Are you stock or lifted?

There are tons of trails within an hour of Auburn. Rubicon, Fordyce, Deer Valley, Signal Peak, Strawberry Pass, etc. There is also a ton of NF land around that you can go explore. One of my favorite spots is in Foresthill. About 2 miles out of downtown Foresthill take a left on Finning Mill road and then take that down a couple miles. After about 2-3 miles it turns from private to NF land. There are tons of trails and you can camp, shoot, quad, dirtbike, whatever.

Here are a couple sites with trail reviews:

Another great place in Colfax is down You Bet Road. Get off at the Colfax exit go right over the overpass, follow 174 to You Bet Rd. Take a right on You Bet and follow it until you go over a river and take a left after the bridge. Go through the quarry and head upstream. Good fun!

Good snow wheeling is heading out through Foresthill and going straight through town and straight on until morning. Eventually they stop plowing and you can wheel forever.

that looks like it would be challenging for a full width rig to get through.

The Squeeze

Hi
A lot of full size vehicles say "screw this" after it costs them a mirror or fender. The "Squeeze is in the Ana Borrego Desert. What follows is even more fun...Heart attack hill. Very tippy and steep.
Do you wheel anywhere near auburn?

Welded, there's not a whole lot other than fire roads and that right in Forest Hill or Auburn really. But not too far is a lot of decent wheeling including the Rubicon and Fordyce. You're already over at the norcal site right?

Forest hill/Auburn area

Hey Timatoe
Yeah I have recived some good info from the NorCal jeep forum.That's home turf for a good group of jeepers. Have you ever tried jeeping a trail called Hell Hole? It's not too far from forest hill/French medows area.

Hell Hole is one of my favorites. It's an easy trip to hit in a day. I mean distance in and out from our area not the trail itself being easy (if that makes sense). When are you going to be up this way? Maybe we can get a trip in with some other NorCal guys before the rain and snow start.
