I live in South Cali and was wondering if there are any Southerners here that trail ride alot? I haven't done any trail riding yet and was thinking about getting into it? Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

There are lots of places to go.

Southern California Off Road 4-Wheeling Trails and Maps - Where To Ride 4x4 Trucks and 4WD SUVs

I usually do all my off roading while im hunting though. I dont really visit trails just for off roading purposes.

Well I am new to all this so I haven't done any trail riding as of yet. I will look over that link you gave me. I don't hunt so my riding will be for fun mostly.

Get the Guide to Southern California Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails by Charles A. Wells. There are 75 trails ranging from easy to difficult. Your best bet would be to do a Google for Southern California 4x4 or Jeep clubs and hook up with them. You seem to be new at this and hanging with a group is your best way to get started. There's more to hitting the trail than following a map. The first rule is never go alone and to have recovery straps, tools, food and water.

Here's a link to the book I mentioned....

Guide to Southern California Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails [0-9664976-4-3] - $24.95

Good luck and happy trails!!

Thanks AZ for all the info so far. I am liking this forum already

I am still pondering the idea of being really into it. I've just been reading some trail runs here and seeing the pics and it looks fun. I need to get the most use out of my jeep some way and I think this is it.
