So, any one else in the bay area? I picked mine up yesterday and aside from crawling during rush hour traffic, where are some good spots to take her out?

would love to get a little crew together at some point and do some group events too, anything like that would be great for down the road.

I've taken it out a couple times, nothing really crazy yet (and don't know if I'm going to do all those super hard technical ones - she's so pretty right now).

this one was the most recent, a little city - city through the woods drive a little north of Sacramento. 20 something miles total. Sorry for the poor video quality, I was the one driving and can't film and drive at the same time and my friend apparently doesn't know how to hold a camera. :/

That looks pretty sick. That was a solid climb. I got to hit up Knoxville OHV park a few weeks back. That was glorious.

Thanks, that spot was 'easier' than the spot that I had just driven through a few minutes before that - to the point that it was safer for my friend to jump out and get some video of it. Wish I would have gotten some from the spot right before it though. Football sized/shaped rocks and a slightly steeper incline with high sides on either sides of the road


I was looking at Knoxville, it's a bit of a drive (but aren't they all), was it worth checking out?

Haha they are all a drive away that is true. I think Knoxville is worth it. The drive up to the south entrance can be impassable during the rainy season so keep that in mind. Lots of challenges off the “main” dirt road. It’s great for a day trip. I combined it with a trip to Lake Berryessa to breakup all the driving.
Lots of beautiful campsites and recovering landscapes

Highly recommend that you plan it with a visit to Lake Berryessa

Thanks for the tips. Maybe at some point we could meet for a trip with others in the area. I haven't been to Hollister in quite a few years but might even be up for a trip back that way.

I'm new to the Bay Area and new to Jeeps as I just got a 4xe Sahara. My daughter and I did a light break-in on Old Coast Road yesterday and had a great time. From Mountain View, it was 6 hours total, including a lunch at Phil's Fish Market. I'd like to join some meet-ups and find some groups in the area.

Hi,
I just put an order in for a rig and hopefully it'll show up sooner than later. Would love to join the group and get out on the trails.

I'm in the east bay and just picked up my 392 Wrangler a few weeks ago. Definitely interested in getting together.
