Any week day wheelers in the SoCal area?

Gonna be in Anaheim first week of May and have Tuesday/Wednesday free to explore. Thinking about taking my Jeep, and was hoping to hook up with a local/s to show me some places to wheel. Nothing too hard core. Jeep specs: 2.5" lift on 32's, LSD rear, open front. I was considering Hungry Valley or Big Bear.

I might be free. I can show you Santiago peak this very close and easy.

I don't have anything on my calendar yet for May 6-7.

I might be up for a Santiago Peak run if the Main Divide Trail is open.

Another quick day trip spot is Cleghorn Trail. It is about an hour drive from Anaheim.

I heard of Cleghorn, but not Santiago peak. I'll have Tuesday and Wednesday to explore. I can leave Anaheim by 7:30AM, so either place sounds doable.

I may be up for a run with you as well. Wednesday works for me.

Santiago Peak is the highest point in Orange County. It is along the fire/access road called Main Divide. All the trails are fire roads.... you can drive your truck, car, or Jeep on the route. A nice cruise but nothing that will need 4wd. Here is a link to some info about it :
Main Divide Road - Dirtopia, the Off-Road Encyclopedia

Cleghorn has side trails unlike the Main Divide. It has some interesting side trails that will have you in 4wd. The main route on Cleghorn is very similar to the Main Divide in that most vehicles would be able to navigate it. The side trails of Cleghorn is where the fun begins.
Here is info about Cleghorn for comparison :
Cleghorn Ridge Trail - Dirtopia, the Off-Road Encyclopedia

Either trail makes for a fun day away from the city.

Thanks for the info. I was also considering the Big Bear area. I'll have to read up some more, but I'm looking for trails that are intermediate to moderate. I'm not into big rock crawling like JV or Calico, but I'm not afraid to challenge my Jeep's abilities a little. I don't have rocker protection, so that'll be a factor to the places I can visit.

You would enjoy Cleghorn, Jimbob. I will give the info I have on it to Indy on Saturday morning and he can drop it off to you this weekend. Santiago is a nice drive, but you might be bored. ;-)

Cleghorn is fun. Not to tough and mostly dirt. It does have some interesting side trails that will give you some challenges but nothing like a black diamond trail would.

For those of you that might be able to wheel with me Tuesday or Wednesday, shoot me a PM and I'll give you my cell #. I'm thinking Cleghorn and HV. Big Bear might be a stretch.

Ok, let me know. Just got in to Anaheim! I'm open to explore if you have any suggestions.
