There are a lot of places to go freewheeling in and around Fresno. There are also a lot of clubs around that allow you to get together with others who love four wheeling. The only time that they do not have outings is when there is snow laying heavily on the ground. These clubs were formed by people who, like you, wanted to go out and have a great time. It started out with people using mostly Jeeps. When these clubs got their start, you were allowed to go anywhere you wanted to go. There were no restrictions; even if you wanted to do cross country rides. Now, trails are more organized. The clubs work with the forest service so that routes are established as trails and there are markings to show you the route along the trail.
There are four-wheel drive clubs at Brewer Lake, Coyote Lake, Mirror Lake, Bald Mountain, Strawberry Lake and more. Some of these clubs do require you to have a membership if you want to join. Some have fully functioning facilities on site, while others are more focused on people who just want to go out and have a great time.
Meeting Schedules and More
Meetings are held randomly. Some clubs have them at the first of the month, while others may have them on the second weekend of the month or later in the month. If there is a place that you want to visit, you can contact your most favorite club’s information page to find out when their meetings are held. This will also give you more information on the policies that the club may have.
Where to Go If Gates Are Closed?
There are, at times, closures of the four wheeling clubs. Most often, it is because there is something going on that causes a safety concern. A sad truth is; when they are closed, you will have to find some other place to go and play. It means that their gates are closed. You are not allowed to get on the trail. If you ignore the closed gate and get on your most favorite trail; you could face a hefty fine. Some areas charge up to $5,000 if you are caught on a closed trail. Your best bet, if you want to go four-wheeling is to find a backup place to play until your favorite club is opened back up.
