Carnegie State Vehicle Recreation Area
One of the most popular ATV trails in California, this state vehicle recreation area offers a diversity of terrain that’s ideal for 4-wheeler riding, including rolling hills, steep rugged canyons, rocky washes and sandpits.
The area has over 1,500 acres of riding area that includes more than 80 miles of trails, and offers ATV riders and UTV riders of all skill levels a great place to ride. No “Johnny-come-lately,” Carnegie began as a preferred spot for ATV riding in the 1930’s and 1940’s after years as first a cattle-grazing area, then a popular picnic area. Races were held here in the 1950s, and in the next decade, the privately-owned land was home to the Carnegie Motorcycle Park, until 1979, when the state bought the land to provide a place for off-roading in CA.
