Hey guys, I was in Yuma yesterday and I noticed a couple if mountain ranges nearby. I was wondering has anyone been offroading in those mountains?

Up north in California? If so, a lot of that is the Chocolate Mountain Arial Gunnery Range. Can't wheel up in them but, to the north east of them is the Bradshaw Trail.

I'll have to check it out.

Do you know if there are trails near the Colorado river on the Arizona side?

I didn't get a PDF. I looked at Yuma trails fb pics and did a google search of the names they posted with the pics.

No worries. I'm going to look into finding GPS or maps of those locations. The pics I saw made the trails look interesting and an added bonus there are some mining ghost towns and possible camping along the Colorado river.

After hours of searching online, I was able to find the names of trails, some GPS info and the rating of difficulty near Yuma and along the CA/AZ border. Thanks to Yuma 4x4 website with the info.
