Hi, I just got my new FJ. I tried it out on a small and (for the FJ) easy trail in Redding, while I was visiting a colleague. During the next weekend I'd like to try something else, maybe slightly more difficult. I live on the S. Francisco peninsula... I am new to the country and I don't know exactly how bad the traffic both on the freeway and the trails will be on the Independence Day weekend.

Any advice?

bye, thank you

WEll welcome to the forum and the addiction that will come from mods to the FJ.. This might not be the greatest weeknd for a trip since everything is bound to be packed.. But if you want to brave it you can try Hollister, Frank rains, Cranegie. I know there are some parks up around Sacramanto.. Hope to see you out on the trail sometime.. Just not next weekend...:bigthumb:

So you're saying it will be very crowded... but you know, I have to try my new vehicle :) Thank you for the information!

bye
I think it will.. yeha I understand about getting out there to test your new rig.. I have a new lift on mine and I have not had a chance to test it out..
But since I cannot stand being in line to get on a trail this weekend is out for me.. :bigthumb:

Hollister Hills SVRA is pretty nice and has quite a few trails. Attached is the link for Hollister.
Thank you. I has a look at the website and they have some small maps. Do you know if I can get better maps? Maybe they have maps for sale at the entrance?

Which part or trail do you think I should begin with? I think I'm planning to go there Saturday morning.

Thank you

Manoweb,

You do get a map, I don't remember how detailed it is but will try to find mine to refresh my memory and give you a better idea what they provide. The trails are marked like ski runs in black, blue, and green for difficulty level.

First time I went, I explored Hector Heights, the Quarry, and checked out the obstacle course. You will find the stock FJ is very capable.

The Norcal guys went there beginning of May and posted a report with some pics. Unfortunately I missed that run but check it out.

You get a map at the Rangers station where you pay your day use fee. The map is pretty good, should be able to find your way around pretty easy using it. As I said they rate the trails and I did all the intermediate trails in my stock FJ.

If you and Steve meet for a beer on Thursday, I can show you the map. Steve spent more time there and can probably tell you the challenging trails to hit.
