Four-wheelers looking for new adventures in Northern California now have a new asset at their disposal. Replete with more than 400 photos, Chuck Wells' new guide, Northern California Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails, covers 75 different trails, from easy to difficult, and includes 85 maps as well as GPS waypoints.

The region is divided into nine areas, with trails then listed by area. Each trail section includes total length, a description of the terrain, available services, and even available maps of the area from the USGS and other aftermarket vendors.

The majority of the trails covered here are located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, but Wells also includes some coastal trails that range along sandy beaches and through the redwood forests.

Whether you're just beginning to explore the trails of Northern California, or you're simply looking for a trail you haven't already explored, this guide will add tremendously to your four-wheeling fun.
