    Bucket List Trails in Cali

    If you had just 7 days to wheel in California which trails would you choose. Iím thinking the Rubicon and Dusy Ershim (but maybe these are too similar to have both on the list) any other key trails that youíd add to the list. They donít necessarily need to be the most challenging or well known, scenery is an important factor to me as well.

    I love Big Bear you have so many different options. If the trails there are not enough then you drive down the backside to KOH or Cougar Butts area.

    There are so many amazing trails here in California. If you haven't done the Rubicon it's a must. As has already been stated Big Bear with John Bull, Gold Mountain, Holcomb Creek, Dishpan.
    Theres also Mottino wash and Cougar Buttes near Big Bear. The list just goes on and on
    For me, I want to do Fordyce and the Dusy in the Sierras.

    Dusty Ershim wonít be open early in the year, usually around august, and it would be far from top of the list for me if I didnít live here. Itís long and exhausting.

    Rubicon I would plan for sure. There is two jamborees during the summer and various other events you would have to work around. Nothing in the desert since itíll be like lava in July there.

    After rubicon I would probably shoot for a couple shorter day trip type trails. You would need to pick an area though since there is a lot. Do you want to stay near Tahoe? Yosemite? Los Angeles? Bay Area? It would depend.

    LOL - if you only have 7 days to play and Rubicon is a must, please donít waste your time with Big Bear. No offense intended to fans of Big Bear but really, it canít hold a candle to anything up in the Sierraís.

    Being that youíd be out in the summer time, anything on Death Valley or the desert might be a no go. But, there are trails out there I would have recommended.

    Do they have to be wheeling trails?

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
