Buy a BLM map and stay on the trails. Most of the state is off limits to ATV riders unless you are in posted areas allowing it's use but those areas are getting smaller every year. Most of the offroad areas that I've come in contact with either don't allow ATV use or don't allow hunting. Then there's the State Park boundaries. Most trails are mark but occasionally you might find yourself on Park grounds and get ticketed by the Park Rangers who love to chase ATV's. Anza Borrego State Park is a good example. It borders alot of BLM land and it's easy to find yourself on Park grounds. Best thing to do is leave the ATV at home and go scouting for the yotes and quails in a 4x4 (Jeep, Truck or SUV). At least you'll be legal in the Park trails! Good Luck!!!

I use the BLM maps to get the lay of the land-know where the "out of boundaries" are. They do show some of the major trails and washes and the legend shows what vehicles are allowed on which trails. Just follow the little brown stakes!There are still alot of areas in the deserts to ride that are legal for ATV's but you have to be careful not to stray into "private properties", "State Parks" and "out of boundary" areas. Most of the "out of boundary" areas that you will run into are areas that have been closed off for "endangered species or vegetation". More closures that the Greenies have instigated :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow: .

It sucks that we have to give up things like this. I used to have a quad about 8 years ago, but kept getting ran off and there was just less and less places to go. When I got into this Coyote thing, I looked into getting a Rhino or Ranger (the perfect vehicle for hunting). But after a bunch of research, it is HARD to find areas in California that allow both ATV's and Hunting. I decided to give up the ATV dream and just continue using my Jeep Cherokee. I'm thinking of miving up to a Tahoe or something bigger than my Jeep though, so I have a place to sleep if I get a chance to do some overnighters. :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

Again fellows, do your research, get maps or call the local authorities and be prepared. Nothing worse than getting to that "fun area" and then getting a ticket, or put in jail or worse, getting detained by military security personel who will hold you and your vehicle until they feel you're not a "threat to National Security". Fun times!!!
