    And they all have a cool history and stories if you are into that kinda stuff.
    Your direction, not your intention, leads to your destination

    we run out there all the time:
    Calico,
    has a full hook up, primitive and cabins... really inexpensive, good jeeping and riding , alot of mines of course, mostly trail riding, very little open riding. We loved going out there... the ghost town is fun

    Stoddard Valley:
    Excellent open riding and jeeping, all primitive camping, slash X is on barstow rd and is ten miles from the 15. We normally camp close to there because of less crowds and great food. But you can enter along Hodge rd or Outlet Center Dr. Just park unpack and enjoy.

    What, you're thinking about coming out with the "dirt people"?!??!!

    I'll PM you about a trip less than an hour from your place on T-giving weekend. Bring your Rhino for the day, there are some great places to drive it.

    Calico has a campground and lots of cool trails behind it. You can go to Camp Irwin off-road. You can also go to the Calico Early Man site, next exit east from Yermo.

    I think someone mentioned the Slash X, that's also some great wheeling. The mountain to the northwest of Slash X has a great trail called Achy Breaky. There are optional harder spots, or you can just go around and enjoy the scenery.

    The neat deal is it's owned by the County of San Bernardino. Spend your money there as it's a rare deal to find dirt to play on that is not controlled by the Feds (BLM).
    We Jeep through there about 2x a year. Camp up in Mule Canyon, Run the Jeeps through Odessa. Lots of stuff to explore.
