If it's the one near me, it's near Hollister which is about 20 miles from San Jose, Ca. Not really in your neighborhood.

But I would bet that British Columbia has some spectacular scenery and trails.

If you're able to hop the border into WA, there are some trails out here that needs some CF exploring. We've done a little lite off-roading out in North Bend and are looking at heading north to Snohomish County in the near future.

Hell ya Sarge! When you get back we'll tear it up somewhere around here. Your first cup of Manischewitz is on me! Me and 'The boys' (iggy, dcobb, and whoever else can make it) wil give you a proper Wheelin' Welcome Home!

We travel alot in the back country here. Your best bet is to pick up a "Backroad Mapbook" for the area you find yourself in. (There are available at most gas station stores or visit www.backroadmapbooks.com. They cover the entire province by region. The Chilcotin country is fabulous, as is the Caribou. You will never get enough of the country up here. Good luck and enjoy.

I just moved from Socal to Richmond B.C. (just south of Vancouver) with my NISMO Fronty and havent had a chance to even look for anything worthwhile since I've been up here.

Let me know if you find anything and/or want a wheelin partner.

Accel and Westcoastie, Drive up to the BC GTG, in late May, in Squamish, details on this forum in the regional meets area. There is also another book, I think it's called Four wheeling in British Columbia, I can't find my copy right now, My Favourite is the West Harrison lake trail, it starts at Harrison Lake and you can take it all the way to Lilloet, and then to Whistler, there are hot springs and coves, lots of scenery, you can do all of it or a little of it. There's also Blowdown pass, North of here, and lots of stuff in Squamish. Jones Lake near Hope is another good one.

Here's the book;
it's called " the Four Wheeler's Companion, 3rd edition, by Mark Bostwick.
See Zedbra's post about the BC GTG, in the regional area.

thanks whistler ive flown from pemberton to lilloet, down to harrison lake and it looks like itld be a great drive to do. what would it take to drive? couple of hours to a day? welcome to richmond accel, what made you move up here? just a suggestion, avoid driving north on #3rd past lansdown road because it becomes a parking lot with the local drivers and all the construction. if you can drive in richmond, you can drive anywhere.

westcoastie and accel, are you guys originally US citizens? why and how did you manage to move up to BC? my fiancee is a dual-citizen US/Canada. We were looking into moving to BC but its next to impossible for me to get into canada to live and work....let alone the job market in canada isnt too great.

Westcoastie, you can do the West Harrison in a day, and then loop down toWhistler and back to town on 99.
to find the trailhead, go towards Harrison Lake on highway 7, turn left at the Sasquatch Inn, Morris Valley toward Pioneer camp and Chelalis River campsite, continue past the Hemlock Valley turnoff towards wolf lake, and there you are, the first part is an easy unpaved section, 1/3 of the way up it gets a bit harder, but it's a gorgeous drive. Fill up just before the Sasquatch and take along a full fuel can just in case you explore some of the side trails.

Westcoastie, you won't be needing skids if you stay on the main road, if you take the other roads like to 5 mile bay, or up towards sloquet hotsprings you might need them. Plan on 5 or 6 hours for the trip to Lilooet, if you do it during the week watch out for logging trucks. Pack a lunch, and bring along rain gear if there is one cloud in the sky.
When do you plan on doing West Harrison? if it's a Sunday I might be persuaded to join you.
