Miller Jeep Trail - June 11, 2016

TTORA SO-CAL

presents

Miller Jeep Trail



Miller Jeep Trail is located off Interstate 5 about an hour's drive north of Los Angeles. It is quite short -- only three miles, but to get there you first have to take the much longer Lockwood Mountain Trail, which winds over several mountain ridges taking you from the Lockwood Valley to Lockwood Flat. Then the Miller Trail takes you straight up the side of Alamo Mountain. Most of the trails around LA are made up of rocks and shrubs, but this trail takes you up amongst the trees through the Los Padres National Forest.

The trail covers a lot of ground. You will go up and down the local mountains a few times before you make the final ascent. The final ascent up Alamo Mtn is the most difficult section of the trail. It gets steep, loose and rocky with some potential for hitting the low points and rocker panels on stock rigs pretty hard.
More on Miller

After we complete Miller, we usually hang out at the "skills" area and play around.

Vehicle Minimum Requirements: 4WD, sliders/skids, tow points, 31" tires w/locker

Stock rigs should anticipate some scrapes and bruises.

Meet Point:
Flying J Truck Stop
42810 Frazier Mtn. Park Road
Lebec, CA 93243
N34 49.025 W118 53.150

You'll be able to fuel up here as well as get ice and lunch stuff.

Meet Time: 9:00 am

Total time on the trail varies by group size, but 4-6hrs is typical. We will be stopping briefly for a lunch break. It'll be very warm so pack a few extra bottles of water!!

I can't wait till I have the lift to do this.

I'm guessing you are referring to the switchback section. That is one of the most challenging and usually requires good tires and sometimes a locker.

I actually ended up going down miller heep rather than going up like you're supposed to. We started our day in Hungry Valley and took the trail that went up the side of the mountain there. We're trying to find a way back down into Frazier and my gps said the quickest route ended up taking us down Miller Jeep. we didn't realize until we were halfway down and a couple of jeeps coming up. I got to a point where if I were to continue straight I would have basically been running into a 4-foot wall. I realize this would be different going up.

Wow! This is already looking like a big group. I'm really bummed I have to miss this. I always have to juggle this run with my niece's birthday and my mother-in-law's birthday. MJT didn't win this year.

I have read the rules, and have accepted a majority of them. There are 1-2 I will be breaking, but it will not affect the group. I appreciate your time, and look forward to meeting up with this fantastic group.

Yup. I'm Marc's +1 so you can lose that, as you already have me listed separately.
I'm excited for this trip!

Pretty excited to do this. I did this on a dirt bike in the 80s and it was tough.
