Off-Roading Clubs:

Hard core enthusiast will enjoy these special organizations dedicated to responsible off-roading - Find dirt back roads & trails Mild to Wild! and remember 4x4 not always a necessity for exploration & true adventures. High clearance 2WD will do the majority of the time, as long as you are not tearing up (damaging) the trails. Just don't get yourself in over your head. Know your vehicles limitations.
