We spent a few days over the winter break in Santa Cruz, CA and after enjoying the boardwalk and biking, we decided to check out some trails on our way home.
Santa Cruz has its own mountains but after reading a few forums I realized it wouldn’t be a good idea to go up there as most of it is private roads.
Hollister offers an SVRA area that has trails for off road vehicles, including dirt bikes, atv, and a separate 4×4 trail. It has a map marked with easy, more moderate, and difficult type terrain. We went through easy, moderate, and even landed a more difficult trail.
I’ve just been testing the limits with this 2016 Tacoma as is and plan to get larger tires, rock sliders, etc. in the future.
