    Lately I have been 'wheeling on my "secret locale" off of Highway 56, but Sunday I went up to the Big Bear Lake/Lake Arrowhead area. Man, that was cool! Any other places that aren't all Baja stuff?

    call 916-324-4442, and ask for the "Guide to Off-Highway Vehicle Areas". it lists all the state and local areas, and what is allowed there (MC's, Dune Buggies, 4x4, etc).
    i can't get to your profile right now, so i don't know where you are exactly, but i've got a map on the wall next to my desk. there's quite a few in SoCal.

    I've been meaning to go to that secret wheeling place, but i've been busy. I too would like some info on new wheeling places. I live near el cajon and jamul. I think we have to bust out a why 2 k5 san diego style some time. How about those Chargers? Yeah, they suck.

    Almost forgot, my favorite place right now is Jacumba. Directions:
    Take 8 east towards el centro

    Get off at koh ho pah (or something like that) exit, its like 6 or 7 miles past the jacumba exit.

    Follow road to right.

    Turn right at the stop sign and go down the road like 200 yards and turn left into a dirt area. Follow the road up the mountain and enjoy. This side has rock and hillclimbs. If you go under the freeway to the other side theres some sand and hillclimbs. Its a fun area to explore.

    Is that guide to offroad area free? if not how much is it?

    It's free, and yes, the Chargers do suck. I am in the Marines and so am only here for another year. However, I hate to sound rude, but being from Michigan, it's nice to see that there are teams the Lions can beat.

    I live in Yucca Valley (near 29 Palms). I go wheelin back way to Big Bear and in Fawnskin all the time. You need to check out the John Bull trail. It's a 4+ trail.If you are up there stop at the Discovery Center in the north side of the lake and pick up a Side Kick map. It shows many trails and difficulty levels. There is a lot of desert wheelin out here like the "Hammers". If anyone is out here we wheel on Sundays. Email me I'm always ready to go

    There is a sweet place in ventura county. It backs up to the Hungry Valley rec. area. Its called lockwood creek. There is a good mix of all types of wheeling. I'm going to try a get a trip together this summer after my axle swap. I'll post it then.

    When all else fails MASH the skinny pedal!

    Report from last weekend. killer stuff near East Chula Vista. Take the 805 south to 905 E or Orange Ave E. You will see a lot of construction out there so keep an eye out for the Earth movers. anyway there is killer hill climbs, high speed runs and MUD MUD MUD. you can get there via the Coors Amphitheatre too. Oh yeah don't be afraid to drive over some curbs and drive by no trespassing signs to get on the site. it was so damn fun.!@!!!!!
