How to find trails

Hello,

I'm a newbie with a 2012 Sport Unlimited, stock.

Where is a good location to go to find trails and trail ratings? (e.g., book, on-line, this forum, etc)

We are going up to Big Sur, California for Thanksgiving and pulling the Jeep up. I will continue to look around, but wondering where most of you look for trails and trail ratings.

Thanks!

JimW

I have a good friend that is blind from Glaucoma. I put him behind the wheel. We find all kinds of trails.

All right, Judge Smails, I'll find a blind friend....

It would be nice to have a site like geoladders (for mountain bikers) that record maps downloaded thru GPS, but for Jeeps!

Personally I have also gotten into trouble following maps on geoladders.com in Anzo Borrego. They were great Jeep trails, but poor mountain bike trails. So, I'm not sure that would be good. But, you can see the trails, time, elevation, difficulty, etc. and judge for yourself.

So, it looks like there is not site yet like that, and I'll ask around when I get up to Big Sur and I'll continue to look on line.

Thanks for all your help!
