I returned to Spangler Hills via Ballarat, just making it to camp at sundown. I didn’t have time to explore Ballarat, but the roadside plaque indicates it was a pretty big deal back in its day.
Overall, this was a fun ride. I think next winter I might come back here. Next time I’d probably stay in a hotel in Ridgecrest and do more riding in Spangler Hills – the OHV area is only about 20 minutes from town.
I previously posted some GPX files for DV in the Club Rides forum that include the 5 mile rock garden. I’ll update those, removing the bad parts, and re-post them.
