About Us

The San Diego 4 Wheelers is a family-oriented organization dedicated to to the promotion and participation in safe and responsible off-highway four wheel drive activities. Our mission is to support like-minded individuals in sharing the off-road experience in Southern California. We promote the responsible exploration, enjoyment, and protection of both public and private lands; educate and enlist others to protect and restore the quality of the natural habitat; and enjoy camaraderie in the experience of nature. We respect all laws and are committed to ensuring that public and private lands are available to off-roading enthusiasts and others for generations to come.

The club meets the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Automotive Museum in Balboa Park. A minimum of one run (usually more) per month is scheduled. Guests are always welcome at our meetings and runs. All vehicles must pass a safety inspection.

The Club schedules all types of runs:

  • Hardcore runs to challenge the most built up vehicle and experienced driver.
  • Scenic runs for stock vehicles and/or novice drivers.
  • Instruction and training in 4 wheeling techniques (novice drivers welcome).
