Hello everyone, I just got myself a 2014 Raptor and I am looking for a good place to get to know my truck and see how it handles. I am used to driving quads and sand rails but nothing like this. Also any advice and tips would be great. Thank you.

Ocotillo wells, Oceano dunes (Pismo beach), Johnson valley, Glamis. What part of SoCal are you in? California has a list of OHV areas if you google.

There is a prettly solid group of us here in SoCal that head out together, and often.

Please check your wallet at the door....the upgrade bug is about to hit!

I live in the Inland Empire so I would prefer something close for now but I do plan on going to Pismo and Glamis later this year.

Haha I know what you mean. That sounds like fun. I dont have anyone that has a raptor or similar truck to go out and hit the trails.

Barstow sounds like a great place. I see that there is quite a few trails out there. Any one in particular you recommend?

Try starting off on the power line road Barstow to Baker. Stoddard Wells is another place to play.

If u want to just get in the dirt there's tons of local trails all around the local mountains and canyons that I've been doin for years i could show you, but if you really want to stretch the Raptor's legs your lookin at the high desert or Saltin Sea. Let me know i'm close @ DayCreek & 210

Exit Outlet Center drive in Barstow and enter the ohv park there. Definitely scope out the trails first before hitting it with speed. It can get nasty real quick.

Sounds like a great idea since I am in Fontana. Let me get some free time and I will definitely let you know so we can set something up.
