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.

I thought it was fun! The obstacle course was my favorite lol even tho my wheel fell off. Good spot to test your rig before u do some thing like rubicon

I went with for the first time and it was great! The trails are amazing and the view from the top of the Mesa and other high up spots is breathtaking!

Took my 2 door Jeep Wrangler jk on this trail today, I have a stock rig, and did this trail with no problem. There is really only one challenging section, a gnarly climb up a sandy rock face with a sharp left turn at the top. Had a blast, definitely go to run this trail again!

Great place for beginner offroad driving. Came here with the bro to test my new(used) trucks 4x4 system and was so excited. Entered through north gorman entrance, employee and kiosk very friendly and provided map. main road going in is paved and has a great view once you arrive to the open space. As a newb to this place i stayed on the easy trails, but these are literally easy as in they are dirt roads. Long story short made it all the way through to pyramid lake, and unfortunately found out my 4wd system does not engage when attempting the climb in the 4x4 test area. Luckily i still had the read locker which was more than enough:) can wait to fix the 4x4 and be back for more intense trails!! also make sure you take plenty of water both for you and the vehicle as there is none in the park. Restrooms check.

Fun trail. Ran 4 door JK with 33s/stock lift. The 4 door was almost a little to long. Some super tight turns but we managed. A must do.

This was a pretty fun trail with lots of moguls and a few tight cambered corners. We started from the north and headed south. The biggest challenge was descending a large rock wall towards the end of the trail. 4x4 is a must.

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.

Love it !!! Plan to try another trail tomorrow.
