i live in redondo so if you want to meet up off the 405 at crenshaw you can follow me up.. i think its up of the 15 somehere. ive never been and im a noob, but i went to last chance canyon last week and i have a stock rubi and made it through, it was very rocky. i heard cleghorn is not rocky like that and there are bypass roads at evey obstacle, but i would let the experts clarify that. what do you have for a jeep?

You'll be fine in your stock Rubi, but a lift will certainly help. I've seen stock JK X's get through there. The obstacles on Miller Jeep Trail are about the same difficulty as the ones on Last Chance Canyon (minus the V-notch), but on Miller Jeep Trail there are more obstacles and they're longer.

The Cleghorn trailhead is at N34 17.975 W117 27.400 . It's the Cleghorn Road offramp off the 15 Freeway, 14.5 miles north of the 210. Dirtjunkie, I don't know what kind of Jeep you have, but a bone stock JK X can get through nearly all of the obstacles. Regardless of what kind of Jeep you have, like Beantown said there's a dirt road bypass to every obstacle, so you'll be fine. You can pick and choose which obstacles you want to tackle. I did tell Beantown that Cleghorn isn't rocky like Last Chance Canyon, but come to think of it I guess it kinda is in many parts, it's just that the rocks are covered with dirt, unlike Last Chance Canyon where it's just rocky.

My girlfriend and I have a stock 98 jeep wrangler with a 2.5
So if you more experienced guys think I can do it with that then I'd like to go with you guys if you don't mind.

@beantown: if I go I'd defenitly like to meet up with you somewhere close by and follow you up there.

Uranus came with us to Cleghorn last time and took on many of the tougher obstacles. I think he has a stock TJ. You should come along. You can bypass any of the obstacles you don't feel comfortable with, although honestly sometimes it's hard to see far enough ahead to know what you're getting yourself into until you're already committed.

So have you guys decided on a meet time yet? My schedule continues to evolve and there is a chance I can make it if everything comes together just right.

And if you guys decide to switch it to that Sunday it'd be even better. And ill just follow up beantown if he goes. Otherwise I'll have to get directions to there from lon beach

Awesome. Yes, this is for 10/23. I'm not sure yet if I can go (as the time has not yet been established), but when you get there be sure they know you're the one who will probably need help so they can give you extra attention.

As for directions, use Google Maps or whatever to direct you to N34 17.975 W117 27.400 . But basically it's 605 North to 10 East to 15 North for 20 miles then exit Cleghorn Road and turn right.

I am an early bird, personally. I like to get to the trail head around 9:00 to 10:00 am, do a couple of hours, stop for packed lunch, chat about what has gone on so far then head out for more wheeling. Depending on the time and desires of the group, we can maybe hit a diner or pizza place for a meal on the way down the mountain.

As I mentioned, I have my son's soccer game Sat. morning so I will not be able to get up there much before 11:00. If we all meet at 11:00 up at the trail head we should be good for a few hours of fun. Keep me posted so I know this timing will work out for everyone otherwise I can go up and look for you on the trails.

I like getting an early start too, but should we make it 10:30am at the trailhead so that 530ktm can join us, maybe meet up with us at the power tower while we're goofing off up there? I'd like to be home by 3:00pm for my evening hockey game, which means getting back on the road by 1:45pm (airing back up by 1:30pm), which makes for a bit of a tight schedule considering a few weeks ago when we hit Cleghorn we were there for four hours. If I wasn't in a hurry to get home, I'd be all for meeting up for pizza or something afterwards, but not this time. But who knows, it's a tough call for me but I just might opt for missing my hockey game in favor of a more relaxing enjoyable time on the trail with y'all.

One other thing, it really helps a lot to be able to communicate on the trail so I would encourage acquiring a CB radio if you don't already have one.

I am good with 11:00, that is not an issue. Already have the CB in the Jeep.

Alright 11 sounds good. I wouldn't mind staying later but that something we can worry about as we go. I don't have a cb so hopefully the cell with work.

Sounds like 11:00am at the trailhead works best. I'll be there.

I just installed my new rear bumper tire carrier with trail rack and jerry cans this weekend, adding about 250 lbs. of weight to my rear. I want to see how much that added weight negatively affects my offroad capabilities.

I also want to find out if my CB is still working well. I had to retune my antenna after adding all that new metal to the back.

Just make sure you are using a rubber washer between your antenna and mount. That way it's not grounding itself out.

Yah, I haven't changed the antenna mount which has that. It just needed retuning with all that 250 lbs. of new metal surrounding it.

Looks like an hour and a half drive from me. We can meet up off the 405 - exit Crenshaw, take a left off the ramp and there is a gas station across the next intersection. say meet there at 9:15 ish?

how much fuel do we need for this trail? mapquest says its 82 miles from me so if i fill up before i leave will i have enough gas to make it thru the trail and stuff?

The trail isn't very long, maybe 10 miles??? You might even have be enough gas to get you all the way back home. I usually like to gas up close to the trail off of Summit Ave from the 15. It's the first offramp after you pass the 210.

I'll be carrying 10 extra gallons in my two jerry cans, not because I think I might need it but just because I want to see the difference offroad with my new rear bumper fully loaded.

There are also some trails starting at Silverwood lake and continuing to Arrowhead lake. If you want to extend the ride a bit.

At this point it looks like I should be able to make this.

I have been to these trails and they are fun. Too bad we can not get the others to go back there but they seem to have a time limit for the afternoon. Maybe the next time we can hit these.

There is no reason that a few of us can't continue. We can decide then. As for coordinates, not exactly but I have a map. I can get some coordinates off it later tonight.
