In this issue:

1. Black Star Canyon Road to have limited closures during weekdays

2. Rescheduled Enduro Stuff Challenge – December 10th – Caspers Wilderness Park


The County of Orange’s OC Public Works Department has awarded a construction contract to replace three deteriorated timber bridges along Black Star Canyon Road. The bridges are located two to three miles north of Silverado Canyon Road along Black Star Canyon road. This road becomes Skyline Drive at the Orange/Riverside County line. This project will improve access for emergency services and the public to the unincorporated County wilderness areas and the Cleveland National Forest.

The road is a narrow, twelve feet to fourteen feet wide dirt road that is currently being used for hiking, biking, fire and emergency access, as well as local property owner access. Black Star Canyon Road will be closed for public hiking and biking use on Mondays thru Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on November 23rd to December 23rd.

No weekend closures are anticipated. For further information on this project, please contact Javier Soto, Manager OC Inspection/Contracts, at (714) 245-4505 or George Zaun at (714) 448-6829.


The Enduro Stuff Challenge & Mountain Bike Expo at Caspers Wilderness Park in San Juan Capistrano is rescheduled for December 10th, 2011.

Yes that’s right, another race in our OC Parks, the second ever! The first one was so great they (OC Parks) want us back for more.

Not only will we have a great race, but a Mountain Bike Expo with demo bikes, lighting systems and more to check out!

Racers this time will have the opportunity to camp the night before if they wish. We are also working on a possible sponsored night ride (details are coming soon) for Friday the night before.

There will also be a raffle for great prizes including a Kona 2012 Humuhumu! All proceeds from the raffle will go to maintaining the trails at Caspers.

Check out www.endurostuff.com for more details. In the event of rain the event will be rescheduled.

New for this race is an open Single Speed class. So one geared people can put it down on this tuff course and see who has the mostraw power out there.
