    Hey guys, just want to double check if my Stock Tacoma 6speed is able to go into the San Gabriel Canyons with dirt bike on bed? It's my first time and I was told I would have to cross 2 water creeks and I don't know if water is too high for stock taco to pass thru. It's my first time taking the taco into the dirt and this location. Any advice would be very grateful. Not trying to get stuck and get posterized.

    Look up Gorman, Lytle Creek Or Cleghorn are your closes places. Azusa caynon is place to watch other people break there shit.

    IF you can contact the forest service and ask for the key right next to azusa caynon OHV heard that is cool ride.
