Off road areas in SD?

The only place I have ever gone off roading was off proctor valley road going from chula vista to Jamul but they are now putting some sort of fence up and you can no longer go off the road. Sometimes I go off otay lakes road going towards Jamul at the thousand trails campground but a lot of border patrol so a lot of traffic.
Is thee anywhere else??

Here's a place to do some reading.

Corral Canyon is to closest place to SD with multiple trails and several levels.

What are you actually looking for?

Im just looking for something easy to start off with, as Ive only been off-roading a total for four times since ive had my wrangler. And have only been driving a stick for about 2 months (and its my first stick). I can drive stick perfectly, without any problems but I wanna get the feel for it when off roading. Once I get the hang of it I would like to try a little bit harder ones, but would like to get the jeep lifted before that.

its as updated as i know. im pretty new to trails in so cal, but as anti fun as california is, off road is secluded to a few areas, like ocotillo wells, el centro, salton city. But the book covers all over including borrego national park, etc. I had never been east of san diego before a few weekends ago, and with just the book and an iphone with gps, ive filled up 4 long weekends of wheeling without doubling up on a trail. all within 2-3 hours of san diego.

Cool, i'll pick up a copy, thanks for the advice, i like the fact it has difficulties listed for every trail... had a bad experience over the weekend up Lawson Peak with what i assumed was an easy trail for a near stock jeep.
