The wife wants to go riding and wants to head over to the hills. She wants to camp as well.

Is there camping around there? How is parking and access for a big flatbed trailor? Are the trails good for beginners on a quads? My wife and 12 year old daughter will be on TRX 250 quads Ill take a TRX 450 quad or my Husky. The girls dont ride much so dont want to get them in over their heads and ruin the chances of them going again.

There is camping,when i went a few years ago people were there with toy haulers i really didnt care for hollister,gorman is more quad friendly more open space more camp grounds and about the same distance and like every were else you do need spark arrestors at both places.I wont take my girls to hollister its just not beginer friendly in my opinion,hope this helps.

Gorman more quad friendly, and yes its likely dusty as hell.

If you want a more family freindly getaway on quads why not hit pismo dunes? Ocean clean sand shops (for the gals) unless you are lookin for trees.

I got an 18" paddle tire you can have ...

I went out there a few weeks ago and was super sloppy. Wouldn't mind spending a little shovel time out there but figured it would get tore back up really quick. I am far from pro but wouldn't mind riding out there with someone sometime. My buddies went a month ago right after it rained and said there was like 10 riders out there. If u guys go and want another shoot me a pm or something. :D
