Hollister Hills SVRA is a 6,800-acre SVRA park and was the first SVRA made by the California parks department. The park is divided into three parts, the Upper Ranch, Lower Ranch, and Hudner Ranch. The Lower Ranch is for dirtbikes. While the Upper Ranch and Hudner Ranch are for 4x4s, visitors should stop first at the ranger station in the Lower Ranch to pay the $5 entry fee and get a map of the trails, as well as the lock combination to the gate at Hudner Ranch.

Raptors Ravine is a moderately difficult trail in the Hudner Ranch portion of Hollister Hills SVRA. The trail doesn't have any major technical obstacles, just a few steep hills. However, the trail is narrow, and drivers with wide vehicles may have a hard time navigating the trail. The entirety of Hudner Ranch is perfect for new off-roaders to test their skills with low-risk but entertaining trails. There is no camping directly off of the trail, but campsites are available in nearby Hudner Ranch and require a prior reservation.
