San Francisco "any places to go off roading"

I'm currently working in SF Bay Area and was wondering if there are any place close by to go 4 wheeling? Please let me know if you do

North bay there's a slightly illegal spot at the 101 and highway 37 junction. If you want legal you'll need to head up to the Ukiah area and visit Cow mountain or Lake Pillsbury.

East bay/south bay you'll need to to drive about an hour to hit Hollister hills SVRA, or Frank Raines SVRA.

It's a sweet little spot that dirt bikers and offroaders can be found at on a daily basis. It's just unclaimed property - which makes it slightly illegal. But thanks for getting unnecessarily involved.

There is no such thing as slightly illegal. If they told you they'd like you to leave but can't make you sounds like it's not really illegal.

And if you take a look at the CoC and since you've been around a while - you'll notice that we are against illegal activity and all for responsible offroading. Wheeling spots that are even questionable make trouble for legit offroaders...so your illegal comment started the problem, not me showing up.

Unfortunately, sanctioned off road areas in the bay area are few and far between, Hollister Hills is probably the biggest and most popular around here, Fraink Raines is smaller but also gets used. The other main options involve driving up to the sierras to enjoy.

Subscrib to the NorCal BS thread on this site because ideas for get togethers and wheelin/campin trips usually start in that thread: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/nor...bs-thread.html





We have a big meet this Friday in Dublin if you'd like to come out and meet a whole bunch of us, check out a whole bunch of trucks and grab a tasty burger: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/nor...march-8th.html

I always called that 37 101 junction Hanna Ranch. I grew up very close to it. It doesn't offer much in the way of a challenge, haha. I get up everything in my prerunner no problem.
It used to be cool back in the day when there were dirt jumps for bmx bikes. Some kid hurt himself and all the jumps were bulldozed.

I have been there several times and only once have I been asked to leave but I've never seen the local PD confronting dirt bikers or ATVs

Ya its a pretty fun place if your just looking to mess around and not have much of a challenge. When it rains there's lots of mud to play in. If you go in the back there are some more challenging hills, but there still pretty easy.

Is this an actual trail or open land? Because if it's open land, I always thought it was not a good idea to go ripping through mud due to damage to wildlife (plants and little beings) Mud on a trail is a different story?

I was always taught to stick to the trail.

There's trails so it's not like you'd be going through the grass. It just has a land for lease sign up there, but that sign has been up for almost 10 years or more
