Try Hollister Hills off road park near Hollister. It's about 30 minutes East of Monterey.

There's a Roll Call LA thread with guys from all around Southern Cal. There's also a Orange County thread here somewhere.

What do you consider 'your area' and how far do you want to drive and how extreme do you want to wheel?

Hollister is the closest. Most other land is private, although you might find some BLM land around if you research it, but could'nt tell you if it's worth wheeling. Pismo is down 101 a couple hrs. if you're into dunes. And for good Sierra Mtn. wheeling, 2.5-3 hrs. east are many awesome 4x4 trails. Of course, you'll have to drive across "the valley" to get there! 105* just the other day.

You're just trying to keep people out of your sweet wheeling spots.

Still trying to figure a way down there by fall, but don't know if it'll work out.

You have some great areas above Fresno. I did a run up to shuteye last month and had a great trip. I run with Mariposa Jeep club and ran into two other clubs when we were up there.

Hollister is a nice day trip with some trails to run up and down. if you ever head that way and need someone to roll with pm me. If i am free I am always down to hit a trail. what brings you to Monterey from Virginia?
