Marc Nitz is a southern California native who loves exploring the outdoors. This is in large part due to his parents' love of summer road trips. Each summer the Nitz clan would venture out for at least one week driving and camping to assorted U.S. destinations west of the Rocky Mountains. Marc bought his first 4x4 at 17 years old and began seeking out more places off the beaten path. Now 30 years later, Marc explores the countryside with a family of his own. Some of Marc's favorite trails include California's Titus Canyon Road and the Pleasant Canyon Loop Trail, Colorado's Alpine Loop, and Utah's White Rim Trail. Most of all, Marc enjoys meeting fellow off-roaders and he is affiliated with a few 4X4 clubs in Southern California that has allowed him to do just that.

Bedford Road (aka Bedford Motorway) (07/14/2021)
I've been following activity on this trail due to conflicts with a property owner and the Bedford Road bisecting his property. As of today, Cleveland National Forest rangers have officially closed the trail until further notice. The GPX track of this trail does not include the section that crosses through the homeowner's property. The property is closer to the paved portion and near the other houses in the area (see photo).
