My wife and I call Southern California home and we love exploring the areas in and around the region. Those of us in Southern California understand the fast-paced lifestyle we live within and we love the escape going into nature offers. Seeing breathtaking views of mountain ranges and being disconnected from all the technology is a literal breath of fresh air for us. We find ourselves frequenting the Los Padres forest and San Bernardino mountains most often and enjoy the serenity of it. We started four-wheeling a little over a year ago with the purchase of our Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. We enjoy the challenge of taking an unconventional vehicle off-road and showing others what the platform is capable of. If we run into one another on the trail, honk and say hi, we enjoy talking with others and sharing our wheeling stories and adventures.

Fry Canyon Trail (08/17/2021)
Took this trail as a connector from highway 89 to the 17. STUNNING views all over. Large meadows are perfect for viewing wildlife. There are lots of dispersed camp sites along the trail on the side of the trail closer to highway 89. The sites looked great and relatively flat. Creek crossings were dry despite the monsoon season in full swing up there. No issues with mud. Definitely utilize this trail to cut time between the 89 and the 17, it’s well worth your time.
Schnebly Hill Road (08/17/2021)
Finally made it to Schnebly Hill and what an experience. The views from this trail are top notch. If you are in the area, do yourself a favor and make the time to drive this trail. The trail itself is extremely rocky as others have said so air down and be prepared to bounce around. A lot. But overall not technical by any means. Some words of caution we learned firsthand. We came during a very active monsoon season and got caught in a storm. If there is rain in the forecast make sure you are off the trail before it strikes because this particular area floods extremely fast. Within minutes we were surrounded by waterfalls on all sides of the surrounding walls and were driving through a sizable stream for the majority of the remaining trail. The water will push boulders/rocks from high up the mountain walls down on to the trail.
FR 153A (08/17/2021)
This trail is the crowing jewel of the Schnebly Hill area. The view from the top is hands down the greatest view I have experienced. We packed a lunch and ate on the edge with a view of the ant size vehicles down below. The trail is fairly technical but if you go slow you will be fine. Great off shoot from the Schnebly Hill Road. For those who may be wondering what kind of vehicle can make this, we ran it in a Cherokee trailhawk with a 2” lift and 31” tires and had zero issues
Fins and Things (04/21/2021)
Been wanting to come to Moab for years and finally made the trek. Only had time for one trail so Fins n Things it was. Beautiful scenery along the trail with moderate traffic on it. Cherokee Trailhawk did extremely well and surprised many people. The videos/pictures do not do justice to the steepness of the obstacles. Just go slow and you will be okay! Overall this trail is a must for first time visitors.
