North of the Bay area is Cow Mt. OHV or Mendocino National Forest. Lost Coast even further north. Usal Road is pretty cool in the spring.

If you really want a trek, the Rubicon up North.

I'd be glad to tag along to any of them, any time!

I got another fairly close to the bay area for you to try out. Take 580 south to 5 and take the Patterson offramp head 16 miles west to Frank Raines ORV. ( check it out on line) Lots of short trails with plenty of climbs. Also a mud hole to get stuck in. I have gone midweek and had the park to myself. On the weekends you could share with dirt bikes, buggys and all sorts of 4x4s. I also like Holister Hills. The 4x4 area has no dirt bikes and the trails and obstacle course is fun too. Nice views at the top of the mountain. Both parks are only 5 bucks a day. Have fun

Hollister has something for everyone. It's 800 acres with 24 miles of trails. They are marked: green is simple, blue is moderate and black is difficult. I have been on almost all black diamond trails with my jeep without breaking anything or getting stuck

Sounds good. On the east side of HWY 5 is plenty of gas stations and I always get a Subway to eat in the picnic grounds at the park. There is also a campground in the park that fills up on the weekend. Take your camera. I'v seen deer and other critters back in there. Oh yea, watch for cows standing in the road on the way in. Have fun

Hi again. I just moved to Nevada and before my wife and I moved we drove Hwy 88 twice a month. There are a bunch of trails that branch off 88 from easy to hard. I got to play in the snow last week. There is a place called Pi Pi Valley but I think it's a 2 wheel park. I got a friend in Tracy that goes there and camps and rides his dirt bike. If you want some backwoods trails check it out. I wouldn't advise going alone. If you havent checked out the you tube videos, Rubicon run 3 parter, it's prety cool. A family from Canada went though there alone and almost didn't make it. If it wasn't for a Jeep Jamboree running the pass, they would probably still be up there. Keep em rolling!

I saw your post about camping at FR. It is probably just a one day park but if you want to do the camping thing it would be up to you. I met some folks there that were camping with big hauler trailers and loved it. It is back in a ways and outside of the offroaders is prety quiet. Day use is 5 bucks a day and I think Camping is about 14 bucks a night. The water there is undrinkable so bring you own. I think for a first timer I would just go for the day and check it out. Plus, I think it is suppose to rain this weekend. Have fun

The Solano Trailbusters club is in Vacaville. Look em up on Facebook (their web page hasn't been updated for a long time).

Other than that, close trails is relative to how far you want to drive. Up at Alpine lake is Slick Rock Trail, north in Gold Lake Basins are a few trails, El Dorado County has some trails.

Those are some I can think of right now...
