I would maybe look somewhere closer to sf for your first trip... maybe holister OHV which has camping and riding.. I work in Shaver lake and Reside in Oakhurst and know the area well but you have a long slab ride from SF.. do you own a truck? Im sure it would be 5 hrs at least for the trip to Shaver which is the gateway to dinkey creek and lakes.. But instead of dinkey lakes which are actually pond like.. I would aim to do a ride to Edison Lake above Huntington.. there is dispersed camping which means you can camp anywhere and the road is dirt and gravel with road stretches.. not good to ride alone to remote rocky places !
