Default Best trails in Central Cali?

What are the best trails in Central Cali? My goal is to compile a list of trails extending from the Bay Area down to LA and over the Nevada California border. Please list you top trials or trips in this area! and if you have a trial out side of this region feel free to post it any way.

Tanks!

My top 3 trails

1.) Forest Road 29S02 AKA "Black Mt rd", located just north of Pozo in the Los Padres National Forest. Miles and miles of winding fire roads with lots of moderate to difficult rock sections.

2.) Forest Road 5N12 AKA "W Camino Cielto", this is located in the mountains of Santa Barbara, and offers some moderate level fire roads with an UNBELIEVABLE view of the Pacific Ocean and Lake Cachuma.

Hollister is great. There is tons of opportunity for everyone to have fun, and if you get up high enough, there are some nice views of the valley. I used to ride dirt bikes a lot more on the lower range side. It's a great place to get away and camp for a weekend.

My jeep needs a little work before I feel confident taking it offload again, but I hope that I can meet you guys out there more this summer.

I've never been there(to the rubicon), but I bet it won't be long before rubicon is posted up here!
