Callville Wash North Trail

Las Vegas, Nevada

Callville Wash Trails are located east of Las Vegas in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area(LMNRA). It is located near the historical site of Fort Callville. The LMNRA, operated by the National Park Service is located in both Nevada and Arizona. It follows the Colorado River corridor. The LMNRA includes Lake Mead and Lake Mohave, both reservoirs created by Hoover and Davis Dams plus their surrounding areas. Lake Mead was formed in 1935, less than a year before Hoover Dam construction was finished. In 1964, Congress approved the expanded area as the first National Recreation Area.

Sent by Brigham Young, Anson Call established Callville, as an outpost for the Mormon settlement, in December of 1864. Callville was used a miltary fort/garrison. In 1869, the garrison was shut down, due to the end of the war and lack of conflict with the Naitve Americans. After the railroads were completed linking the coasts, it made Callville obsolete and was abandoned. Structures could still be seen in the 1930s until the Colorado River was dammed to allow the filling of Lake Mead. Callville Bay Resort and Marina closely located to the historic site.

Dusy-Ershim Trail

Shaver Lake, California

If you haven't heard of the Dusy-Ershim trail yet, you will soon. Many believe this is the newest hardest multiday off-road trip you can do today. The trail is comprised of both overland and rock crawling. If you ask someone that has recently done the Rubicon, they will say this trail is about 3-6 times harder. The Dusy-Ershim offers some of the hardest wheeling around, from mile long rocky hill climbs, to very technical obstacles, to some of the most amazing camping & fishing you have ever done in your life. The views have something to be said about too. Just be warned, this isn't an easy trip, even the most built rigs will leave this trail with mechanical failure. Be prepared, because body damage is almost guaranteed, even for the best drivers. If you are up to the challenge, expect the trip to take you in the range of 3-5 days.

Hell Hill

Trabuco Canyon, California

Scary steep overland trail in the heart of Orange County. Unfortunately, the trail has been washed out for about 7 years and is more extreme today than anyone is willing to try.

Located about an hour southeast of Salt Lake City in the majestic Wasatch Mountain range, this trail offers a lot of adventure for any outdoor enthusiast. From the bottom you get to experience some of the amazing scenery in the Wasatch National Forest and work your way up the old mining road to some of the abandoned gold and silver mines. If you look hard enough you can find iron pyrite or fools gold laying around! If you are more extreme I have heard that you can get lucky panning in some of the streams. There is a story of a Jeeper who panned in one of these canyons and found just enough gold to pay for his expenses, so who knows what you may find! The Silver Bell mine is the main mine on this trail and you are more than welcome to enter at your own risk and explore some of the old tunnels, just make sure to bring plenty of flashlights with extra batteries and as always tread lightly! As you finish the trail you will also get to take in some great views of the surrounding mountains and overlook the Mineral Basin ski lift.

Length: 1.3 Miles
Duration: about 3 hours
Status: Open

Odessa Canyon

Barstow, California

Odessa Canyon is the flagship trail for Calico. Comprised of many hard obstacles with no bypasses, this trail will make you earn your trip to the top. On top of the difficulty, Odessa provides the best views in the area. Many people leave this trail only wanting to do it again. But be ready, this trail has a 7 foot waterfall, an extremely narrow rollover spot that you just have to see to believe, and a super tight off-camber canyon. With everything this trail offers, don't be surprised if the trail wreaks havoc on your vehicle.

Please note Odessa Canyon is very tight, and it is highly recommended that only a short narrow wheel base attempt this trail.

Tahuya / 84-S - Belfair, Washington
Technical Rating: 3-4
Difficulty: Easy
Length: 1.2 Miles
Duration: 40 minutes
Status: Open

Tahuya / 84-S

Belfair, Washington

Tahuya State Forest ORV area is a 4x4 destination for both beginners up to seasoned veterans of the trails. While this forest trail system does have some man made rock gardens, for the most part, the only hindrance to stock vehicles would be the depth of some of the standing water in the winter months. Of course if you are stock or only slightly lifted you might want to stay a spectator at the "Rock Gardens" as they were put in for more modified rigs. Tahuya has been nick-named "2-wheel Tahuya" as most of the trails are fairly easy, but that makes it a perfect place to gain some skills for beginners. There is not really a good map produced that shows all of the trails in this park. What makes it very confusing is that some are 4x4, some are for motorcycles and ATV's and some are just for walking and mountain biking. "Trail 84S" is a fairly technical trail that will test your skills at maneuvering over stumps, roots and shelved rock ledges. There are some pretty significant hill climbs and the tight turns around the trees can grab a fender if you aren't careful. This trail starts just off of "Trail 84N" and continues down to the south end of the park.

"G-3000" is actually not a 4x4 trail but a service road that gives you access to the south end side of the 4x4 trails and takes you though the middle of the park. Taking this route will lead you to the following 55 Trail, 84S Trail, JBX Trail, 84N Trail, Twin Rocks, and Yellow Jacket
