    Hey guys. I'm gonna be heading out to Borrego this weekend to do some exploring and was wondering if you could point me in the direction of some good hikes and or wheeling trails. As far as wheeling goes I'm on the stock TRD OR package so avoiding anything with crazy clearance issues would be appreciated. So far I've got on my list Font's point and The Slot. Thanks in advance.

    Yes I'm 4x4. Thanks for the reply David, and let me start off by saying that I've ready many of your posts and found them to be extremely helpful. I've been eyeing that exact run via park maps and things I've heard but this post is great! Looks like I'll be heading up fish creek as well. What kind of setup are you on? From the looks of the video and pics you appear to be stock height as well, and make it look easy. If not, were there any parts of the trail that might become an issue for stock height?

    I took my baja bug on 235/75 15s. I know it a bug, but stock should be okay IMO.

    Fish Creek Wash is a blast if you've never been, especially the end of it in Sandstone Canyon. You can easily spend a few hours there. I'm a 4x4 with open diffs (no lockers) and I've never had a problem there. Just aired down for a smoother ride. My friend in a prerunner had no problems either. Enjoy!

    Here is a map I made a while ago for the trailhead. Highway 78 to Split Mountain Rd, then down 8 miles to the trailhead.

    Good stuff guys. Mercury, I've seen even stock bugs do some pretty nasty shit. I'm actually hoping to get my hands on a family '72 Ghia soon and beef it out. Traveler, thanks for the map reference. You just saved me a lot of guess work. You guys think Font's, The Slot and Fish Creek Wash will be enough to keep me busy all weekend?

    If you hit Truckhaven while you're up at Font's Point, I'd say yes. Fish Creek is a half day by itself, you can knock out Fon'ts Point and The Slot in a half day as well. Truckhaven is a lot of fun for 4x4's.

    Sweet! Looks like I've got the weekend planned, weather should clear up and it's gonna stay pretty cool out. Can't ask for more than that :cool:. Thanks again for the input.
