Hi there!

Absolute Newb here, looking for some SoCal guidance. I'm trying to cut my teeth on a weekend exploratory mission through Cleveland National Forest's Trabuco district. Wanted to get out and start building up my experience with my vehicle (Subaru Forester) while exploring some local flora and topography. Any suggestions for dispersed campgrounds, beginner trails, POIs? Also, do I need to get a pass to explore the area? Reading about recreation permits and this is all new to me, calling out for some guidance here!
