If people are up for it, my place can be the spot!

I'm extremely close to pulling the trigger on a TRX4 and hacking away at it - I'm in LA as well.

Just need to swallow the initial cost of buy in and i'm in. Would love to rip some trails with a few other trucks.


The whole reason I wanted to get back into RC (I've been out of it for 7+ years) and go the crawler route is because there's so much vertical terrain out here. I live right next to Elysian Park for quick runs, and then I've got a lot of places in mind up in the Angeles National Forest that seem to be begging for a crawl. Just cruise up the 2 from La Canada Flintridge - Switzer Falls has a nice rocky creek and trails, all the way up to Mt Wilson and Snowcrest for some more extreme terrain.

Iím in the La Canada area and take my truck out all the time. Recently Iíve been going up ach to the snow and down by jpl there is a creek side trail. The truck is a blast at both. Iíve also been doing some night crawling around the area since installing some lights on my trx4. If youíre ever taking your truck out or would like to come along just shoot me a message.

I've been going up the 2 pretty much every other day and crawling at Switzer Falls since the ACH has been closed at Mt Wilson with that rockslide situation, although the water flow has been insane the last few days. I was crossing at a typically shallow point and the truck got swept downstream and got caught fully submerged until I could climb out there and grab it, haha. I did try and take Big Tujunga the other day to find a new spot but the terrain was a bit too extreme and I was running out of light. Sucks I didn't see this sooner but I'll definitely shoot you a message next time I'm up there!

I did Little Tujunga Canyon Road today (further west, entering at Osborne Rd off the 210) and found a nice rocky trail climb over at the picnic area where that ranger station is (something bear picnic area). Left unsatisfied and ended up at Vasquez Rocks and had an absolute blast, again ran out of light but if you haven't been up there it's like a crawling Mecca - I can't wait to go back.

Couple pics from the day below. Bronco body is getting so beat up but still looks nice in photos!

El Modena Open Space is really really good crawling. It's pretty spread out but there are some gems. Be prepared to hike several hours along the course of the paths.

Corona Del Mar is also pretty close and the Rocky beach area is excellent.

I'm down in Oceanside so don't get up to LA often, but when I do it's one of those two.

All of the local groups and comps are announced on facebook. Active local clubs you can search for:
Renegade Rock Runners
LA RC crawlers
Crazy Crawlers
Creep N' Crawlers

We hit Corona Del Mar rocks most weekends - I don't think I've been there when there wasn't at least a few other crawlers there.
the local clubs are great, nice bunch of enthusiasts, with some kind of an event by one of these groups almost every weekend.

Be sure to come up to Apple Valley for Proline by the Fire event coming up May 18. It's an annual even that will likely draw over 400 participants this year.

I haven't been in the scene for a bit myself, but I'm in thousand oaks near Marty's hobbies. They have an indoor crawl area. Tons of hills by my place too. Used to crawl in Vasquez rocks alot. Just finishing prepping my scx10.
