Who we are

We're the California Four Wheel Drive Association, Inc. Since 1959, our non-profit organization has actively promoted the advancement of vehicle oriented outdoor recreation. Today, the association represents over 8,000 members and 160 member clubs. We are the largest organization of its type in California and represent owners of all makes and models of 4WD vehicles, as well as non-owners who support responsible vehicle-oriented recreation.


We have events all over California, with trails suitable for all types of vehicles and drivers. These family-friendly events are run entirely by volunteers and are a great way to four-wheel in new areas, meet other four-wheelers, and build your off-highway driving skills.

Fighting closures

We work to prevent legislation that would restrict off-highway vehicles and vehicle use, along with encouraging local, state and federal agencies to develop new four-wheel drive trails and preserve existing ones.
