Tackle the Best Jeep Off-Road Trails Near Berkeley

  • Carnegie SVRA: A fantastic recreational area for off-roaders in the East Bay, Carnegie SVRA provides more than 1,300 acres of terrain. An ideal venue whether you’re a beginner or an expert, it offers plenty of varied trails and terrain for motorcycles and ATVs, so you can tow yours behind your Jeep, then travel through rolling hills and steep canyons. Day parking is just $5, and you’ll find camping facilities with fire rings, water faucets, restrooms, and coin-operated showers.
  • Hollister Hills SVRA: Set in the Gabilan Mountains just off Highway 25, Hollister Hills SVRA provides off-road trails for trucks, motorcycles, and ATVs. The 800-acre Upper Ranch is strictly reserved for four-wheel drive vehicles and motorcycles, while the 3,300-acre Lower Ranch is set apart for motorcycles and ATVs. Elevations range from 660 to 2,425 feet, and camping is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • South Cow Mountain: This sprawling 60,000-acre recreation area provides space for non-motorized recreation in its northern stretch and off-highway vehicles to the south. The terrain is perfectly rugged, and there are more than 120 miles of vehicle trails – expect rocks, loose dirt, hard pack, and elevations between 800 and 4,000 feet. Better yet, there are no fees for entry, parking, or camping, though permits are required.
  • Knoxville Recreation Area: Covering nearly 18,000 acres of varying terrain, Knoxville is great for ATVs. Just keep in mind that you’re on public land – that means approved safety helmets must be worn.
