Hey, Im new around here but just got myself a cherokee. I was just searching for trails in the santa cruz area and stumboled across this link. He says the trail is off of summit road exit, Im assuming off of higway 17 since he is located in san jose. Does anyone know where this is?! It looks like a great trail. Lots of great pictures too.

well heres the problem, we both have steep driveways and i can barely fit my jeep in the garage because of the mess. We can do it at my place if i get the garage cleaned up, but its not looking too promising.

Got my disconnects in, only cost me like 10 bucks. Took out the sway bar and sprayed a coat of anti-rust paint on it. Now i need to do some fender trimming cause im rubbin alot!

I'm not sure where that is. To be honest I didn't know there was anything that close(I'm right on the other side of the hill). I've been trying to find fire roads or something off of summit but I heard they're all locked and don't allow public access (I might be wrong though). Oh, and welcome to the forum

Thanks! yeah me and a buddy of mine just got some cherokee's, there both on 31's. In the next few weeks mine have a welded front and 33's. Were always down to go wheeling but there arnt very many spots around here. Im in santa cruz and thats fairly close. I really want to find out where this is.

Also, I saw another two door XJ stop next to mine, take a picture and then drive off. I was at work right off soquel avenue. Any of you?

no problem dude theres enough room in my garage to work around it on the sides. we finished all the drywall and everything so theres plenty of room. We can trim you up nice and good when ur over here too. maybe get my TC skid on there too while we are at it?

oh yeah, and ive got a sheet of plywood that will do fine for painting them in the garage, or we can just hang them in a tree with some wire through a bolt hole, weither way works fine. weather permitting on the tree idea of course

hello, welcome to our little slice of jeep forum. your kinda inbetween northern and southern ca. most the stuff we do is in the sierras from hwy 80 to hwy 4.
there is a group heading to pismo soon and that would be a nice trip for you. scroll back through here and you will find the details. there is also a group called uc4x4 that is in your area. they go anywhere from pismo to the rubicon. that trail you put the link up for looks about as hard as the road to my house but a little prettier!
