Are there any good locations in the San Francisco bay area that would work for a forest nude shoot; preferably where one can have some seclusion but is still accessible to a wheelchair user?

I don't want to use Golden Gate Park (too crowded/busy).

Do you want only forest for the seclusion and...forest? Or any outside place that is secluded?

How about ...

Big Basin Redwoods State Park
The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park
Henry W Coe State Park

You may want to do a little scouting on your own before doing an actual shoot to any one of these locations.

Muir Woods isn't very secluded. There are buses dropping people off all the time and the parking lot backs up.

I'd look up East Bay Regional Parks. Closer to you... (and I also recommend scouting first anyway)  And make sure you won't get grief for going off trail on any of these parks--which is usually the case when there are paved trails

Coe is good.  I have been there and been alone for most of the time in the park

Point Reyes.  And the lighting is usually great, nice and foggy.

Not quite the SF Bay Area location that the OP was looking for.

what's your range? there's big basin (or pretty much all the 'wooded' areas between san jose and santa cruz). all those hills and such west of the 280 are probably nice, too.

but if you have a decent range in mind, i'd just head up 101 to point reyes--or even further north.

edit:all my shit has already been mentioned. hell, drive up to garberville and get on the ave of the giants.

i'd love to shot a nude right in the drive-thru tree in leggett.smile

WTF does his studio workshop in LA have to do with finding a forest to shoot in?

Ok, now convinced this guy is not only a spammer but an idiot.
