    So I have a stock 2003 Disco and I just moved to southern California. I want to spend some time exploring the mountains around here but I don't really want to dump a bunch of money into off-road mods. Are there any trails down here that would be fun in a stock Disco? I'm not planning on doing anything crazy, just looking to get lost for an afternoon. Thanks in advance!

    I've tried almost every guidebook and app out there. Still the best, easiest to use for me is the Guide to California Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails by Charles A. Wells and Matt Peterson. They have a great easy/moderate/difficult rating system that I find mostly accurate. Available in print and online (kindle) and app-based (at least IOS). Highly recommended. That plus Google Offline maps on your tablet/phone will get you a long way (and keep you found too.)

    I'm currently wandering around Anza Borrego desert as I write this, BTW.
