About CA4WDC

WE ARE ... Dedicated ... Determined ... On the Move...

We're the California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, Inc. Since 1959, our non-profit organization has actively promoted the advancement of vehicle oriented outdoor recreation. Today, the association represents over 8,000 members and 160 member clubs. We are the largest organization of this type in California and represent owners of all makes and models of 4WD vehicles, as well as non-owners who support responsible vehicle-oriented recreation.

Helping 4 Wheelers...

We maintain a full-time office in Sacramento. Our staff and volunteers work closely with legislators and land use managers to provide input, influence, expertise, and manpower to keep lands open to 4WD vehicle access. Many successful battles have been waged and won to keep trails open all over the state. We keep our members informed about important issues and changing laws through our bimonthly magazine, In Gear, and regular email updates.

Having fun...

Members enjoy association-sponsored events all year round. These events cover every type of terrain in every corner of the state. Whether you are interested in extremely challenging "hard rock" trails for the experienced enthusiast, or milder runs for the new four-wheeler, we have several events just for you. Many of our member clubs also sponsor monthly runs open to all.

Making a difference...

Our members are active in conservation projects throughout California. Projects, which are coordinated with local agencies, can range from tree planting to removing junk cars from remote areas, from closing off entrances of hazardous mine shafts to repairing trail damage. We have received national recognition by winning "Take Pride in California" awards, and "Volunteers For Public Lands" national awards. Many clubs also have Adopt-A-Trails that they maintain.
