Are people still getting kicked out of there? I was up there a couple times last week with no problems, even saw a few PD cars pass by. Anybody have issues riding there?

I got kicked out of there and they wrote down my license number and license plate number. They said it was a no tolerance situation where the owner wants trespassers arrested on sight.

There is a private track out on Chestnut and Clayton. You have to be one of their club members though. I haven't been out there to check it out. If you decide to check it out, let me know what it takes.

Nope. All of the surrounding area is owned by the same bank as the running horse property. The area acrossed the street is where I got kicked out from.

They only allow 30 members, and you pretty much have to pray for a miracle to ever join. Each member is allowed 2 guest riders per day tho, so better start finding people who belong to the club! lol.

Take the 14st exit off 198, head south until the road stops (5 or 6 miles). Turn right and go 2 blocks, then left on 14 1/2 st. Follow road south for 2 miles or so, just prior to the road turning east there is a dirt road into the field on the left hand side, thats it.

FDA

Well they just fenced an area of it so its a little different, I used to go south on marks then left onto california and about a block down on the right you can enter into the southern lot you can ride, but there is now a gate there. If you keep going south on marks past california, there is a dirt road right before you get to the first house with a huge pile of junk(trash) on the east side of marks, thats how I got in yesterday.

I have yet to seen a problem. I have heard numerous different stories about that too. I'm not a lawbreaking kinda guy, and was pretty nervous about it because of what I had heard, but I have been riding and seen cops go by right next to me on the road and nothing happens. It seems someone has bought a portion of the land there because in the last couple weeks an area has been fenced off and is being prepped for something, I figured the workers would have called the fuzz if what I was doing was no bueno, but again nothing has come of it. It seems to be ok for now, maybe that will change maybe it won't, but I'm having a blast riding there.

Avenal was nice.......
It had a good mix of everything, kinda small after driving an hour but worth a look.
It had a few nice hillclimbs, some random track style setups, a few jumps and some good trail riding.
But WATCH OUT 4 DEEP HOLES UNDER TALL GRASS! Or just stay on the trail as much as possible. We like 2 find our own hill climbs sometime, so we go bushwackin n the tall weeds 2 find a new mountian that nobody has tryed.
I went over the handlebars twice that day. So watch it
