The trails along the west side of Boca Reservoir are a great place to take a beginner. With nothing too challenging and a host of boating, fishing and swimming opportunities, it's a pretty good place to bring all the family toys. There is some single track in the connecting areas, but mostly just wide trails and dirt roads surround the campgrounds and day-use areas which line the lakeshore.

This area connects directly to Prosser Pits to the west, Billy Hill OHV Route and Stampede Reservoir to the north, and even Verdi Peak and Bull Ranch Creek (Dog Valley/Long Valley) to the northeast if you are looking for more challenging trails. The area caters more towards the boating crowd than to OHVs but if you are heading out to the lake anyway, why not bring the bikes too?

The trails here could be described as dry and a bit rocky, but the scenery is really top notch. Nestled right under a large dam, this area offers a dozen creek crossings and some clean and new facilities.

There is an alternate staging area to the south (see directions) which works just fine for day use. You can reach the campground this way also, but there are three or four creek crossings, some nasty washouts, and some short sections of volleyball sized rocks. Pickups should have no problem and short travel trailers could probably make it, but it might take you all day. For big RVs or toy haulers the northern access route (dam crossing) is highly recommended.

This 220 acre riding area was created in the depression left from where clay was excavated to build the Lake Oroville Dam. And depression, is what you are going to feel if you drive more than 30 miles to get there.

This is not a vacation destination. It's a small, flat practice area where an average 2WD car could tackle 90% of the terrain. The are a few trees and a couple of small pop-up jumps, and when we say a couple, we mean... one.

Ok, we're sorry. It's a great place for the local kids, for giving ATV lessons, or for breaking in a new top end, and as riders we are grateful for any public land we have. The area is lightly patrolled, with one hazard that is clearly marked, and no services.

During weekends this place can be packed with visitors (dry lake racing) but it gets very little use during the week. Beginning October 1, 2008 El Mirage Cooperative Management Area became a fee-based area.

Daily passes start at $15.00, but weekly and annual passes are also available and offer significant savings. On site kiosk machines accept credit cards and cash (exact change only).

The trails have lots of tree roots and whoops, switchback climbs, water crossings, and rock beds. It can be pretty dusty in the summer, but when the conditions are right, these trails are epic!

The main staging area is simple, but shady and pleasant, with a few campsites, restrooms, and a map kiosk. Last time we checked there was still no fee for camping or riding. If you are looking for a weekend trip with a more aggressive group, this is a very good choice. (You can find some easier scenic trails just down the road at Gold Note.)

This OHV area offers plenty of shade, multiple staging areas, narrow winding trails, and a nearby lake. The 75 miles of marked and rated trails are a bit rocky at the start, but get smoother as you go.

The trails have multiple creek crossings and the reddish color of the dirt goes great with the deep forest pines. Be sure to heed the trails stop signs when crossing paved roads because the corners are blind and the weekend traffic can be fairly steady.

There are some free primitive campsites along the stream, and some pay campsites at the campground near the lake, which fills up quickly on holidays. Make reservations if you want to be on the lake. During very dry periods a deep layer of silt tends to build up on the trails making them extremely dusty. China Wall OHV Area is also just up the road.

(A Forest Service approved spark arrestor is required here.)

This is an out-of-the-way OHV area that is not well known to the general public. It has marked trails spanning 22,000 acres, with newer facilities and plenty of privacy.

Most of the trails are sandy but fairly easy, with perhaps fewer bumps than your typical desert trails, but still enough sand whoops to make you a little bit weary. There are a number of steep climbs also, including one steep sandy chute called the 'Widowmaker'.

The access road is a wide and smooth dirt road but larger RVs might find the parking area to be a little cramped but managable. The main staging area has picnic tables, fire rings and a clean restroom but no developed campsites. This is a great choice to get away for a weekend, without travelling too far and without dealing with large crowds. Chances are good you'll have the whole place to yourself.

Open to all OHV's, this park has a variety of terrain that includes some rocky hill climbs, washouts, rocky creek beds and rutted 4x4 jeep trails.

In general the trails are pretty dry and crusty most times, and the surrounding vegetation is sparse with just the occasional shrub or patch of grass. Due to some water problems they have had in the past we suggest you bring your own water or a microfilter in case the water is unsafe.

Nearby Deer Creek Campground does offer direct trail access and has full RV hookups along with shower facilities.

