Dude, check out Anza borego desert. You can pick up a trail book or map for like $5-10 at the 4x4 shop across the street from the jeep dealer. Forget the name but the guys in there were very cool and got me started riding out there.. There's a few mines and good trails out there. Like a 45 min drive to nearest trail. I haven't been out there in like 2 years but I loved it out there. Hope that helps.
