    Hey guys, i know there is quite a few guys on here from So-Cal, but what about the middle or Nor-Cal...i wanna go find some real trails, not just some off road park...any one know of any in the middle or more north than the other CA trails that are popular?

    The closes place to you that I can think of is stoneyford, its about an hour and a half from you, ive never gone wheeling there before but ive seen some video posted on another web site, looks like a good area, or as others have said, try the rubicon.

    The sierras are full of trails. Just go explore. Here is a hint. Go to a forestry station or look it up online and get all the National forest maps in your area. Always take a friend with another rig and wheel during the day and camp at night in a different location. Or you can play around at Carnige or Hollister hills. Tahoe National Forest has tons of trails from beginner to difficult. Plus there are books out there for Cali wheeling that rate and describe the trails and even give you location and directions. Pick your poison. There are so many trails around you that it will take you years to hit them all.

    we found out if you plan on trying the rubicon, better back some metal, battery powered drills, bolts, and an onboard welder.
    heres our trail fix to my cracked frame..

    The cool thing i've learned about ohv parks is if you break its relatively easy to get parts and fix or worst case have to tow strap you back out to the pavement, so OHV parks are great testing grounds to try and find your weak link. Rubicon trail and others like dusy ershim, you better go prepared.. if you break, you're out in the middle of nowhere.

    I'm south east of you, about an hour away here in Modesto. I don't really know of a lot of different trails. I liked Hollister a lot. I have heard there are some decent trails up around Strawberry, I've wondered if it's the same trail I snowmobile on during the winter months.