This scenic four mile single-track trail is for motorcycles only, but the main forest road can be used to form nice loop. You can travel in either direction, but starting the trail at the lower trailhead (the creek crossing) is considerably easier due to the long series super sharp switchbacks which are much easier going up than coming down. Watch for an old fire lookout at the top and a large open meadow with views of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding mountains.

The daytime temperatures can be very hot, and there is no water and the ramadas provide very little shade so we recommend you bring extra shelter.

A mini motocross track can be found next to the Smith Forks campground and a 10 acre 4WD practice area next to Aliklik campground offers eight man-made obstacles. The Quail Canyon MX Track to the southeast is open for practice daily and can be accesses by taking the the Pronghorn Trail.

This area is actually more of a 4x4 trail, but it will test your rock climbing skills if you decide to tackle it on your motorcycle. There are plenty of private, primitive campsites right on the river if you bear left at each opportunity. The camping and scenery is also beautiful in the upper elevations (bear right at all opportunities), but the higher you go, the rockier it gets, so expect to be challenged.

The main staging area is open for day use only but dispersed camping is permitted throughout the forest. Indian Springs Campground is about .5 miles away from the staging area but non-steet legal machines must be hauled to and from the campground as there is no direct trail access.

This canyon is littered with steep and challenging hill climbs. These climbs are steep and loose enough that you really need a big 4-stroke or a 500cc 2-stroke to make it to the top consistently. The valleys are deep with sand and you can do long loops (IMS tank recommended), but the most interesting routes do require a few good hill climbs.

Sometimes during the evening, violent canyon winds may kick up and do a pretty good job of shaking up RV's and trailers. The visitor center at the entrance has maps and guide books for all of the surrounding area. A quarter mile to the south is a small gas pump, with ATV rentals, repairs and a restaurant.

There are two entrances to this area, the lower camp and the upper camp. The upper camp is dry and rocky, has a very rough access road with no signs or directions (bear right at the fork!) and offers only two campsites, both primitive. The upper camp is not recommended for RV or trailers.

While the upper camp does have more trails, the lower camp offers much easier access and more room for RVs and trailers. This camp has developed campsites with tables, fire rings and direct access to the creek. Look for an opening in at the back of the campground to find a motorcycle trail that follows the creek and leads to two great swimming holes (first hole is 1/4 mile in, waterfall is 1/4 mile past that).

You can ride from the lower camp to the upper camp by following the lower camp access road right through the campground, across the curved bridge and up over the ridge (make no turns). Follow the road about 7 miles to the upper camp area.

Many locals playfully call this place 'Rocksville' because of the many rocks, but we've seen bigger chunk. As long as you use a skid & guards you'll have no problems.

Larger RVs and long travel trailers will have difficulty with the latter part of the access road and the campground turnarounds are fairly compact. Collecting firewood is permitted, but bring your own because you won't find any.

Most of the rocky sections have a less direct or alternate line to take however novices and young kids might still be advised to not attempt this trail. For instance, the last section of the trail before you reach Hermit Valley Campground is a very steep and rocky descent with loose dirt, rocks and roots. Once you go down it, the only way out is to go back up (or take the road if you are street legal).

Located in “Bigfoot Country”, a small network of old jeep trails and forest service roads can be found in this area. Many of the trails we encountered were overgrown with thick forest vegetation so it was impossible to go very far.

The main access road had steep drop-offs to the sides, some fairly rocky sections and a number of low overhanging tree branches. There are no turnaround opportunities for passenger vehicles early on, so once you go in you have to go all the way in, and watch out! The famous Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot footage was shot about 20 miles from here.

This system of marked trails mixed with forest roads has a wide variety of challenges for any rider.

Despite obvious maintenance attempts, rain damage and some huge ruts and tree roots can make even some of the novice trails challenging. This may not be the place to bring a true beginner.

Lone Sequoia is the better of the two staging areas by far, with more trees, more privacy for each campsite, and less vandalism. The Kamook staging area is closer to the main road making it more accessible for RVs. This overall area is very scenic, with Yosemite National Forest just a few miles away.

*Note: If coming from Nevada via Hwy 120 you will have to pay a $20 toll to pass through Yosemite National Park and the pass is often closed due to weather conditions. This is a sensitive area, with Yosemite so close by. Be sure to use an FS approved end cap.

