Join Cal4Wheel

Serving the California four-wheeling family since 1959.

Why we need you

Cal4wheel was formed in 1959 by some four-wheelers who were getting tired of their trails being closed. Fast forward 50+ years and the battles are the same. The desire to play on public lands is as strong as ever, and more people than ever before have some form of off-road vehicle. Our opponents have also been busy those 50+ years and are just as strong now as they were in 1959.

The bottom line: We need your help. We need your dollars to fight the legal battles. We need your time to help with events, committees and access issues. Dues are still only $45, which amounts to less than $4 per month for the benefits that we provide.
