    Welcome @Guy S ! Can't wait to see the transition from the Old Speshy to the new Trek, although frankly the old Speshy was pretty good at the time.

    Outstanding. Welcome!
    I live relatively in the Antelope Valley west of the Lancaster/Palmdale. Would really enjoy experiencing some new dirt out your way. Some to share over here as well.

    Do they still ride moto's out in Honda Valley? WE used to ride there A LOT back in the day. I think the first time I rode there was over 20 yrs ago. We'd ride over to the Joshua Inn for a couple of coldies and hot dogs. Good times!

    Not as much as they used to, but there are still several times a times a year where I will see 5-7 non descript white vans parked in the valley's with guys ripping it up, well beyond the layman's capabilities. I'll see one or two guys a weekend on enduro style motorcycles working their way along the trails. The area that runs along the aqueduct has kinda become the local go to spot for mtb with about 50 miles of trail there and trails being built leading over to the Hesperia Lakes area.

    The red area is where everyone usually parks, right across from Hesperia Airport. The blue areas are where the main contingent of trails are. The unmarked area between the blue areas can be covered via fireroad. Definitely an XC area. There are some decent ladder bridges/drops up in the northwest corner of the larger blue area.

    @Ricekrispyota that is awesome. We made lots of tracks in those areas back in the day. A close friend lived near Escondido & Mesquite, we would just rip from his house. Lots of good times out there.
