I also have this question. I am a West Winger and Vistancia is a quick trip. Are the trails on the other side of the CAP canal near White Peak? Is it single track or just jeep roads? And how do I get rid of ring around the collar?

I've ridden around the area before near the mining operation on the west side, but that was years ago.....

Get on Google Maps-find the northern HOA pool across from the park.
Sully is leading a ride at 6:30 AM on Sat.
maybe 2 hr.

Anybody have GPS data? I may head out there Sunday. Is it single track or quad/jeep road? Used to ride my dirtbike out there many years ago, but don't recall any single track.

It's all dirt roads out there, I used to ride my dirt bike all over the area before it got developed. I have no idea what it looks like now. The main access point used to be this bridge across the canal by Twin Buttes.

I found an old gps of a dirt bike ride I did long ago just north of the canal, don't know if it helps.

I wanted to go but could not make it. Did anyone save GPS tracks from today's outing ? Anyone ride these trails regularly ? I'd love to join next time.

Anyone want to ride there today? Just a leisurely exploration ride, I have never been there. Don't be afraid of the heat!