This huge motocross park has seven groomed tracks to choose from, including two R/C tracks. The park is very popular so rider traffic can be heavy. All riders must wear colored wristbands which designate skill level and determine when access is given to each of the tracks throughout the day. Parking is rather cramped but camping is an option if you want to get a full weekend of riding.

Here you can grab a spot on the beach and ride the tide pools and the surrounding dunes. This area caters to those who like sand in their ears and it gets so busy that it is quite entertaining.

Get there early for a good spot on holiday weekends, and remember to lower your tire pressure after you pass the gate. A 2WD vehicle can handle the firm wet part of the beach with the tire pressure low enough, but 4x4s are strongly recommended.

There is also plenty to do and see in the surrounding tourist town, such as clamming, horseback riding, surfing and seafood restarurants. The dunes are semi-firm, and we tackled them on 2-strokes with fresh tires but no paddles. (Ok, so maybe one of our two strokes dumped its coolant and seized up, but that was only because we were too lazy to re-jet!... Maybe you better bring the paddles.) Flags are required.

With approximately 80,000 aces and large stretches of BLM land to the south and east, there is plenty to see and vast desert trails that you can ride.

There are no fees, and there are virtually unlimited primitive camping opportunities, however, this is a party place, especially on holiday weekends. This area gets rowdy, especially at night, so be sure to mark and light up your camp well and square it off with vehicles so people don't ride through it. There is a repair shop and a rental shop accross the street from the main entrance, and a ranger station is on site.

Well, it's the perfect place to learn how to ride the sand without the dangers and annoyance of rider traffic or crowds. There is only one main dune, and it's very small, but there is one section of rolling sand with some vegetation that is fun. The surrounding mountains have some desert trails and fire roads but the OHV area is mostly flat. The main entrance is smooth but has a couple deep sand washes so a 4x4 is recommended if you want to drive all the way in to the dune.

Open to motorcycles only, this trail winds through thick vegetation and offers panoramic mountain and canyon views. There are two access points but the northern entrance (Cherry Creek Road) is gated and is seasonally open between August 1 through December 15. Cherry Creek Road is rough and should only be attempted with a high clearance vehicle (RVs not recommended). The southern trailhead has a very small parking area (enough for one compact vehicle) and is easy to miss but does not have a designated closure. Novice riders should avoid this trail due to loose chunk rock, narrow switchbacks and steep hillclimbs.

Camping is available at Wheeler Gorge Campground and Holiday Group Campground and while both campgrounds do not offer direct trail access they are recommend for those with street legal motorcycles since the southern trailhead is located about one mile north. Be sure to check with the Ojai Ranger District at (805) 646-4348 before heading out as this trail may close temporarily due to inclement weather. This trail is actively maintained by the Ojai Valley Dirt Riders.

This trail system has three main staging areas and caters to the more experienced rider who is looking for steeper and more challenging terrain. The Penny Pines & Deer Valley staging areas offer the best camping for access to 135 miles of challenging (many black diamond) trails.

Middlecreek staging area, to the south, has paved access, camping and a day use area with a pee-wee play area, dry river bed play area, and access to a handful of easier trails. Lake Pillsbury (to the north) offers great camping, lake access, and access to 33 miles of jeep trails, but is closed to OHVs from 5/18 - 9/8 annually.

Most trails in the area are marked and rated for difficulty. Drawbacks would be that the campsites fill up quickly on weekends, and there is not really any shade in the day use areas.

Amenities include shaded parking with picnic tables with BBQ pits plus a small parts store located at the edge of the main parking area. This is a gated, pay to ride, heavily regulated park, which caters more to track riders, and offers just a handful of trails. It's proximity to Sacramento makes a decent choice for short day trips with the kids.

There are various resting points where you can get a great panoramic view of the nearby reservior and mountains. There are other 4x4 roads and family-friendly routes that traverse the large surrounding area, but the only actual designated motorcycle trail is the 8 mile loop, accessible from the main staging area.

Nearby areas on the east side of the highway have additional trails and an MX track but finding an 'OHV legal' connecting route will prove difficult. You may have to drive.

Also keep in mind that during certain parts of the year the water crossing may just be too deep for bikes to cross at all, cutting your total riding space in half. The price is a little steep ($8/primary vehicle and $5/each additional OHV) considering how small the place is and what it has to offer, but if you are looking for a family play ride, this place is fun for a half-day.

