I wish! I used to live in Morrow Bay for a while and loved it, some sweet spots up there. You shouldnt have any problems finding Toyota friends. Any suggestions on good trails in that area? I might make my way up the coast in the summer.

theres Hi Mountain road behind lake lopez which takes you to pozo. On top of the ridge there is a jeep trail that is pretty fun, nothing too crazy though. then there is pismo and pozo. pozo is probably your best bet for trails its about 40 minutes from slo. i see that your from san diego, im moving there this summer to go to SDSU. Any good local stuff or do you have to drive aways?

We've got everything. Mountains about 30-40 min, desert about 1-1 1/2hours, Baja 30 min to the boarder. I Wish I had some good pictures, Here is one my friend sent me of the high desert nearby.

But if you're going to State you'll be way to busy to go wheeling. Party! :xozzy:

that pic is devils canyon, SAS 35"s minimum unless you are crazy then 33's.

There is evry kind of wheeling here, closest is a nice fun sliders recomended trail about 30 mins form SDSU
then there is some fun stuff about 1 east, more rock crawling stuff.
the desert is wide open and crawlin stuff 1.5 hrs.

and of course there is baja right next door if you have the cajones.

I'm in PB, there is no life east of the 5;)

ok so it sounds like there are a lot of choices. i personally like the dunes and high speed stuff but then again it is fun to go on a trail and test out the articulation and check out the views. im not a big surfer but i like the beach. dirt bikes and quads and offroading is more my style which it sounds like there is plenty of everything there

You should check out the Nacimiento-Ferguson Road between you and Big Sur (Los Padres National Forest). There are a few trails off of that road and some killer camping spots.

If you pass Salmon Creek along the 1 on your way to go wheeling, stop and check out the cave at the top of the waterfall. I sure youve been there if you live in SLO. Willow creek is cool to explore too. Theres a cable bridge that leads to an old house foundation up in the hills there good place to camp.

Salmon creek is not a 4x spot its just a cool place to check out. I Think its about an hour north of Ragged Point, its one of those big horseshoe turns along the 1 where a river cut out the cliffs. you can usually see a waterfall from the Hywy. If you hike back about 75 yards there is a cool spot to camp near the water. ive never been harrased there before but it wouldnt hurt to get a wildernest adventure pass. :camping:

I was just there last week, ran a ton of the trails along the old coastal ridge route, down to Los Burros? rd. It's realy nice up there, nothing too hard. I came in from the east side of the road and the 101, when you get to Fort Hunnter Ligget base entrance you can get a pass to go accross the base to the other side of Nacimiento-Ferguson road and take that up there.. you need to have your registration, drivers lic, and insurance, and they may search your vehical, but if they are not doing any training in that area they will let you cut across. Just no playing with the tanks, they time you to make sure you don't play around on the base... plus they may use you as a target if you stray off the road...

You could probably spend days on all the trails off the southern portion from Nacimiento, and you get some awesome coastal view too. I go up to SLO about every other week for a day or two for my work, but I'm usualy driving the Yaris since it gets way way better milage than the FJ on 34's..
