    Has anyone heard of any off roading trails off of the 14 hwy and the 5 freeway? And I noticed that you guys have difficulty rating for some areas does anyone know how harsh the terrain is?

    Money pit.
    Off the 14 there's Indian Canyon (off Soledad near Agua Dulce). It's 2WD friendly during regular weather. There's also Rowher Flats OHV area off sierra highway.

    Off the 5 there's Gorman/Hungry Valley OHV area, which has tons of trails.

    Down lower off the 5 there's lots of trails with various difficulty levels that originate in San Fransiquito Cyn Rd. in Santa Clarita.

    Cal City is about 45min-1hr North on the 14. Lots O' trails out there. I live in Littlerock, but spend a LOT of time in Cal City (Dirtbikes/Off road)

    Hey just letting you guys see what happend to my Tacoma when I went to California City... I must admit i only wish it wasn't so windy other than that I obviously had a blast as you can tell... The only thing I hated was washing it off, it was a true pain in the neck...
