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.

My Garage (4)

Lift Size: 4"
Tire Size: 35"
The vehicle he drives the most is a 2001 Jeep Wrangler TJ with a 4.0, 35's Falken Mud Terrain, and 4-inch ProComp lift. This Jeep does have open diffs which is something that Josh really enjoys. Josh was driving fully locked up vehicles so long that driving the open vehicle is adding the extra challenge and bring a whole new life to some of the older trails.

Lift Size: 4.5"
Tire Size: 38"
His other jeep which is currently in testing and being used on trail. This is a 79 CJ 7 with a 4.0 Stroker (4.7), 38's falken's, Raceline Beadlocks, Dana 60 HD Front, 14 Bolt Rear, Detroit's, NV4500, Atlas, Custom Built 4 link and 3 link Suspension, 18" Coil Overs, Spuderwebshade, custom belly armor, and the list goes on. Before all the cool toys were added this Jeep, Josh has successfully either created or traversed almost every trail in Southern California.

Lift Size: Stock
Tire Size: 35"
As for the last vehicle, it is a 2002 Ford F250 Diesel 4x4 CrewCab. It might not be a rock crawler but Josh does use this vehicle for trails rating 1-4 and will tow his jeeps through trails up to a 4 rating to get to campsites that are very remote. He did recently replace the rims with 20" Raceline Wheels and Falken A/T tires.

Left Hand Collet Road (05/14/2021)
Ran the trail today. The rating is a bit high as the group ran it in 2wd. The rock was pretty awesome. We posed for photos and currently sitting on top of the bluff right now.
Nellis Dunes (05/12/2021)
This might be the only trail rougher than Schnebly Hill, but the view is something else.

1N09 - City Creek (04/26/2021)
The gate was open and there was a large trash bin outside the gate. Maybe time for a much-needed trail cleanup.
Lockwood Creek Trail / 20W06 / 127 (04/26/2021)
Open for the season
2N47 - Cleghorn Ridge (04/26/2021)
Ran the trail with a friend in his XJ. IT was cold and windy so we didn't stick around very long. But we still ran all the offshoots. Looks like that truck that was dragged down the hill on the roof was left out there. I hope someone calls the police and shows them that video. Don't leave your trash behind.
3N16 - Holcomb Valley (04/26/2021)
Still a dirt road through the forest. But at least it is a nice drive.
3N14 - Coxey Road (04/26/2021)
Chose this option vs the alternative of going down the asphual. Takes a little longer but well worth it.
Miller Jeep Trail / 20W06 / 129 (04/26/2021)
Open for the season
3N93 - Holcomb Creek Trail (04/24/2021)
Ran the trail, overall the trail conditionals are about the same as last year.
2N47 - Cleghorn Ridge (04/10/2021)
Did a quick run of the trail to see how it is. The main path is pretty torn up and would expect the forest service soon to regrade it. All in all it is a little worse then before. Increased the lower rating to a 3 from a 2 and leaving the hard rating at a 6.
Devil's Canyon (04/05/2021)
Just ran it again. What a fun trail. We did a lot better this time as we finished in the daylight. We had 4 vehicle failures but lucky for us, all were easily fixable and we had the parts.

