Just be aware that the upper part is still closed, with no current plans to reopen. Awesome road though regardless. Ride safe.

It still lists it as closed between Islip Saddle and Vincent Gap, and when a called a few weeks ago they said that they weren't planning to reopen. This section has been closed for about 4 years now because of road washouts that they don't have budget to fix.

Are you sure that it is going all the way through??? I'd love if that were the case, but I was up there a couple weeks ago and that section was still blocked off.

Here is a link to the road conditions for HWY 2:

it's open completely.. from the bottom of the hill (Shell gas station) all the way into Wrightwood! I did it last week! And they've repaved the washed out parts nicely. Smooth asphault... niiiiice. No po-po when I went; then again it was a Wednesday...

Let's get a couple of these local netters together and meet up with you!

Ok folks, I have another buddy of mine that is interested in going as well. I am in the process of unpacking at my new place...so it is going to be a couple of weekends, I have to check the calendar and see when the wife has off so I can have no restrictions. I still don't know if I am going to be trailoring up, that would be the most convenient for me...but I will post up and let you folks know when I am going...that way.


So, I just talked to the wife, and I am going to plan this ride for the 14th. I will ask for some directions when I figure out whether or not I am trailoring or riding. I will keep you informed.

SO PLAN ON THE 14th FOLKS!!!! It will be nice to meet some new people to ride with!!!:cool:

Sorry I cant make it but just keep in mind the po-po (one motorcycle A$$h.l.) is hot and heavy Sundays cause he's on to which days most bikes shoot up there. He's freakin pretty fast too so if you see him coming in one direction and your rollin the other way haulin A$$, you better be sure he's gonna pull a u-ey and try to catch you.. I've seen it happen way too often!! Best to roll up with the guys who know the road! Why don't you ride Palomar?? Less Cars, bikes, and Po-Po, line a ride up later in July and I'll show up!!

I was supposed to do Paly today...didn't happen due to un-packing in the new place. I plan on doing that place as well, but want to get up there early due to the amount of "squids" I hear about:lol:


I am just wanting to explore new roads and I have heard a lot about HWY 2....trust me....I am not going to be doing 110....I don't know the road that well to be doing that....I just want to explore some new terrain. If I can get a group to meet me up there or even trailer up with me if someone has a trailer that has ridden it before, that would be tits:cool:

Hwy 2 (aka ACH.. Angeles Crest Hwy) isn't a very tight sequence of twisties... Doesn't require hauling ass either, but no worries. Plenty of signage for recommended corner entrance speeds that are pretty accurate (for the cagers that is..)

As for your CHP.. well, the most well known hard ass has retired. I have Chippy buds who say he's been retired for a while now, so don't worry about him. Some other citz fellow riders tell me he groomed a replacement prior to retirement, but I haven't seen/met him myself. Oh well, I always ride w/my dept ID, so I may offer to be the spokesperson on our ride. NO guarantees though, as you know...

June 14th (Sunday).


From the looks of it, I am going to be riding up there on the bike:rolleyes: I really wanted to trailer up there but I haven't found anyone willing yet coming from San Diego. So, I don't know where or when to meet any of ya:lol: It is about the same distance for me whether I go the the West side of 2 or the East side of 2.


How about this....I am going to edit my first thread....everyone post up who wants to join me, that way we can figure out where to meet, because I can meet at either end of the road, seeing how it's the whole way open now. PM me or post up to let me know you are going...:cool:
