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.

Located in the San Bernardino National Forest, Big Bear is our summertime get-a-way. Big Bear has dozens of trails ranging from well-maintained to rugged and challenging. Some of our favorite trails in the area include but are not limited to John Bowl, Holcomb Creek, Gold Mountain, and Dishpan Springs.