Devil's Canyon (02/18/2021)
Got to run the trail a second time. I feel lucky as this is such a great trail. The video is from our previous trip
The Hex (02/15/2021)
Love this trail, we ended up breaking a front axle, but we were able to return the next day and run it
Painted Gorge Road (02/10/2021)
Didn't realize this area was here. I want to go back and make a weekend of it.
3N22 - Elliott Ranch (02/02/2021)
I have used this trail a few times now to get around traffic or double back after doing cleghorn. It is a great little trail but you have to watch out of OHV's.
Front Door - Comp Hill (02/01/2021)
Quick update to the trail
South Fork Palm Wash (02/01/2021)
This is probably one of the coolest trails in the area. I never knew it was there and only heard the stories. Now it is a must-stop every time we go.
2N56 - Sheep Canyon (01/31/2021)
Easy trail
Voodoo (01/28/2021)
Not what I was hoping for with a name like voodoo. Maybe should be call boohoo. But the side trails are great.
Tilted Table (01/28/2021)
Its a connector route.
Trail 201 (01/28/2021)
Its better than taking the asphalt.
Connector Road (01/28/2021)
Point a to point b
Voodoo Rock Garden (01/28/2021)
Not bad, this is a lot of fun. This is a great side detour when in the area and great for all levels of people.
Craptastic (01/27/2021)
Didn't run the trail as it looked too extreme for the group I was with. But I wouldn't mind going back and giving it a try.
Sand Dam and Pass (01/26/2021)
Sand Dam is worth seeing at least once. Pretty cool area.
Superstitions Sand Dunes (01/26/2021)
This area was a ton of fun. You don't get to play in sand dunes very often that are this large.
Mine Bypass (01/25/2021)
It's cool as in I have never done it, but overall neat little trail.
3N16 - Holcomb Valley (01/24/2021)
Ran up for a snow run. Went west to east starting at 3N14 but as we neared Holcomb Valley the road iced over making it impossible to continue on. Saw several people slide into each other which our plan was to get off the trail as fast as we can.
Bowen Ranch Road (01/24/2021)
Good to know where this is at. A shortcut to the hills if you know where you can start at. It was snowing on the way out yesterday.
3N14 - Coxey Road (01/24/2021)
Let it snow. Ran up the trail for a snow run. It was a ton of fun.
Mine Trail (01/21/2021)
Neat little canyon. I like the dispersed camping spots.
Mine Loop (01/21/2021)
Very fun little trail. I was shocked when we fell upon this. Had a blast.
Giant Rock (01/20/2021)
Something everyone should do at least once
Mojave Road (01/14/2021)
Old Trail Video
3S04 - Main Divide South - Santiago Peak (aka Saddleback Mountain) (01/13/2021)
Reports show the trail has been reopened.
5S01 - Indian Truck Trail (01/13/2021)
Reports show the trail has been reopened.
Holy Cross (01/12/2021)
This was very interesting as you normally don't see things like this. Well worth it.
The Void (01/12/2021)
I really enjoyed these sand dunes over the others in the area.
Wheeler Road (01/11/2021)
Been a long time since i have been out there. We ended up camping for a full week out there. Just the wife and kiddo. It was pretty nice.
Little Blair Valley (01/04/2021)
Updated the photos for the exit. Great little trail.
3N34 - Dishpan Springs (12/16/2020)
Sounds like the gate is closed to the road below the trail. The trail is open and you can access the trail via the other trails in the area. Use the map feature above to find ways around the locked gate.
Lava Tube Road (12/09/2020)
Stopped for the first time here, how cool
Jack Hammer (12/07/2020)
Ran the trail with some good friends and had a blast. The trail was hard like always and I can't wait to go back again. One guy in our group did end up winching 4 times I believe. But as I always say, the ones that struggle the most are having the most fun.
Jack and Sledge Connector (12/07/2020)
Was up on Jack the other day having a little fun.
Turkey Claw - Johnson Valley (11/30/2020)
Did a fast run up the trail and it was a ton of fun. Can't want to go back.
SOS - Johnson Valley (11/30/2020)
Ran up to the second early exit then headed over to blue berry
Lower Johnson (Little Johnson) (11/30/2020)
Cool little trail, its been a while since I ran it.
Upper Johnson (Big Johnson) (11/30/2020)
It's been a long time since I did this trail. It was a good day.
Chocolate Thunder (11/30/2020)
The trail is super torn up from Thanksgiving up there. The holes behind the waterfalls are giant.
Aftershock (11/30/2020)
So we ran this trail and wow it was fun. Been too long as we rarely head that far back up the canyon.
Aftershock (11/30/2020)
Just a little proof Aftershock hasn't changed much since 2001. As you can compare, the main obstacle is exactly the same.
Bismarck’s Back Door (11/30/2020)
1st time doing this new path. It was a pretty cool little drive up the canyon and the views from the top were pretty awesome.
Aftershock (11/27/2020)
Fun times, just ran it and loved it.
Off-Your-Rocker (11/27/2020)
Quick run up to the true ending as now told. Will remap soon.... It gets harder hahahahhaaahaha
Wrecking Ball (11/27/2020)
Ran it twice now, first time 5 hours, second time 15 minutes....
Mojave Road (11/20/2020)
Ran the trail and it was a good time. Had a few issues that slowed us down but didn't stop us. Can't wait to go back.
Arroyo Seco Del Diablo Trail (11/20/2020)
Ran up the trail for a quick remap. Several new landslides are there which might cause issues in the winter and spring. Please be careful when on this trail.
Sandstone Canyon (11/20/2020)
Ran the trail, feel it might be at the easiest it has been in a long time in the lower half. The middle landslide is getting really easy too. But be warned, someone dug out the backside of it so with the sand it is easy to slide into a rock and hit your door.
Afton Canyon (11/20/2020)
Ran the trail and had a ton of fun. THe water crossing is filled in which sort of sucks. But besides that it was a good time.
Odessa Doran Scenic Loop Lower (11/04/2020)
Did a quick drive through the other day as I headed to the the harder trail. One of the camping areas was packed with like 20 RV's
