Here is one more teaser video from last week's trip driving by very nice creekside camping and heading into rougher jeep trails. Route gets hard to find on naked rock at times.Fortunately TW can wander around to find optional paths.
I have been posting these vids to share some of the fun i have while trying to convey sensation of free riding on slick rock as all too soon colder weather will be upon us. Well me at least, many of you live in more southern climates and will have to entertain us snowbound riders with your tales this winter.

Be honest Fred, did you have any clue where you were going and how did you make your way out or back to where you started?

I know when I hike on granite like that it is hard to stay on the trail. I imagine exploring trails like that on a TW, I would just get more lost that much quicker!

Good point Brian. Actually I have been to this area before so had a feel for the terrain, I used to camp along creek when road was drivable by my Toyota HiLux many years ago. But you are correct in that TW flows quickly over the rocks allowing me to get lost much quicker than when afoot, easy to zig when I should have zagged.

The only place I go is to Hollister Hills OHV State Park. I have become obsessed with The Challenge Loop and trying to get through it in < 1 hour. If I can't get around it once in < 1 hour I will try to get around it twice in < 2 hours and 20 minutes (or maybe 30 minutes).

Tony, the videos you have posted from Hollister make those trails look very challenging and inviting. One way traffic or can you practice in both directions? ORV park remain open in wet weather?

Most trails are one way. As for wet weather, they will close parts of it and leave it closed until those trails mostly dry out. That adobe is like grease when it is wet. (I have heard it called "snot" which is a fairly accurate description.)

San Andreas Fault runs through the center of the park. On the other side it is sandy and rocky and has pine trees. "My half" is adobe and oak trees.
