Be aware the rangers kicked us off the bypass trails this saturday and told us we had to stay on the fire road or we could be cited. There is a write up on the myjeeeprocks website under trail reports. We think the ranger may have been misinformed but it stilled ruined our ride.

Been there countless times, but only once in recent years. This time of year it should be very dry - other times of the year it can be very wet, muddy, snowy.

I use to live in Etiwanda before Rancho Cucamonga swallowed it up.

That is a fun trail. I am concerned about that ranger story though...

I was one of those that was stopped by the ranger. They were cool about it, but i dont think we were on a non trail. Al the roads are very clearly ROADS..not some off brush trail. Just remember that if they do stop you for anything keep a cool head..that is one thing that is important, becuz your attitude towards them could make the difference between a fine and not...It did seem to me that they had some issues earlier (I thought they made mention of others doing loops and running all over-wasn’t us!) so maybe they were just a lil pissed at the others and thought we might be them so stopped us to give us a warning...It doesn't matter either way, they have a job to do and we didn't go off the roads.

It's a good trail that's less than an hour away. If you want something more challenging after you complete Cleghorn, drive to the other side of Lake Silverwood and check out 2N17X (but not by yourself).

Fun little trail. Nothing too difficult except for pucker hill which is very tough. I would not recommend doing pucker in any short wheel base vehicle. I almost learned that the hard way

if you haven't run Cleghorn yet, consider going with the SoCal Jeep Meetup group on Saturday, NOV 1st:

I love this trail! I've done it twice with-in the last 4 weeks. I also heard about the rangers up there but every ranger I asked said its all fairgame.....so i donno. maybe they just had a few a$$-holes working there for a bit.


On a side note, I've never heard of 2N17X. How do I get there and how hard is it?

2n17x is at the end or beginning of Pilot rock which is 2n33.
If you take the 173 near silverwood lake its up there. You should have a guide to California backroads or join www.trails.com..its a good site...
I have never been on 2n17x but have went by it on pilot rock...it looks tuff...

2N17x it an interesting, farily tough trail. I did it when I was on 31's with one locker. It was about as tough as I wanted at that time. If you start from Lake Silverwood (as Axkick described), the trail starts a couple hundred yards up the Pilot Rock trail, with a split to the left. You immediately hit an obstical that is a good test. If you're OK with that first climb, you will be OK with the rest of the trail. If not, just continue up Pilot Rock road.

Here's a map of the area - http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/sanbernardin...d_bigpines.pdf

Dude, found it on trails.com. Looks sweet, only few miles once you exit cleghorn. So are we going November 1st? sounded like an invite to me. Eric- you got the trails.com login info? just search 2n17x it comes up as pilot rock road. Dude have to get the CA atlas, only 20$ at AAA....It has all the trails.

Damn I knew I shouldn't of let it go when I sold my YJ...

That was for f3arn0FJ. As for cleghorn: Me and f3arn0FJ went up there the other week, went down all the side routes. Pretty sweet, little fun up that squeeze when the side of your XJ is pretty much up against the side of hill.

He once thought that his suburban could go everywhere the jeep can, kept telling him no way. After cleghorn I think he agreed. lol
