Highlight: Hungry Valley SVRA - Pipeline Road
Pipeline Road is one of numerous off-road trails in the Hungry Valley SVRA (State Vehicular Recreation Area) just outside of the Gorman and Frazier Park mountain communities in Southern California. Over 130 miles of motorcycle, ATV and 4x4 trails spiderweb throughout this 19,000 acre park. To traverse these trails, you will climb over hills, plow through muds pits, shoot down sand washes and at the end of the day, idle into one of the numerous campgrounds. On any given weekend this park is full of dirt-bikes, side-by-sides, quads, and 4x4s. If you are new to off-roading and just looking to get your first taste, Pipeline Road is a great place to start.
