Sandstone Canyon is a fun route for the more experienced off-roader. This overland trail offers some difficult four wheeling along with some of the most breathtaking views. But don't let your experience level stop you from trying this trail. Even though there are several rock slides, the first couple rock slides can be easily traversed in most capable 4x4 vehicles. Once in the canyon you will be struck with awe inspiring views of 300+ foot plus sand stone walls towering over just a few feet wide trail. Whether your are a Jeep person, Toyota lover, rock crawling junky, die hard overlander, or just looking for the most epic camping spot, Sandstone Canyon should be your next stop when traveling near Palm Springs in the low desert of Anza Borrego in Southern California.

Saran Wrap

Colorado Springs, Colorado

Saran Wrap (FS 370D) is a 4WD trail located within the Pike National Forest approximately 15 miles southwest of Colorado Springs. The Pike National Forest contains a myriad of trails which provide a broad spectrum of outdoor recreational opportunities. The area is popular among OHV users, mountain bikers, hikers, and equestrians. The trail network includes mild trails suitable for stock vehicles (it is not uncommon to see ordinary passenger sedans and minivans on some trails) in addition to genuine 4WD tracks such as Mount Baldy (FS 379), Eagle Rock (FS 370C), and Saran Wrap (FS 370D) that traverse higher elevations and contain noteworthy obstacles. Accessibility and panoramic mountain views are the greatest attractions to this area.

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.

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. "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

Tower Arch - Moab, Utah
Technical Rating: 3-4
Difficulty: Easy
Length: 3.4 Miles
Duration: about 2 hours
Status: Open

Tower Arch

Moab, Utah

Situated just outside Moab is Arches National Park. Arches is a major tourist destination known for its many sandstone arches that seem to defy the laws of nature. However, most of these famous arches are easily accessible from the main paved road and that’s typically where the crowds flock. Arches is not widely considered a Jeeping destination because it does not contain many off-road trails within its boundaries. In one sense that’s a bummer, but another way to look at it is that all the Moab Jeep fanatics and big outfits won’t put Arches on their radar, which means that what is available may be wide open for the taking.

A short hike over to Tower Arch, Parallel Arch, The Marching Men, and Anniversary Arch make this trail a must do.

18N25 - Packsaddle Trail

Upper Lake, California

Packsaddle Trail, near Lake Pillsbury in the southwest part of the Mendocino National Forest in Northern California, starts and ends at intersections with M1 - Elk Mountain Road, and thus presents an opportunity to bypass a good portion of the heavily washboarded Elk Mountain Road. It is a quieter, smoother, more peaceful route with one exceptional lookout spot, and spends much of its time winding through deep Ponderosa Pine forest. The lookout spot presents a fine 180 degree view towards the east, with seemingly endless rolling, forested hills disappearing forever into the distance. Hull Mountain is prominent to the northeast.
