On my 2007 XT225, I recently rode over 500 miles (mostly dirt) on Forest Service roads between Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead, CA. Examples include 3N16, 2N13, 2N10, and 2N71. Mostly easy terrain, but a few technical, more difficult sections and trails (search "dishpan springs trail" on youtube for a videos of a crazy section I had to WALK my bike down). Great scenery, wildlife, and relatively uncrowded trails!
Looking to do more riding - OCTOBER 2017 - before it's too chilly up there. There is literally a web of trails and loops to suit all riding abilities. Of course the XT is a PERFECT bike for riding those trails!
Any SoCal XT riders out there?
