Hungry Valley is the second largest unit of California State Park's Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division. Located in Gorman, 60 miles north of Los Angeles and 55 miles south of Bakersfield, Hungry Valley offers 19,000 acres and more than 130 miles of scenic trails for motorcycle, All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV), dune buggies, and 4x4 recreation. All levels of Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) operator skills will be challenged by the wide variety of terrain and trails at Hungry Valley SVRA. Elevations at Hungry Valley range from 3,000 to nearly 6,000 feet. Occasional snowfalls occur during the winter. Summers are most often hot, dry and dusty. The most pleasant times of the year for OHV fun are during the spring and fall months when the temperatures are mild and occasional rain showers make for good traction and reduced dust. Nighttime temperatures often drop below freezing in the spring and fall, as well as during the winter. The wide variety of trails at Hungry Valley provides excitement for both beginner and experienced off-roaders. A four-wheel drive obstacle course and a one-mile long practice track for motorcycles 100cc or larger are open to the public. There is also a practice mini-track for beginning riders on ATVs and motorcycles up to 90cc. The track is located at the Smith Forks campground. The Quail Canyon Special Use Area is open to the public and has three tracks to accommodate most ages and rider abilities. There is a large motocross track, a vintage track, and a Pee Wee track. All off-road vehicles used in the park must be equipped with a spark arrestor and must have either a current highway registration or current off-highway vehicle green or red sticker. Red sticker riding season is October 1 - April 30. All operators must wear appropriate safety equipment.
Was one of the awesomeness days I had last year. I took my 4x4 up thru the easy trails as I a new and a beginner. It was super fun. They had a off road course for atv, motorcycle, and 4x4 vehicles like mine. I ran it thru the mud test which was fun but I will never do it again unless I have too. Made one hell of a clean up underneath the truck. When u go through the gate the guard will also give u a map. The are clearly marked and include easy, medium, difficult, and ones that are designated for motorcycle atv only. If u are new Or a novice to off roading with your vehicle this is the place to come. Can't wait till the next time.
