Lockwood Creek / Miller Jeep Trail - Review
 
Location:  Southwest of Frazier Park, west of Hungry Valley OHV area.
 
Difficult Rating:  Difficult.  Very hilly, steep and rocky.  Not recommended for stock SUVs.  Tough section at beginning of trail is fairly typical of conditions along the route.  Last few miles of Miller Jeep Trail are toughest part of trip.  Lockers and oversized tires recommended.  Don't drive alone!
 
Features:  Very convenient to Los Angeles.  One of few remaining hardcore trails in this part of California.  Campgrounds along trail offer no amenities; however those in Hungry Valley OHV area include ramadas and picnic tables.  Descent from Alamo Mountain is very scenic.  Route is open to ATVs and dirt bikes.  Stay on designated route at all times.
 
Time and Distance:  Difficult portion of route is 12 miles long and takes 4 to 5 hours assuming no problems (but usually there is at least one).  Add another 15 miles of easy road to descend Alamo Mountain.  Allow a full day for the entire trip.
 
To Get There:  Exit Interstate 5 at Frazier Park exit.  Head west on Frazier Park Mountain Road approximately 7 miles to Lake of the Woods.  Turn left on Lockwood Valley road and go about 5 miles.  Bear left when the road forks at a sign for Lockwood Creek Camground (Road 8N12).  Reset odometer.  Follow a well-defined graded road, ignoring smaller side roads.  Bear right at 1.3 miles.  At 2.2 miles, bear right into a cabled off open area.  Head southwest to an opening on the other side.  A sign identifies the start of Lockwood Creek Trail as route #127.  A larger sign points out that this is adopted by the Point Magu 4wd Club.
 
Return Trip:  Follow Alamo Mountain Loop Road 2.6 miles and turn sharp left downhill.  The road becomes paved about half way down.  it switches back and crosses over a concrete water crossing.  At this point the road becomes Gold Hill Road.  Go another 15 miles to come the the intersection of Gold Hill and Hungry Valley Roads.  Right is the shortest way back to I5.
