Welcome to Gear Grinders 4 Wheel Drive Club!

Established in 1971 and located in Ridgecrest, California, we are a family oriented group of four-wheelers dedicated to promoting responsible off-road fun and protecting our natural resources.Our club takes pride in its support of Tread Lightly on Public lands. We are comprised of outgoing, fun loving, patriotic and responsible members who share the same love of off-roading and the outdoors. Guests are always welcome, so contact us if you will be in the area.  We’ll let you know where we are going and when.

The U.S.  National Forest Service Adopt-A-Trail program is critically  important to the 4-Wheeling community.  It allows us to interact directly  with the Forest Service, giving a "face" to the 4-Wheeling community  that might otherwise go unnoticed.  Maintaining our presence in the forest  ensures that we can continue to have access to the wonderful trails and scenery  that we all enjoy so much.

Adopt-A-Trail gives us the  opportunity to give back to the environment, and allows us to help ensure that  the forest is available to ALL people and all activities.  It proves that  we can responsibly enjoy our chosen sport without irreversibly damaging the  surrounding environment.
