Heya Fellas and Ladies. Only have lived in the bay area for just under 2 years and I am looking for some nice back country destinations (stock sport S) that are not to difficult a trail or route to get to. Hoping to get some destinations from the group. Thank you in advance. Any Suggestions would be appreciated.

Visit the Sierra Buttes North of Sacramento. There is a video here that Eddie made up that shows some of it. It is perfect for a stock sport and has an awesome hike up to the fire lookout tower. Then run the Gold Lake trail to Gold Lake. Awesome scenery!

Have fun this weekend! If you go a couple miles down the Gold Lake trail you will pass by Little Deer Lake. We backed the rig into the woods there and camped in a sweet spot overlooking the lake. No one around and super beautiful.

Make sure you wheel all the way up the hiking trail gate that goes to the fire tower. We had people hiking up that road just begging for a ride!

It's not quite back country, but it's real pretty, Jedediah Smith State Park is a great area. College of the Giants in Northern California is pretty cool. Mendocino Coast and points north are pretty.

Can someone link that video of the Sierra Buttes area that Eddie made? I am having trouble locating it.
