NorCal East Bay Offroad sites?

Hey guys,

Are there any cool spots to go offroading near the east bay? Im not talkin about anything supercrazy but something not too far from here to go have fun with the truck. Small rivers beds, mud, dirt etc. I would appreciate any spots. THanks

I use to live in Antioch and for what you are asking for is not to far away. Take 580 (I think that is the freeway to go towards Livermore) and when you hit I-5 Go south. There is an area to go wheelin about 5-10 miles down I-5. I don't remember the offramp but I'm sure if you poke around you will find it. Mostly flat, river beds, had some great mud lots of open space.

You can also cruise down to Holister Hills. Take 101 to 25 go to holister and follow the signs. Really great off roading there.

Have fun

Bringing this back to add some input.

Carnige is in the process of being closed or might be closed already. Frank Raines is the place farther down 5. Its designed more for bikes like Carnige but there are a few trails you can get to. Nice mud pit after some rain. Spent a weekend out there and had fun even in my 2wd. Another close place is Prairie City. Its NE of Sacramento on 50 near Rancho Cordova. 5 bucks to get in, dedicated 4x4 section. Can have some good mud after a long rain but is small enough that its only really a days worth. There are a ton of trails in the Tahoe area or farther west out by Santa Rosa and Ukiah. I bought a book that lists all of the Nor Cal trails with lots of details about them.

Prairie City OHV is off of Hwy 50 east of Sac. Wouldn't want anyone to head up the wrong freeway.

Prairie City SVRA - The link says the 4x4 area is closed for renovation, due to re-open in Oct.
