Everything I know is either big bear and north, or east of San Diego, like Anza Borrego. Holiday stuff is busy but I was thinking about pancake rock thurs or fri.

Plenty of places on Camp Pendleton. Just don't get caught. I second Big Bear. By far my favorite place to go. Its just that there is snow this time of the year. You can also try Truck haven out ocitillio wells.

There's a local San Diego group, 4X4Corps, lots of Pendleton (military) folks, they do runs on a regular basis. Check their website for details Pancake rock is a good, albeit short, leg stretcher. Take a look at Corral Canyon OHV just east of there, I'll probably be going out there next weekend to try out a new suspension. Plenty of challenges for most people. Also check Superstition Mt OHV near El Centro, some of the best wheeling in SoCal. SD4Wheelers will be holding their annual run out there in January

If your ever needing more rigs for a run, throw up a run thread on Militaryjeepers.com. We have a group of members in that area!

well, I made it to the trail head by 1000 air down and 4 vehicles pulled in and started upbound. I fell into the line after a coupl of call outs. At Pancake rock I found out they were a group from Just Runs. Check out their web site for more options to coordinate for a run. All the fun if youaren't ready for a real club with meetings etc. Anyway, after Pancake Rock we head further along wisecarver trail to a rock garden area for lunch and to watch a few more daring take on some of the ledges etc. Jeff in a Cherokee rocked a ledge or two. On the way out we came across Merlin75s group decending from Pancake.
All had fun and the weather was great (well my daughter says it was a little windy at the top) Thanks all. We are still heading out to either Blair Valley or Hidden Valley on the 26th for a couple of days. I'll update my Holiday Runs post.

Four-bangers don't have any problems with trails like that providing they're geared properly. Like if you're running 33" tires, being geared to 4.88 (assuming 5-speed) makes life good with the 2.5L engine.
