Miller Jeep Trail - June 22, 2019

TTORA SO-CAL

presents

Miller Jeep Trail


Note the revised date!

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 warm so pack a few extra bottles of water!!

I am thinking about this one, I know it has been some time since I've been out with TTORA but with a recent change in my schedule I may have more free time. So write me in just need to check out the Ghost to make sure it has no issues

So now that I'm on board with this trip, I'm working on dragging a few friends out too.
