Trail Roster

Welcome to Trail Roster; a collection of memories and trail information for some of the best 4x4 trails in California, plus information the 4x4 rigs we run and the gear we use while on these trails. We wheel all over California, from the Rubicon Trail to Knoxville, from Bald Mountain, Swamp Lake and the Dusy Ershim to Big Bears John Bull, Gold Mountain, Holcomb Creek Trail and Motino Wash. From the Anza Borrego Desert to Monache Meadows in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains and more.

These are the places we wheel and love, the offroad rigs that get us there and the gear we use while we are there.

Camping Gear


The rigs that take us through these trials are all modified. Some more than others, but all are purpose built for these trails. Check out the rig pages here to see more on these off road vehicles.

GPS Maps, powerful ham radios, camping gear, navigation apps on tablets and even google earth imagery are some of the tools and equipment we use while on the trail. See more about the gear we use and some camping tricks we've learned on our gear pages.

For licensed ham radio operators, we include some radio repeater information on each of the trail pages.
