Cal4Wheel Events

Our family-oriented events are an important part of Cal4Wheel. Some of our events have been occurring for nearly 50 years, and are a perfect place for old friends to meet, newcomers to learn about four-wheeling, hard-core wheelers to find challenges, and for the kids to enjoy special activities just for them.

All of our events are run completely by volunteers, with all proceeds going back to Cal4Wheel. We guarantee that you will find our events to be extremely enjoyable.

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.

Benefits of belonging

As a member you receive a membership card, decals, and a dash plaque.

We will advocate on your behalf to keep public lands open in California and the western United States.

You receive our full color bi-monthly magazine, the In Gear. This contains information about club activities, legislation, events, trails, and 4WD products.

Eligibility to participate in all association-sponsored events.

A club directory with information about clubs throughout California.

The right to representation for voting on association matters through either your club, individual or associate member delegate.

Special email alerts on public land matters and related issues.

List of business associate members (many of whom provide discounts to association members).

Discount on CalStar air ambulance membership. For more information visit calstar.org/membership. Be sure to use the group membership option and enter Cal4Wheel as the group name.

Types of Memberships

Persons wishing to join and support the aims of the association may do so without belonging to a club. Ownership of a four-wheel drive vehicle is not required. Membership is not confined to the state of California. An individual member receives the same benefits as a club member.

Member clubs shall be a group of four or more vehicle owners. Club members generally pay their association dues through their club in May and June every year. You may also join or renew your club membership through our website. Be sure to tell us what club you belong to when you check out.

The membership category permits an individual, club or associate member to become of the association for life. Once the life membership fee has been paid, no further association dues will be assessed. Club dues, if applicable, must be paid in accordance with your club's bylaws.

The Associate Membership program is designed to create a close relationship between owners of four-wheel drive vehicles and the business firms that provide the products and services they buy and use. Association members are encouraged to support associate member businesses.

Take a trek back in time

By Russ Chung

According to the Death Valley National Park website, in the Fall of 1849, a group of pioneers left Salt Lake City for the gold fields of California.  The disaster that befell the Donner Party a couple of years before were still fresh on everyone’s mind.  So instead of attempting to cross the Sierra Nevada Mountains in winter, they intended to follow the Old Spanish Trail, which went around the south end of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  On Christmas Eve of 1849, some of them arrived at Travertine Springs, the source of Furnace Creek in what is now known as Death Valley.

Their oxen were weak from lack of forage and their wagons were battered and in poor shape. They too were weary and discouraged but their worst problem was not the valley that lay before them. It was the towering Panamint Mountains that stood like an impenetrable wall as far as could be seen.

From Furnace Creek, the pioneers struggled across the salt flats and attempted to pass over the Panamint Range via Warm Springs Canyon, but were unable to do so. They retreated to the valley floor and sent two young men, William Lewis Manly and John Rogers, 'over the mountain' to get supplies.  Nearly a month went by as the men walked more than 300 miles to Mission San Fernando, got supplies at a ranch and trekked back.  When Manly and Rogers finally arrived to the camp of the Bennett-Arcan party they found many of the group had left to find their own way out of the valley. The two families with children had patiently remained, trusting the men to save them. Only one man had perished during their long wait, but as they made their way west over the mountains, someone is said to have proclaimed "Goodbye, Death Valley," giving the valley its morbid name.

On November 8, 9 and 10, 2017 twenty intrepid overland adventurers will retrace the path of these 49ers in Cal4Wheel's "Escape from Death Valley 2017" Run. This run will begin near Death Valley Junction on the morning of November 8, stay overnight in Warm Springs Canyon, continue via Butte Valley, Mengel Pass and Goler Wash to the 2017 Panamint Valley Days base camp on November 9, then explore the remainder of the Death Valley Escape Trail between the Panamint Valley and Trona on November 10. Due to permit restrictions, this run is limited to twenty vehicles. Any vehicle with high clearance and 4 wheel drive is OK. Once the run is filled, we will place up to ten vehicles on a wait list before closing registration for the run.  

