Hey Guys,

I figured you guys are the best people to ask. What are some good trails near the Ojai area? I'm planning on going camping at Wheeler Gorge in the near future and I would love to take my X wheeling up there. Looking for trails that my stock X could handle. Please let me know when you have a chance.

Thanks,
vegasxterra

On a scale of 1-10
#3 4WD EASY / #4 4WD EASY

There is one optional shelf climb section on Nordhoff Ridge that goes up to the lookup tower (loose faint kind of an overgrown track) that is a #5 moderate. I didnít have any problems /wo a lift but you may need a bit of mo on the last step with the loose rock to get over.

Post up when you're going, there some folks that live near by that that might join you.

Hey, I got a great book on Southern California off road trails at AAA. It's also available from Amazon. "Backcountry Adventures: Southern California" by Massey & Wilson. It describes the trail, it's degree of difficulty and has GPS coordinates and time it would take you to drive the trail. I think they have one for Northern California, and maybe Nevada. Central California is included in the So. Ca. book.lj

I checked, Amazon.com has one for N. Ca, So. Ca, Utah, and Arizona. Like I said really good book. I even gave one as a gift to friends that have a jeep, and like off roading. Well worth the $. lj

I'll try AAA, they're right down the street from my work. NV seems to have alot of trails, but no one really knows about them. With Nellis AFB being close by my house, im afraid of getting shot at if i get too far back into the hills. They do alot of ammunitions testing back in the hills behind my house. Plus Area 51 isn't too far away neither, lol. I'll definitely pick up some maps. Thanks!!

Hey, once thing you need to get the permit during a weekday, the ranger station in Ojai is closed on the weekends and that is where you get the permit. one thing, you are required to have 4wd for these trails, and you are required to be in 4wd from the moment you enter the gates. I'm trying to remember if they told me once that they check to make sure you have 4wd. either way, if you go I will come with you because you have to drive right by my house to get there smile and depending on when you go I might be able to go up and get a permit.
