More About California Off-Road Trails
California epitomizes the extent of off-roading in the West. From the vast Mojave Desert to the high trails of the Sierra Mountains, cliffs overlooking the Pacific, and dusty sagebrush roads with towering boulders, riders of all levels will enjoy exploring more than 100 designated off-road trails. Use your onX Offroad App to find California trails for your Jeep, ATV, side-by-side, dirt bike and overland vehicle. Choosing when to travel depends on the climate: winter in the desert, summer in the mountains, and avoiding the rainy season by the coasts. Take time to hike, camp and check out all that California has to offer.
