I just got my first truck a few months ago and my girl wants to take it out camping/off roading, nothing crazy as I will most likely be alone. I'm not new to camping and have taken my civic to more places than many go in their 4wds. Anyway I'm looking for somewhere to go preferably forest near a lake/river with some decent trails that I won't have to worry about getting stuck, only friend with a 4x4 probably won't make it. I'm in San Mateo so looking for something within a few hours.
I've been to Cow Mountain, Indian valley, Panoche, tumey hills. All in my civic but Iím looking for something different. I was thinking about heading up to hope valley, blue lakes, but don't know really what it has to offer.
Thanks in advance, Mike
