My favorite national Forest in California. I love this place. I drive through it almost every weekend. I can't get enough. So much nature, the quiet and solitude. It can't get any better than here..
It's a place for the whole family, especially if you have dirt vehicles, or toys. it's lots of fun out there in the canyon.I would say there's something for everything out there. A great place to go with the family for the weekend with your motorcycles and your off road toys.
