Looking for OC Jeeping sites

Hey anyone got some good ideas on places for off-roading in the OC? Besides the Ortega?

There is also Azusa OHV, been there a couple times. It's not very big but it's fun enough to take my kids along.

In OC? There's Holy Jim... also, Cleveland National Forest, which is probably what you meant by Ortega Hwy? I went up Santiago Peak (the tallest point in Orange County), which is in Cleveland NF, last weekend to break in the new Rubi.

Gonna have to break in my JKUR soon (2015 should be here within a week). This trail sounds fun and close. Is it accessed from Santiago Cyn near 241 toll roads? How long is the trail ride to top?

Easily accessible off Santigo Cyn Road... Make a left on Silverado Cyn drive up a few miles once your past the yellow gate you'll be on Maple Springs rd which leads to all the trails/fireroads

We are taking over the mountain on Sun. August 24th if you want to tag along... Literally taking over the mountain with over 25-30+ Jeeps, we are basically just taking a few newbies so they get dust on their new jeeps...haha

Can you say "Dust Fest"

The Main Divide is a dirt fire road. Any off road driving is illegal, from what I understand. The road is passable by about almost anything street legal. Neat little road and close by .... but hardly a 'break in' area for a Jeep. Once again it is a neat road to get away and into the forest but don't expect more than that. Also they close the gates out here so be sure to check ahead of time to make sure the gates are open.

I would go try Cleghorn Trail... not that far away and it is a fire road that is criss-crossed with side trails that are legal to drive. A person can pick and choose your own adventure out there. Out here you can stretch out a Jeep or you can stay on the fire road.... but atleast you have choices on this trail.

Don't forget to buy an Adventure Pass if you plan on stopping/parking while in the Forest.

What time are you all meting up on 8/14? I have to bail out on the 8/23 run in BB, but enjoy the Trabuco Creek area. I may have to re-schedule something that morning to make it, but it would be worth it

I'm very interested, but what's the plan of attack? I usually come into that area off the west side since it's a shorter drive for me.

The plan is to start off Ortega Hwy to the Main Divide, go to Santiago Peak if we all fit up there... Haha And then exit thru Maple Springs/Silverado Canyon

I would stay away from the Cajon Pass/hwy15 until the construction is completed (maybe yrs haha the way caltrans works) it's brutal (the fwy) on weekends with stop-n-go traffic on both sides.
