There are a number of good spots back there. But Mine! Now that's a Spot! I requires 2 dogs, 1 ferrett, bolt cutters and a bottle of pepto-bismol to get there.

3-5 is only a trail that connects loop 3 and loop 5.It was closed last time to i don't think it's a big deal it's only a couple miles.

IM THERE...Well Im almost always there since I live down the road :) :D
Call me in!! and probably about 4 other buddies who know the area better than any one alive. We will do some loop 6 off shoots and all sorts of crazy trails. I cant wait to meet everyone.
Yes 3-5 is closed and will not open this year. USFS is doing some clearing. Not a big deal. As for camping...well Ill be driving home at night so that will leave room for someone else.
Oh and if you get hungry on the way up stop at the Red Dirt Saloon/ Ore Cart steak house. Grab a cold one and order the biggest dam burger youve ever seen. It will feed you for 2 days!

As of two days ago, Tie 3-5 was OPEN and the section of Trail 3 between Sugarpine Road and Tie 3-5 was CLOSED. No biggie, you just have to use 3-5 to get down to 3.

USFS folks were unable to provide more info on whether 3-5 is officially open, or how long that small section of 3 would be closed.

Great Question

Let me add

Morning Star has graciously excepted us into there camp site (FAMILY CAMP SITES), Even though the web site has pictures of Dirt Bikes and Quads dont make them freindly to our sport.

Speaking with Pete (Owner Of Mornig Star) he has had problems in the past with unruly dirt bikers.

I just want to let you all know, that we will be ambassadors for TT, as well as the sport, if this goes off, we will be welcome back to Morning star. If it fails and we blow it or get out of hand, we will be asked not to come back and we all loose.

What I am saying is this, We are in a family camp ground, remember that. I dont drink anymore but if you bring it drink it responcibly.

Lets show morning star what TT is really made of...

I keep getting a busy signal when I call the Morning Star telephone number :)

  • John_Lorenz

Posted August 09, 2002 - 05:35 AM


Depends on the time you call, it is only one phone

Maybe its busy with all the TT'rs making ther reservations

Keep trying...

Morning Star only answers the phones between 7 and 9 am (for whatever reason) so It can be tough to get through.

We're going the weekend of 8-16. (23 people in 4 sites)

Breaking into manageable groups is always the problem with big summer time rides. Between the dust and everyone being an "A" rider for the first 10 miles it can make for a long day.

I'll try to make it even if it's only for a day. The Thumpertalk group sounds like a nice group to get to know.

Great idea E.G.O.!

Anyone for a Little Stony trip in October?

E.G.O. is right Morningstar is a family camping area and is STRICTLY RUN! if you abide by the campgrounds rules fully, the owners will respect you. If you dont they are a pain in the a$$. There are miles and miles of kick a$$ trails outside of the campgrounds, save it for the trails. My wife and I have been going to Morningstar every summer for 8 years now and its one of my favorite trips of the year. If you can make it the 20th you dont want to miss this trip. Ill see ya'll there!!!
