The SFamateur astronomers club has permission to use Mt. Tam at night (they had a key to the gate) - bit I think that changed during COVID.. Even further, but Lassen is a pretty good place for viewing too.
TAC has permission to use Monte Bello parking lot on certain Wednesdays. I used to be a permit holder.
Still have a 10’ dob, a couple of 4” doublets and an 8” cass.