PLEASE NOTE: There is a vehicle limit established for this run by Death Valley National Park. We will establish a waiting list once the limit is reached.

Saturday Runs

On Saturday morning it's up and at 'em. This year we might have eight trails running through the desert area.

This is a rough, well-named run. A suspension lift and at least one locker are strongly recommended. Most obstacles have bypasses, but there are several steep hill climbs and rocky areas where body or parts damage are possible.

This run is limited to the first 25 that sign up, and is open to long and short wheelbase vehicles with at least 33" tires, one locker and a lift. Not for oversized vehicles or Stock SUV's. Weather and erosion have increased the difficulty of these historic roads. Body damage, scrapes and scratches are possible. 22 miles of pavement driving from Slash X to trail head, where we will air down. The trail heads up Doran Canyon that has challenging waterfalls to climb that will definitely test a driver's ability. We will be stopping to check out the Bismark Mine area and then heading down Odessa Canyon where again drivers ability will be tested with very tight canyon passes and narrow shelf roads.

This run will be limited to the first 50 vehicles that sign up. This run can be done by all vehicle types, but long wheelbase vehicles will have difficulty in some spots. At least a limited slip is required, one hard locker is recommended. The trail has rock crawling sections with good-sized rocks, several rocky canyons, a few tight squeezes, some off-cambers, and several loose hill climbs. Some of the more difficult spots have bypasses, but two do not. Body damage is possible, breakage has happened in the past. There is a rock pile obstacle at the beginning of the trail. If you have trouble here, you will want to consider returning to camp and running the Blue Moon run. The Blue Moon run will start at 9 a.m. and will line-up near camp. Trail leaders will be checking all vehicles in line and talking to the owners of questionable vehicles.

This run will be limited to the first 40 vehicles that sign up. An old favorite returns with a twist - it will be run in the reverse direction. What was once very steep descents are now steep canyon climbs, and vice versa. This run will go up or down 7 to 9 canyons in the hills southwest of camp. You will experience a range of challenges, tight rocky canyons, loose uphill climbs, off-camber lefts and rights on ridgelines, and downhills on steep canyons with twists and turns. This trail also has very scenic views of the entire valley area. Vehicles will be required to have at least 33" tires, a single full locker in the rear or dual limited slips.

This is a new trail that travels through canyons and hillsides north of the Slash X. This run is limited to the first 20 vehicles that sign up. Min 35" tires, lockers front and rear, and an experienced driver are strongly advised. This run has some steep climbs up loose material, rocky canyons, off camber areas and a few waterfalls. Because the trail has not been driven much, many portions have unsure footing and rocks and dirt can move around. Desert pinstripes and scratched skid plates are almost certain on this trail.

This run will be limited to the first 25 vehicles that sign up. Requirements are: 33" tires (35" recommended), double-hard lockers and usable tow hooks. A winch is strongly recommended. This run will go up two steep canyons with rocks and bigger rocks. Also, there will be a V-notch, a dry waterfall climb or two, and maybe a hill climb. This is an EXTRA ROUGH run with limited bypasses. Body and drivetrain damage are likely. Due to some changes in our run, those with 33" tires will be advised to take alternates on 2 sections of the trail. There will be a vehicle check in line. Get lined up early so you can join another run if you don't pass the scrutiny.

There will be a minimum of two teams. Communication is key to this exercise. Ham Radio is preferred but not required, CB or FRS radio can also be used. One GPS unit per team is required each member is encouraged to have a GPS but not required.

The teams will work through a series of objectives to capture the Tactical Objective before the other team. The first team to capture the objective will win a prize.

The maximum number of vehicles for this run is 14, there can be more than one person per vehicle. That is two teams with a max number of vehicles per team of 6 and two vehicles that function as over-watch for each team. To make this work I would need a min of 4 vehicles to sign up.

This will be open to all vehicles SUV's will be able to participate, there will be very mild four- wheeling involved.
