The Wilderness Awaits
Needing a little time away from the hustle and bustle of working downtown in the Financial district, one of our favorite wilderness escapes is the Ventana Wilderness. If you've got a four wheel drive and a weekend free (and don't mind having zero cell service) this is the perfect wilderness adventure playground within a 2-3 hour drive of the city (also perfect if you've got a dog!). The trails are endless, and there are rarely crowds if you enter the wilderness from the eastern border. Great for a quick weekend trip or even a week long trek if you've got the time.
