Difficult. Easy drive to obstacle course. Fremonita Road is narrow and steep with loose rock. McCray Road is moderate but quite steep and narrow. The Tank Trap is an axle twister in a narrow, high-banked ravine.


Hollister Hills State Vehicular Recreation Area was originally a private hunting club. Patrons used Jeeps, motorcycles, and 'totegoats' to get around the trails on the ranch. In 1975, the area became an OHV park.
