Bay Area (SF / San Jose) Easy Trails?

Anyone know of any easy trails between San Francisco and San Jose, or as close to that as possible? Ideally unmaintained dirt roads that are legal to drive on.

I'm also interested in Jeep clubs in the area but need to upgrade my equipment first.

Hollister would be my first suggestion. I "think" it would be about an hour from SJ. There's a lot of clearly dirt trails and an offroad playground play it but always bring a buddy would can pull you out.
