Thanks for the pic. Do a lot of people use this area to off-road?

yes, but most of them drive lifted trucks. I have seen very few Jeeps out there and even less modded ones.

I used to take my mini truck out there, so whatever works.

Hey climbit, are you a rock climber? Ever go to the santee boulders?

all the time. Haven't been in a while; pretty much climbed that place out. now that the weather is cool enough I'm sure Ill be heading out there in the afternoons again. makes for a good place to train that's not in a gym.

Where is this exactly? Does Clairemont extend to the 15?

Also, try Buckman Springs. Just head East on the 8 until Buckman Springs Road, right near the last Border Patrol stop on the West-bound I8.

Good trails to the south and trails up the mountain to the north that lead to where many take off with hang gliders.

if you follow a side road that heads toward the mountain there is a pretty steep trail that leads up and over.
Cool. I'm going to check this out.

I always liked Pancake Rock. It's close to town but still challenging to everyone.

Where is this? Does anyone know of a good off-roading paper map for SD County?

I believe the Buckman Springs exit takes you to Corral Canyon. Some places out there require OHV certification so be careful. Check out Alva Ln. in Crest. Its marked as a street on google maps but its a sweet trail.
