Default Hollister Hills Rec Area? Recommendations?
I'm thinking of trying this park out but was wondering if anyone has done it? I'm a complete novice so not looking for something crazy and would like some trail recommendations. And yes I would be pretty upset if my five-month-old truck has a giant gash in the aluminum body or comes out completely scratched up. Is the Raptor too wide for the trails?

its more suited for quads and dirt bikes. there is a truck/4x4 area, but its small. if you are looking for some offroading, theres an event just outside reno next month

Ha beat me to it! Yeah come with us on 9/30! I have been to Hollister a few times, and it is true, it is more for jeeps and smaller trucks but I have had fun there in the past. It is a lot closer than pismo svra or nevada's BLM land so it makes for a good quick day trip. All are welcome, we can widen the trails a bit :)

Hollister is for the dirt bikes mainly.

It is a fun day trip but it is definitely tight. You will end up with some Sierra pin striping added to your truck. I recommend going up to the Hector Heights overlook. Pretty cool view up there. The raptor is good to go on the green and blue trails. The blacks were a little too hairy for my taste (since I was rolling solo). I am busy on the 30th but would love to go with other raptors sometime.

@bigrig @gryGhst17 @Hemkin57. Would be great to meet up but I have a wedding that I have to go to on 09/30. If you guys go again let me know as I would love to meet up with fellow owners as well.

If anyone knows of any good fire roads in the South Bay/Monterey area that aren't too crazy solo would appreciate the info.
