Hi guys. I have been around on this forum before and you've helped me with troubleshootings for my 2000 XJ Limited but I have just added a new member to my family. This weekend I replaced my 95 Altima with a pristene 2002 TJ Sahara.





I was wondering if anyone could recommend some trails near me [Modesto, CA] cause I am wanting to take the TJ out next weekend for some light wheelin'.... I am pretty much a newb to wheelin' and wanted to go on some intermediate trails and was hoping this forum would have some in mind since its partnered with californiajeeper.com

Any recommendations to get me into some off-road fun?

Everything I'd recommend is probably under 6' of snow about now. I'm not sure what's in your immediate area, but after the spring thaw, I'd check out Corral Hollow and the Slick Rock Road. They're both in Calaveras County and a stock TJ shouldn't have any problems (Corral Hollow is a bit easier.) Wink

Anything you could think of that I could hit this weekend? Is Carnegie a good place to go? I heard it can be swamped with Dirt Bikes.

I've never been to Carnegie but I know somebody who hydrolocked his engine there - give them a call before you go because it says they sometimes close during bad weather - (925) 447-9027

Also, you might want to look at Prarie City.

Clear Creek Management Area is my favorite place to explore... it's between Coalinga and King City at the southern edge of San Benito County. Molina Ghost Run is next weekend, 3/17,18,19. Check out http://www.cal4wheel.com/ for details, or http://www.picacho.org.

Lots of mud to play in, and miles upon miles of trails.

The Shaver Lake area east of Fresno has a ton of trails to challenge beginners and those with more heavily modified rigs (Swamp Lake, Coyote, Strawberry).

I took my stock LJ up to Brewer Lake. Nice run, not too difficult. Bald Mountain is a great run as well.
