    MY First Time Offroad

    I live in Bay Area near San Francisco. (Mid-Peninsula ) I was hoping to connect with some other people in the Area.

    - any ideas for an easy first time off-road with my new Jeep Rubicon? ( stock right now )
    - I'm thinking I'd like to at least ride on some dirt roads to start.
    - anyone want to show me the ropes a bit?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hey there from Discovery Bay, if you're looking to connect with others in the area there's a bunch of us getting together for a Suds-N-Grub soon. If you're interested post up on the thread and we can add you to the list.

    If you don't mind a bit of driving (3 hours or so) the high lakes are a great place to go. Maybe we can even get Rccrwlr out there it's super easy but with some wheeling in there too. Let me know if you're interested.

    The OHV parks are a good place to start and test things out. For some really mellow fire road stuff there are a lot of them outside of Placerville. I really like the Gold Lake area for a lot of trails that are mostly in the mild to moderate range. All easily doable in a stock Rubicon.

    How did I miss this?? Yeah, let's go. Hollister and High lakes will be perfect. As mild as you want, or I've seen plenty of flops at Hollister. Post up some dates when you can go and we will try to be there and RC can back out 😉😀😉

    Alright, I'll plan a Hollister run. Can anyone swing a weekday trip? I know some of us have mentioned unused PTO and some can do a Friday trip. Ideas welcomed.

    Blade, sorry about the thread hijack, I'll start a proper thread when we have some specifics.

    Hollister is a great place to get your feet wet. trails are color coded for difficulty and they give you a map of the trails.. if you get turned around just take the short cut through Tank Trap.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
