This is a good introduction to trail runs for new members with stock Rovers.

We will start at the practice/play area on Trabuco Creek Road where Keanan will be teaching a Skills Clinic: driving skills, along with basic spotting and recovery techniques. You can then apply what you've learned and play around some steep, dug-out sections and rutted rocky areas.


We will spend 2-3 hours doing the clinic then have lunch then head out to Maple Springs and drive up to Santiago Peak where we will hang out and enjoy the views of OC and Riverside. We will exit via Main Divide to Ortega Hwy.

Experienced drivers and those inclined to do a challenging section can drive up and down Cadillac Hill by the practice area.
