summit of Alamo Mountain. Add another 15 miles of easy fire road to descend the mountain to Hungry Valley OHVA.
Special Equipment: Minimum 31” tires but could have some trouble. Rear locker and high ground clearance strongly recommended.
Adventure Pass: Enforced. You can purchase the pass at some of the stores in Frazier for $5 per day.
Camping: Camping is available at Hungry Valley Recreation Park. Several camping areas are available in the Hungry Valley OHVA, as well as up Alamo Mtn. Get off I-5 at Hungry Valley Road and head west about 4.5 miles. Campgrounds are on both sides of Hungry Valley Road near the jeep obstacle course, as well as right on Gold Hill Road. No reservations are necessary, but camping is on a first come, first serve basis. Camping is/was $10 per night and is collected at the ranger kiosk at the park entrance. Neither drinking nor non-potable water is available anywhere in the recreation area. BYO.
