The Guy was being thankful that he couldn't fall far, because of the boulder...


To think, those West Coast folks can just go on out there...no gate fee...no hours of operation...wow.

I would be so worried about ruining my Jeep! I guess I'll have to own it a while before I had the guts to do stuff like that. Good job!!

Going down Doran Canyon and over the Gatekeeper at its opening is not all that bad. It's going up the Gatekeeper that separates the men from the boys. I went down Doran Canyon and past the Gatekeeper when my TJ was nearly stock but going up is a challenge for even very well built vehicles. It took me more time than I expected my last trip up that canyon.

Hey Jerry no need to get into specifics in public if you don't want to, but what part of the state is that trail in? Looks like somethin that might be worth a trip over.

Yep, it's very near Calico ghost town just north of Barstow and right off the I-15. It's a great area for wheeling with awesome colorful canyons. Here's a combination of three pics combined into one that shows other parts of the trails further in... it's a spectacular area to go wheeling in.

Haha I bet you could find a week of wheeling and carnage there. The other cool thing about cali out in the desert is you can make a new trail too. So you could decide to just forge away up the side of a canyon.

NOT!!!

This couldn't be further from the truth. It doesn't matter what land you are on you can not break from the designated trails.

Maybe because the guys I was with had a license to build new trails (baja 1000 guys)

Edit- Just got a text from him he has his license to build new trails in designated areas. Sorry but the confusion.

No worries boss. I've been a part of building some new trails out here also and honestly it's always a little weird cutting a new trail.
