Corral Canyon




The Corral Canyon OHV Area is located near the town of Pine Valley. Within this area, the Corral Canyon and Bobcat Meadows campgrounds give you access to over 51 miles of OHV trails. These trails, which run across the Cleveland National Forest, offer you a mix of awesome scenery and test of skills. This place has a beauty of its own and is a big draw with visitors to the Cleveland National Forest. Your drive through the Corral Canyon Open OHV Area will offer many scenic views of the valley below. The main attraction trails in Corral Canyon include Bronco Peak, Bronco Peak Connector, Gunslinger, and Sidewinder.

As the trails vary in elevation it offers a lot of adventure to beginners as well as seasoned wheelers. The terrain offers many surprises and driving around in a laid back manner is not recommended. Be alert for oncoming vehicles at all times. If you haven't had to chance to put some racing stripes on your truck, Corral Canyon will do that for you.

Bronco Peak
This is a very technical four-wheel drive trail. Oversize tires and a lift are recommended. There is a possibility of damage to full size trucks. Short wheelbase vehicles are preferred, but light trucks can make it through with no damage as well.

Connector
This is a difficult trail in the Corral Canyon OHV area. It can be started at the campground, going through to Bronco Peak or run downhill from Bronco Peak to the campground. Oversize tires and a lift are required, with lockers required if running it uphill. Sliders are highly reccomended to avoid damage. The main feature is the steep wedge. If not done carefully, it can end up in a rollover. There are a few other off-camber situations and difficult terrain.

Sidewinder
This is a moderate trail in the Corral Canyon OHV area. There are several steep rock climbs and sharp dropoffs that make up most of the challenge. The trail is a good warmup for Bronco Peak and the connector. Body damage is unlikely.



Minimum Requirements:
Perimeter Roads- 4WD

Sidewinder/Bronco Peak- 32s, 1 locker(recommended), sliders and armor

Gunslinger- 33s, 1 locker, sliders and armor

Connector- 35s, locked f/r, sliders and armor

Meet Point:
Four Corners

Go east on I8 about 30 miles to Buckman Springs Road (Exit 51). Go south on Buckman Springs Road about 3.25 miles. You will pass Mountain Empire High School on your left and a Forest Service facility on your right. Shortly after passing the Forest Service facility there will be a right turn with signs for Corral Canyon OHV area. Take the right at Morena Stokes Valley Rd. and proceed past the military base. Continue a couple of miles up the mountain toward the fire lookout tower. As you reach a saddle of the mountain you will see the 4 Corners Parking area of Corral Canyon OHV Park.

In case some people didn't know, I've sold the Tacoma and got myself a 1994 Landcruiser. She's all stock but we'll be making this one for her maiden voyage! I'll be leading an easy run around the perimeter road and up to visit the fire watch. It'll be nice to put some dirt under my feet again.





P.S.- If you appreciate the shout out in the event post, "like" it!

Are you keeping the group to 10 or less? Also, is there room to pass if people come the other direction? I'm just remembering how long the Miller Jeep Trail trip took.

We will accommodate any group size. Recently, however, this run hasn't seen the numbers that it has in years past. Yes, it's quite the drive to get there. But the area is fun to explore and offers something for everybody.

Try not to let a small detail like trail traffic get in the way of having a good time. Does it happen? Sure, you'll run into other people/groups in CC but it's few and far between. We did a CV change 2 years ago on the trail that took around 45 minutes and didn't hold up anybody. If you've never been there, you owe it to yourself to check it out. But to specifically answer your question: The perimeter road is pretty much 2 vehicles wide. Most of the trails, though, are tight with areas that open up for easy passing.

Each trail is short enough that we're able to explore a few during the day.

Count me in. I don't think my rig can do Gunslinger but the other two trails sound doable. Are you doing an overnight trip? I'd be willing to spend the night and run the easy perimeter trail on Sunday. I heard the trail that follows the Espinosa Trail is a moderate one too.

My cruiser is still stock. So, I'm sticking to the perimeter road and anything easy. Dawson might have other plans but it would be something difficult. This is just a day run for me. I won't be camping.
