Hey there OB,

Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for walk in, no reservation, or easy off road trails with camping in California.

I have little to no experience off roading an am driving a stock 2017 4x4 Chevy Colorado.

I dont have experience in San Fran but my suggestion would be to find some free land use (in Canada we call it crown land).
You could also look into National Forests in your area, I believe they allow free camping and im sure some have some dirt roads and trails you could get in to.

It would really help to know what area you are looking at.

Death Valley would be hard to beat. We just finished a week out there, you can see and read about in my trip report if you like. The Mojave Road would also be a great trip, it's on my list as well.

Alabama Hills near Lone Pine is a good place to start, seems to be very popular and lots to see around that area.
Almost can't go wrong, even on a semi-crowded weekend.
