Are you riding?

Hey guys, just rode a bit up Nichols Canyon, so giving in places, other areas not so much. Not as much traffic as I thought would be considering all the news regarding the fire in the Sepulveda Pass.
Can someone post a way to ride into the Angeles Crest Forest. I mean, riding up to Moutn wilson sounds great, but is this something I should do with a friend, or is alone okay…
Thanks again.
Love, Peace, Harmony
