Where do people ride at night usually in OC? I went out to Aliso the other morning and saw a few people at around 6am with lights but I thought it was illegal. I'm looking for a legal place in OC to ride in the dark..thx

National Forest riding okay.
So one good option is Santiago Truck Trail to the Luge, or go up further (all the way to Old Camp if you like) out, and back.....

yep. you'll often see quite a few folks heading out after 6pm from Cook's Corner and up Santiago Truck Trail. Enough that you could probably even find some folks to ride up with.

A group of us shuttled San Juan Trail last Thursday night. First time for me at night on this trail. It was like a whole new trail at night.

yep, the state parks are illegal at night (Aliso, Laguna Wilderness, El Moro, O'Neill) I know aliso has been patrolled in the past.

As someone else said, Cleveland National forest has no restrictions. Lotso riding!!Blackstar/MDTT/Santiago Peak/Harding/STT-Old Camp-Luge/Holy Jim/Trabuco Creek/SJT/Chiquito to name the major ones.

If your riding alone I would say go with the Fullerton Loop since it's safely nestled in the city(sort of).

Otherwise in a group the other places would probably be more challenging riding. IMO

do you know where cook's corner is? where santiago canyon and live oak meet. there are a few riders that park there to do STT and the Luge. i know Team Basso does a weekly night ride from there every thursday night. i get their emails, but i've never ridden with them yet. i've ridden STT and the Luge a few times in the late afternoon and early evening. you run into a few riders. i believe it gets the most traffic tues and thurs night. i think its about 17 miles if you go past the luge and up to Old Camp/Look out point then down the luge.

go to teambasso.com to get on their ride list.

Lots of people do Luge on nightly/weekly basis, but Black star is a great night ride as well...on a clear night...views from the top are great.
