Somewhere In Johnson Valley, CA a trail between California and Africa, surrounded by rocks and hard compact dirt a 2012 Rubicon and a 2010 sport try to straddle the rocky terrain as they navigate to their destination.

Nice pic selection pluke, we're fortunate to live in a area where we have those choices.

Cleghorn is a great stocker trail. It has bypasses on most of the more difficult trails, the last time we had a group of jeeps on it, a Ford Raptor came along with up and made it thru. You'll be fine. If you run it from the 15 freeway to hwy 138, the last section has a few areas to watch, just take your time, and listen to spotters.

I've been to most of those. Not the menifee ohv, but have found the wildomar ohv. Pretty easy trails for bee canyon and main divide, just cruising. I prefer some obstacles for excitement. Big bear trails have offered that but it does take a couple hours to get up there. Anything south? Closer to Temecula?

I havn't really found anything out here, I usually just go up on Main Divide if I'm bored. We're kind of stuck in the middle of all the good spots here in Temecula, Big Bear to the north, and Anza Borrego to the East. There might be some stuff over by Palomar, but I'd have to look into it.

Just remembered, my dad was telling me there are a bunch of trails out in Warner Springs and that general area.

Five of us went up to Lightening Ridge trail Saturday. The trail hasn't been ran in a while, parts were overgrown to the point of losing sight of the trail, quite a few large trees fell in the trail, but we had a great day there! We even got some winch use! If you've never been on this trail, it's worth the trip for sure. Buck, Bill, Jesse, and Jeremy...thanks for all the help and good times!
This trail is not marked or listed on any map, but does cross 2N93, and goes up to Sugarloaf mountain. Its acessable from hwy 38. Back side if big bear.

FYI: If you hit Mainline on the Corona side: the section at Beeks place/ the weather beacon will be closed Monday Thru Saturday for work. They're filling In some of the side trails for pipe looks like. Boo.
But you can still get down on Bedford Canyon road. (or something like that.) you'll come out at Dos Lagos. The forest service guy said that one will stay open. We hit Holy Jim to Mainline this afternoon. Good thing it was a sunday.....

Looks like a great time. Let me know next time you're going if you want a extra. I seem to end up hitting those trails by myself and would rather have a second.

There are two parallel trails. One has difficult sections; the other is fire road. Perfect for everyone. Search this forum section- 'Cleghorn San Bernardino". We just ran it a couple of months ago and there are a ton of pics.

So I went up there to watch a meteor shower with some friends was a great night we ended up stopping at 4 corners cause we didn't feel like going to the top although the gate was open. Was a gorgeous night

The section of 2N33/Pilot Rock that normally had 3 climb options is now gated/blocked off in several spots. The left side is closed. The center is still open- but not easy without lockers as before. The bypass- when taken to the right of the big boulder- is easy for any Jeep with decent tires. There is a gate on the bypass- but it won't be in your way. Hard to see from the bottom.
(Long wheel based trucks- that is a different story. The bypass is not friendly to anyone with a truck now). Can't get my video to load or I'd show you why a Jeep is better than a Tacoma.

Here. You can barely see the gate on the far right where the bypass is.

Any moderate trails in the San Diego Area? I have an almost stock YJ. Slightly larger tires, I like sand/dirt.

Anyone that goes out to holy jim I found a pretty good trail out there off to the left side. To much for a stock jeep I went up a while but it was night I think it can go to the peak. Lots of steep hills huge ruts big switchbacks. It's great I found it when it was raining but you can barely even get up it when it's wet even on 33 km2 I was still close to sliding off the edge. It looks like it used to be blocked by a gate that's now open. This may be old news but new to me haha
