Holister hills..... educate me

So my brother lives in the bay area and I live in socal. He is a pending father so we are trying to get one last camping/wheeling trip in before he has his hands full for a while. I was thinking of going up to Hollister hills and having him meet me to camp. So a few questions.

How is the camping? First come first served, reservation or go during the week and were fine?

Summer weather?

Wheeling. Is it a bunch of actual trails or just an open area to go mess around in? Being aways from home and being solo (his T*yota 4 $&@ is 2wd) I don't want to worry about getting stuck or broken in unfamiliar territory.

Any Hollister trips going on in the near future?

Thanks guys!
Mike

We ran it back in March. Lots of cool trails and two obstacle courses. $5 a day to wheel an $10 to camp. It's dusty and will be getting pretty hot soon. Some pics from my thread to give you an idea.

My window is sooner then I thought. Were shooting for june 7, 8, 9. His T*yot@ will hold down the campsite nicely. Ok so it sounds like a good place to camp for a few days and explore. Good deal.

Check out Frank Raines. Another great off-road place in the bay area.
