Routes / Re: California Hike Bike Sites closures

Thanks OldDogBC. I recently had contact with the California State Park and they had further information.

The San Onofre BLUFFS Campground in San Onofre SB is closed Oct 1-May 15. However, there is a campground 1.5 mi. off route at San Mateo Campground year around. This is also part of the San Onofre SB. We will clarify this in an addenda and at next reprint of the map.

Hello Greyghost,

Much of the GDMBR is open to motorcyclists and has been done on motorcycles. Use caution and have respect for slower moving vehicles/people and that will go a long way.

We did a blog post on the topic here:

Also, if you do an internet search for 'great divide mountain bike route motorcycle' (without the quotes) a number of related links to blogs and forums will appear that can point out the dicey areas.

I hope this helps.

Thanks, John. I'll file this so we can track the issue and follow up as seems fit.

I missed your post describing your problem with California Hiker Biker sites. If you think this is a problem other cyclists will encounter, we'd like to know about it so we can track the issue. It might be an one time thing or it might be a long term problem. We can't know unless people let us know.


Hi etsisk,

I've been looking - unsuccessfully - for a forum on the Atlantic Coast Route. Haven't found one yet (thus "unsuccessfully"). Are there forums for individual routes?

We do not have forums specific to individual routes. If you have a question about the Atlantic Coast route, you could try searching some element of the question, or posting a question in the Routes  area (

Also, are you aware of this Atlantic Coast description page? It has a fair amount of information available, be sure to read all of the tabs as well. You might find your answer there.

I hope this helps.

Routes / Re: Custis Trail into Washington

I found this archived forum thread from an Washington (DC) area group that might be helpful. They mention the Custis Trail.


Thanks for the update and info!


Thanks dobsonjv for the update!


General Discussion / Re: Difference on maps?

We are just finishing the Lewis & Clark. The map panels have a elevation profile along with mileage chart.

Not all of our routes have elevation profiles, older maps that have them are in a single strip on the back side of the map. Beginning with the Lewis & Clark route, we started adding them to the individual panels.

Also on the map it would show mileage between point byway of black dots. These features are not on the Subject maps.

Pacific Coast 1, 2 and 3 have been updated with GIS information and some new formatting. The black dots have been replaced with red karats and red numbers in between to show those distances.

I hope this helps,

Routes / Re: North south route from Bozeman to Tucson?

If you haven't already, you might want to take a look at the resources available from each state for bicycle maps and routes. The following website lists contact information and website links:


As stated earlier, if you are traveling with your passport one alternative to continuing westbound from the Northern Tier route, you can go north and ride across Canada to Vancouver. A couple of cyclists came through the office today and recommended this routing from their experience:

From Tonasket, ride US 97 north to Oroville. Then northwest on Loomis-Oroville Rd along the Similkameen River for 21 mi.
Then leave the river to continue north to the border crossing where the Loomis Oroville Rd. turns south. (The border crossing has limited hours, see this website for more information
Continue north on Similkameen Rd. to Crowsnest Hwy./PR 3.
Ride PR 3 north to Hope, then west on Lougheed Hwy./PR 7 to Vancouver.
As you enter Vancouver route will become Broadway St. As Broadway St. gets busier you can go south 2 blocks to 10th St. which is the bike route into the city.

Slight seqway on this topic.  How were the hiker/biker sites in California from SF south to the border?  I've head that quite a few no longer have hiker/biker sites (eg South Carlsbad).

From the Pacific Coast Section 5 addenda (

Some of the CA state parks have closed their hiker/biker sites due to vagrants. You can find a updated list of hiker/biker sites by searching "Activity/Facility" at this site:

Hope that helps.
