Rasor Rd. riding

Thinking about taking a trip to the OHV area off of Rasor Rd. Anybody been there? How is it as far as the dunes go? Is there enough sand riding to for me to change my tire out for a paddle? Any info and directions too good spots in this area will be greatly appreciated...Thanks

The Kelso Dunes area in the general area, but are definitely off limits. The remiander of the sand has some low dunes, I mean like 30 feet, max. It ain't no Pismo. The riding in the area has hard pack. Leave the paddle at home.

The riding area is basically to take the Rasor Road or Basin turnoff from the I-15. Rasor has a gas station, mini-mart, Basin nothing.

If you want to real sand, head to Dumont Dunes. It is a little farther up I-15, north of Baker.

Re: Rasor Rd. riding

I go there almost every month in the winter time. I was there last weekend.

I run paddles on my Banshee there, but there are some areas that are hard packed(main road, and areas near the rail road tracks). Really, for all around purposes, you should run a knobbie.

The dunes are not that elaborate. There is a sand bowl which is about 1/2 mile or so long and like 50 or so yards wide. There is the big hill which i refer to as diagonal hill to the north. Very steep.

There is another set of dunes(illegal) just south of the rail road tracks.

Where are you located? Im in Oceanside and it takes 3-3.5hrs to get there...unless im following my dad.
