Lockwood / Miller is great. Full day on the trail with a really nice break area (with tables) midway. Second half of the trail has some cool mild obstacles. And the Squeeze is always fun.

As long as you don't have 20 jeeps and stop at every pebble to take pics.

Do I look like Edward? And I honestly wouldn't bring a freelance reporter, hoping to make Offroad Adventures magazine (again) on the run either.

Fawk. That was a L O N G day...

Thanks for posting the photos I had a great time as well. That was a nice run and the fastest I've ever done it personally. We hit the trail at 12:28pm and was at the top of Miller Jeep Trail at 3:00pm exactly. Nice meeting you and welcome to the forum.

Edward got his feelings hurt because I posted the run here as well. I refuse to listen to someone tell me where and when I can post. It's better that I am no longer a member of that forum. I don't want to be a part of a forum where the president mixes his personal problems with the members of the forum.

Looks like a lot of fun. My knee is almost to the point where I can get off the road again!!! I want to do this sometime soon.

Dirty's Minions don't officially exist. They are a myth, a bedtime story, a whispered rumor. They are ghosts.

I'd be up for another MJT run as well. I need to find my Los Padres Topo map because I know of some other cool trails there too but it's been a long time. MJT is pretty benign and I found myself going out of the way to drive over boulders and such. It's got some really steep spots but it is a pretty easy trail. I'd really rather run it in a heavy downpour or early snow storm.

Yeah, there is nothing hard about Miller at all, do they have it open in the winter?

No miller is not open during winter.

Trail can be difficult if you choose some crazy lines. But is easy for most part.

I got home today and I broke a u joint. I imagine from yesterday.

They really screwed Miller up during the fire. They graded a lot of it, and flattened some of the better sections. When we were up there last year the soot was so bad that the interior of my jeep was black.

It was good to meet you guys! No damage, just some rim scrapes from "the squeeze" and some new gouges on my rock rails. I wish I could have spent a little more time on top of Alamo Mtn with you guys afterwards, but I had to get to my daughter's school function. I will post the few pictures I have ASAP.

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer - Frank Zappa

There are many ways to get to MJT and I don't see how they could close it. The first section is not MJT. The first section is Lockwood Valley trail. I know It's changed but to me MJT starts at the plateau where the picnic table is. There are other ways in and those ways don't have gates. I need to explore all those other trails. It seems the USFS nazis turned the other trails into mc/quad trails though. I've ridden all the trails in Hungry Valley on my dirt bike except the western most part. If anybody lives close like I do and would like to go and explore let me know.
