Sacramento area?

Hi everyone!

I'm from the Philadelphia, PA area originally but am on a work assignment in the Sacramento, CA area for the next few months. I drove my '97 TJ cross country for the trip out and while I'm here wanted to check out some local trails. My TJ is rather standard so I'm looking for mostly beginner trails so I don't get into too much trouble. Any suggestions in the vicinity? Any meet-ups happing soon?

Sorry, I don't know what's around there, so I can't be of any help to you, but I just wanted to pop in and say welcome to California and to the forum. I hope someone else here can help you out.

But enough about me. Let me tell you about my Jeep.

There are a few trails up and around here. Im up the hill in EDH. There is the Prairie City OHV course and obstacle course. There is a good site to look at for Nor Cal trails.

California Trails

This site shows the most used trails and has then rated on difficulty. Hope this helps out

You can go to the back side of the rubicon or some trails going to rubicon. Icehouse road has great trails , Georgetown to uncle toms cabin has lots of trails. Get a map from the forest dpt. Hope that helps

OP, I'm in the same boat as you, looking for beginner runs. Any trips yet? Keep me in mind, I'm 15 minutes south of Sac.

I have a fun trail I need to explore this next summer starting at Sugar Bowl. From the lower parking lot next to the road is a little tunnel that you can drive through and will take you to Donner Lake. I am told that you can drive all the way to Truckee on these trails. When the snow clears I will find out!

First off, kudos to you for taking your TJ cross-country to Cali. thats badass dude! Secondly, there should be lots of trails you could explore on your way up the hills(Tahoe,rubicon area). I'm north of Sac, so I'm not a whole lot of help unless your up to going up I5 bout an hour where there is lots of easy, intermediate trails in the Mendocino National forest area. A friend of mine will be getting his new JKU sometime in January. He's in the Sac area and will hopefully break in his new rig by heading up north with me and a buddy or two for some easy offroading. This is what happens when you think your going on an easy trail.....My advise...go with friends!
