Highlights

Highlight: 7S32 - Voyager Rock
Voyager Rock Campground, also known as Courtwright Campground is a great place to escape when looking for the ultimate camping destination. With plenty of dispersed camping and an improved campground, there is no doubt why many people seek out this trail for a weekend to relax on. Along the route, you will have some of the best views in Southern California including towering granite mountains, lush forest, and expansive lakes. Outside the camping, this is also the gateway to one of the hardest trails in America, The Dusy-Ershim. If you plan on visiting the Voyager Rock area, please be prepared for lots of hiking, off-roading, fishing, and memories.

We did this trail in a Jeep Commander with a brand new 2” lift. It was great fun. Trail was clean of tree falls and other unexpected obstacles. Parts of the trail were pretty rough for our rig, but we made it without any vehicle damage. We’re happy with our lift. I am happy to announce that two pit toilets have been added to Voyager Campground. Bring your own toilet paper, of course, in case the provided rolls are gone. There are no garbage cans. Plan to pack it in, pack it out.

Mapping Crew - California

Joshua Noesser grew up in Southern California but has lived in different parts of the country during his young adult life. Josh was first turned to four wheeling when he road with one of his friends dad up Surprise Canyon in the Panamint Valley at age14. After nearly 3 different roll overs later and a half dozen intense waterfalls, Josh was hooked. At 16 he purchased his first Jeep a CJ 7 and by 17 was putting his first locker in it. Currently, Josh is the owner and CEO of Nybble, an IT Solutions Company based in Orange County, California. Nybble isn't your normal IT company where everyone stays in and plays video games. Nybble's average company trip is out on the trails since a good amount of his staff enjoy wheeling too. As Josh likes to say, he offers the only IT Company with the ability to provide services in extreme locations. "If you want a server at the top of The Hammers, we will take care of that for you." Today you can find Josh out on the trail behind the wheel in one of his three different off-road vehicles. See the vehicles below for more information. If you ever run into Josh, please say high, he is a very friendly person and is always happy to have a new person join the group.
