Cleveland National Forest- Socal California

Postby Jeff_H3 » Wed Nov 14, 2007 8:48 pm

Has anyone run any trails in the Cleveland National Forest? According to the websites there a plenty of trails and camps, but I am having trouble getting good info and maps on the OHV trails. It would be nice to have an area less then an hour away from OC.

Off the top of my head , there is Oriflamme Canyon, and I believe Jasper Creek?

A lot of the trails lead down into the Anza-Borrego State Park

Also, there is a shelf road run on Palomar Mountain called "Palomar Mountain divide"

I am wondering how that road looks because I hear almost the entire mountain burned :o :o :o :o

We should still run that sometime. Would be pretty cool to do a SoCal HXC Hummer Happening there and have all the SoCaler's show up.

When I was at the Hummmer of Tustin thing last week, one of the organizers was talking about how they want to eventually want to sponser more skilled Hummer Happenings out there.

It is closed now because of the fire but when it opens up we should go.

I was just taking a look at those maps I posted above. There is a heck of a lot of Dirt Road/ Native Surface Roads and Unimproved roads not recommended for passenger vehicles. Throught all the Clevland National Forest.

Since our Hummers are street leagal registeted vehicles we should be allowed on those roads as long as we stay on the roads and don't nessesarily need an ohv area. I would imagine some of those roads might be fun considering they are not always at the peak of matainence.

Yeah, I agree they could be fun to explore :)

Most will be just dirt roads with washouts, but it is the few challenging finds that makes it an adventure 8)

I wanted to go to the top of Saddleback Mountain but like most of the trails I believe are closed due to the fire. Do you think the H2 is too big for the trails to the top of Saddleback Mountain?

An H2 could do it with a very careful driver who is not afraid of heights. :D
