"We offer over 51 miles of system OHV trails and roads traversing through beautiful Descanso Ranger District are displayed on the Corral Canyon OHV Area map. This guide is designed to provide the off-highway vehicle enthusiast with information, regulations, and travel tips while using National Forest lands.

The trails vary in elevation from 3,400 feet at Corral Canyon Campground to 4,169 feet at Bronco Peak, and vary in degree of difficulty from novice to advanced.

The Corral Canyon OHV area is not an OHV "park". Off-highway vehicle recreation is just one of the many used allowed on the National Forest. So please ride with care and always be prepared for other vehicles that may be coming toward you."

  Easy -
   These fun family trails are suited for a stock vehicle and may not always require four wheel drive. In most cases these trails consist of well maintained service roads. Roads are typically wide enough to accommodate passing.

  Moderate -
   While more challenging than the "Easy" rated trails, drivers of all skill levels can enjoy these trails. At this level a stock high clearance four wheel drive vehicle is required. Trails are typically narrow with possible brush that may scratch your vehicle. Passing usually requires backing up.

  Difficult -
   Trails at this rating require a vehicle with increased ground clearance and proper protection. Trails will often require a spotter and should only be attempted by more experienced off road drivers. Most trails at this level require 33" tires and at least one locker is recommended.

  Extreme -
   Trails at this rating require a heavily modified vehicle. At this point you most likely have more dents than lugs on your tires, flops and rollovers are just part of your Sunday drive. Front and rear lockers, at least 35" tires and a winch are highly recommended. "Extreme" rated trails should only be attempted by the most experienced off road drivers.
