    Hey guys,

    This is my first post on this site and i was wondering if there were any good trails in the south San Diego county area? I have a 2010 V6 4x4 and wanted to introduce her to nature. Any info would be great

    Welcome to TW, Not real sure whats left open legally in the southern regions, I think theres a couple roads that the prerunners use, I would've suggested Proctor Valley region but I guess SD Sheriff's Dept. is really cracking down on the "trespassing" & trashing up of the place (not necessarily offroaders doing it). Are you new to San Diego ? Someone here will probably host a trail run thread soon, I haven't hosted one yet, but wouldn't really matter anyway, seems like I always get pushed to the front taking lead. At first I thought it was because I was a good wheeler, but in retrospect I now realize that just like the rancher in South America that has to pick one of the old & sickly bulls & send them in to the water first only to be eaten by phiranas so the young & strong safely get across the river...:D:D:D

    But seriously what kind of wheeling do you prefer ? We usually end up in Corral Canyon which is fine, lots of trails & skill levels, plus soon it'll be Desert season (for us pussies that can;t handle the heat) Ocotillo is going to be great too !!!...

    To be totally honest, this is the first off road vehicle i've owned and i don't really know what kind of off-roading i'd prefer. I'm pretty much up for anything as long as it doesn't damage my new truck.
    I drove some short trails around Otay Lake over the weekend that really got me interested in finding some trails that would occasionally require 4 wheel drive. I will definitely keep an eye out for upcoming threads.
    thanks for the info

    No worries Gabe, alot of the runs we have here are Prerunner friendly even but still challenging & we haven't lost anyone yet, hell sometimes we come back with more people than we came with !!:D


    I remember my first 4x, just drove around looking for shit to climb....:eek: :D

    No, Here in San Diego (or SoCal in general) doesn't have a "season" really, you can offroad,take your bikes out etc; all year round, & seems like activity for trail runs on this forum slows down a little because of vacations other events not Tacoma World related ,you know people are just busy doing other shit I guess. I'm not doing any trails right now til I re-tire my truck & a couple other small issues.. But if you don't mind the drive the L.A. & I.E. guys are a good bunch & have some runs coming up I think, SD threads are a little quiet right now....:cool:

    Otay mountain truck trail is easy but still fun to do once in a while. Nice view when you get to the top of the mountain. And if you keep going, you come out somewhere out by the otay lakes i think... I can't remember right now.
