Head up highway 70 until you get to Oroville, Paradise (Pentz Road), or Quincy, depending on how far you want to go. If you get to Oroville take Olive Highway and just keep going up the mountain. I've only been up as far as Bucks Lake (GREAT fishing!), but there are lots of trails up there. If you go to Paradise, just go straight up through Paradise, keep going past Magalia, Stirling City, and Inskip. The road will turn dirt and you'll find lakes and enough trails to get lost on. Up at the High Lakes (stay right on all the trails) there is some pretty hard-core wheeling spots. They are in the process of paving the road between Inskip and Butte Meadows, so BM will be more accessible (lots of wheeling up there too). I don't know much about Quincy, only that there is wheeling there too.

If you are going to go, wait until a good rainstorm has passed by. The mud is loads of fun. In December there will be feet of snow, so the trails won't be easy to navigate.

FORDYCE is fun but parts of it can be a little too difficult for even very capable rigs. definitely do not go to that trail by yourself.

Hollister Hills is very fun and never boring whether its wet or dry. i grew up in Hollister and my dad took me to the hill many many times. bring tow straps. there will definitely be a dumb*ss or ten that would appreciate your help.

Strawberry canyon off of HWY 50 E past Kyburz about 15 - 20 miles or so is a lot of fun but gets snowed in every year. I dont know about the weather up there right now but i went there in the snow once with the local club here and we had to turn around about a third of the way in. i later went again with the club during late spring and it was an awesome trail.

small part of Strawberry canyon;

Fordyce Creek (off 80 over Donner Summit) is money. Not too crowded, beautiful setting, and mean wheeling.

Strawberry Pass is the correct name, and it's a beautiful trail.

Strawberry Pass goes from 50 to 88 then Deer Creek is from 88 to 4 then Slickrock is off of 4.

Fordyce is harder than the Rubicon. Prairie City is pretty boring. Hollister Hills rocks.

There are also some fire trails up around Pollock pines / Mormon immigrant gap.

I second Hollister Hills SVRA. My wife was just airlifted from there over the Turkey day holiday. Get staff and always helpful. Trails are the best when its raining by the way!!!

Wife was fine by the way. They just took precautions. BTW the Bill from Calstar was $37,000.00. Thank god for Insurance.
