Any easy dirt riding in the south bay suitable for pillion ?

Discussion in 'Bay Area Bikers' started by Rob Kleinschmidt, May 9, 2014.

  1. Looking to find some very easy dirt roads or trails in
    the south bay suitable for giving a pillion rider a
    little bit of dirt experience. Any thoughts on gentle
    dirt roads etc. ? Any long easy trails at Metcalfe or
    Hollister ? Any county roads like Skyline come to mind ?

    Dirt, or just "dirty"? If dirty, Tunitas Creek maybe,
    depending on your requirements. Haven't traversed it in
    several years, but it was a beautiful ride. Slow, quiet,
    rather rough but still serene.

  3. Tunitas/Lobitos is one of my favorites, but I was looking
    more for genuwine dirt roads, which are a little hard to
    find on the peninsula.

    Indeed, I don't think there are any, at least not
    public. Reif/Rayhouse road from Knoxville-Beryessa
    to highway 16 is said to be unoficially open, but
    would be a very long "get-to" ride from the Peninsula.

    Haven't looked at it since 2005, the Rayhouse side
    was quite rough then but very beautiful, if stark.

    Hope somebody comes up with better ideas,

  5. Hollister had several. They may still have. I live in Calaveras County now and as long as you have a current plate and a USFS approved Sparky Arrester Thingy you can cruise several hundred miles of Forest Service Roads up here.
