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 warm so pack a few extra bottles of water!!

I hope to make it out, I'm also working on sliders and some other small maintenance issues but should be ready to roll!

Is there a bypass to the last difficult section?
Nope. Sliders are a must to avoid body damage and a locker is a must due to several offset rock steps.
Charlie has sliders and he made it through Cleghorn right behind me. He had tires in the air multiple times and was still able to push through all the obstacles. I understand Alamo Mnt. is more difficult than Cleghorn but I give Charlie the go-ahead for this one if he wants to join us.

ShowStop, you haven't officially said if you were going or not. You in?

This is a fun trip that you don't want to miss. It looks like we are going to miss it this year due to the work schedule. Hope to see you all next month.

Well, unfortunately we didn't finish the sliders. I won't be making it this weekend in order to complete the task. Good news is I'll be prepared for Rower flats and every event after that!

You still have time to sign up! Don't miss a good time out in Los Padres NF!
