Area Northwest of the State Park with many views.

   This was a really nice, but challenging trip through the hills and washes northwest of the Gunlock State Park. You don't at any time enter the Park. We did cross the Santa Clara River, which was running at this time, (end of March 2019). There were a lot of neat rock formations and views of the area around Gunlock, but the Reservoir is in a valley and wasn't visible. Above you can see the Veyo Volcano with the Pine Mountains in the background. Off-road on this trip was 14.8 miles and it took 4 hrs, including a lunch stop. See the video for more!
   Watch the short video below for a little more detail of this trip. We did loose our Action Cam on this trip, so we lost some footage of the rougher areas and the one really bad sandy area that we had to climb. It was a little bit of a challenge and should not be tried in anything but a good 4x4 with clearance and please air down for the sandy areas.
