Bay Area CA Offroad Trails

Whats up guys? Not sure if posted in the right forum, but bear with me

So next week Jeep is repurchasing my vehicle under the lemon law. Before I say goodbye to the flawed dame, I would like to take her offroad and actually use the six little Toggles in my 4X4 system.

Having never left the pavement, I have no idea of any offroad areas or trails near the bay area, CA preferably near the peninsula (Palo Alto, CA).

Anyone have any advice on that? Also any general tips for off roading and/or not damaging the vehicle while offroading? Thanks guys. I have had a Jeep since 2008 (Commander, 2011 GC, 2014 GC) but havent explored my manly side in taking them off road. Cheers

Might I ask what kind of issues you had with your Jeep? I have visited our dealer more often in the first few months of ownership than I have in five years with other cars. Frustrating to say the least.

Jeep is purchasing back a car defective in certain area(s). It would suck if you damaged the truck and Jeep would refuse the buy-back / accept the car because it now has additional damage/defective issues/etc. I would park it and not do anything off-road.

I'd tend to agree.

Not really hard trails, but if you head up and over Mt Hamilton past the observatory, on the far side the road has a ford and becomes one lane on the way... there is a bit there, but there ain't a lot of good OR stuff near you.

When I lived there, I used to head over to Reno, then head down toward Vegas but turn off in the Silver Peak area before getting to Tonopah. Careful if wet, the mud is like snot slippery, but will really really give you a new exterior and undercoat.
