Are you an off-roader living in or visiting the Southern California Mojave Desert area? You have come to the right place. You will find information on our club, upcoming runs, and safety requirements. 

Who We Are



We are based out of the Coachella Valley, near Palm Springs, California. Desert Side Tracs is a family-orientated 4x4 club dedicated to the enjoyment and preservation of 4-wheeling. Our Southern California desert region is surrounded by great 4-wheeling areas including Johnson Valley, Stoddard Valley, Big Bear, Truckhaven, Superstition Mountains, Calico Ghost Town, Joshua Tree National Park, and National Forests. Our monthly club trail runs extend from the high mountains to the low deserts furnishing us with endless opportunities of experiencing enchanting, historically rich and challenging 4-wheeling. Convenient access to such varied terrain means snow, rocks, or sand may be under our wheels at any time.

Our club recognizes California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Club, Blue Ribbon Coalition, CORVA, and  sponsored by Extreme Terrain Off Road Outfitters.    (Click Icons for More Info)

Club Meetings


We invite you to come to our monthly meetings. We discuss what is happening in our off-road community and schedule upcoming runs. Currently, we meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm.   Due to Covid concerns our club has decided that meetings can only take place in an open environment venues​.  Please contact us for meeting locations.


We Are Volunteers



The Desert Side Tracs is a group that volunteers to maintain and clean up an "Adopt A Trail" located east of the Coachella Valley off I-10 at Chiriaco Summit. Our adopted trail, Red Canyon, runs from I-10 to the Bradshaw Trail.

Interested in Club Membership?

All it takes to join our club is to attend one meeting and three club runs over a six month period.  Dues are $40 a year.  You can certainly join us on our runs without being a member by downloading our guest waiver and attend the club run.  The difficulty of the trail you can run with us is determined by the size tires you have and whether or not you have lockers.  A complete explanation of this can be found on our website under FAQ's and Trail Ratings or Contact Us if you have more questions.
