Along with family oriented activities including camp outs, day trail rides and social events, we work to keep trails open through the adopt-a-trail program, work with other off-highway vehicle user groups and local Forest Service representatives.
The SLO County 4WD Club has maintained an open membership and our activities range from serious rock crawling to scenic cruises on the backroads of our public lands. It is because of and through our diversified members interests that this club continues to grow and tries to offer four-wheel drive fun for just about everyone.
Dues are $25 per year. If you join in the last three months of the year you will get the next year free!
We encourage our club members to join the California Four Wheel Drive Association. The SLO 4-Wheelers are part of this organization that has been working to keep our trails open since they formed in 1959. Cal4Wheel sponsors several events throughout California, including the Molina Ghost Run at Hollister SVRA.
Every Cal4Wheel event offers run for every type of vehicle and driver, and most events feature camping, meals and a drawing for prizes like winches and tires.
Dues are $45 per year and include a subscription to their In Gear magazine, decals, discounts on event registrations, and a membership card.
You are welcome to attend one of our meetings as a guest at any time. You don’t even need to own a four-wheel drive vehicle. We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. Check the bottom of this page for the address.
Our members go on a wide variety of runs, from relaxing scenic drives to the coast, all the way up to overnight adventures that require shorter wheelbases and more specialized equipment. We can help you decide which runs would be right for you.
It’s only $20 per year to be a member of our club. We use those funds to operate. Excess funds are donated annually to various off-highway vehicle organizations to help with the effort to keep our trails open.
We do not have any requirements that you attend meetings or go on a certain number of runs to become a member. You can join at any of our meetings, or download the form that appears on this page and mail it to us with your annual dues payment.
Any vehicle with four-wheel drive is suitable. Our members drive all makes, models and wheelbases, including full-size trucks and specialized rock crawlers. Bring whatever you have! We’ll show you how to use it.