The access road is narrow and winding, and is not recommended for RVs or long trailers. All trails are looped, and there is a nice swimming hole downstream from where trail 6 meets 24. Maps are available at each of the staging areas, which have loading docks and restrooms.

This area is most crowded in the fall, and the ruts and mud holes get very deep in some places. The surrounding area has 25,000 acres for hiking and mountain biking.

There are no services, no shade, no water, and really not that much in the way of interesting terrain. You can, however, ride more or less where you want, and ride to the town of Johannesburg (south approx 5 miles) and get food and gas, and even ride right up to the local bar. You will find a few wild horse & burrow corrals to the north and the Trona Pinnacles to the northeast.

There will be no crowds, so you can get on the gas and let it all hang out, but beware the clearly marked military base to the east. This is a large area so a GPS or radio is recommended.

This is a large open area with no fees and few restrictions. The gravel access road is well maintained, and the climate is hot, dry and dusty with no shade or water. Terrain consists mainly of sandy washes, scrub brush, rocky hill climbs, and dry flat valleys with a few joshua trees. The area is used periodically for races and scrambles that run between Barstow and Victorville off I-15. Moderate to easy terrain makes this a decent choice for the family that wants to avoid holiday crowds.

You might call this the northern offroad showcase of the Mendocino National Forest.

With swimming holes, water crossings, and paved access to multiple campgrounds and staging areas, this area is huge and will not disappoint. (A Chatter Box or something like a Rino GPS is recommended.)

The area offers some single track, and many mountain trails of moderate difficulty. All trails are marked and rated. Most of the steeper trails are plenty wide if you need to bail out. Shade is minimal on the trail, but better in the campground.

Nearby East Park Reservoir is closed to OHV riding, but offers lakeshore camping, boating and water skiing. Elevation ranges from about 1700 to almost 6000 feet.

Visitors can park, ride and camp anywhere, and there are no services. Holiday weekends are crowded and rowdy, with lots of bonfires, speeding and massive parties. Terrain consists of dry lakes, bad lands, rocky mountains and rolling dunes. Cross-country travel is permitted but beware the bombing ranges to the north and south.

This is a very small but scenic OHV Area in the outskirts of Lake Tahoe. There are just a handful of trails, and a sand pit with a decent motocross track. The short trails lead to two peaks with some large rocks and panoramic views. Overall, a great afternoon ride to unwind, but this is not a large enough area warrant any special travel plans.

Since this location consists of two separate areas, there are two designated closure dates. The sand pit/motocross track is scheduled to close for the season by November 15 while the trails usually remain open until November 20. The dates are subject to change and may close early due to inclement weather. For current conditions contact the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit at (530) 543-2600.

This place offers a family friendly ride on easy forest service roads that run directly from the campgrounds, and wind up to Verdi Peak for some nice views of Boca Reservoir. There are a handful of side trails, but the single track trails are hard to find. The roads are so mild, it's a quick shot to the peak, and you can make your way toward Bull Ranch Creek (Dog Valley) for some more interesting trails.

Camping is available at the trailhead (see driving directions). Note that the campgrounds in the general area around Boca, Stampede, and Prosser Reservoirs are closed for the winter, often until mid or late May, and sections of the trail leading to Verdi Peak can be snow-covered well into May.

After a long period of closure the BLM has reopened portions of the Clear Creek Management Area to the general public for non-motorized activities. Highway legal vehicles are permitted on much of the 32 miles of major roads within the Serpentine ACEC Area and can be used for access but many important new restrictions make it clear the area is no longer intended for recreational motorized use.

Only highway licensed vehicles are permitted in the Clear Creek Management Area and all vehicles must remain on designated roads. Vehicles used for touring must obtain a permit prior to visiting and vehicle touring is limited to just five days per year.

Additional restrictions may also be in effect so for more information always contact the Hollister Field Office at (831) 630-5000 before visiting. BLM Trail Map

This track appears to be permanently closed. After numerous unsuccessful attempts to contact the owner we decided to swing by in 2007 and see for ourselves. This is what we saw. Because it is private property, we were unable to get very close, but the MX track had obviously been leveled and the area was partially overgrown. We are assuming there are no plans to re-open, but if you know better, please submit a ticket in the Support Center and we'll update this entry pronto.

This area sits on the outskirts of a large gravel pit that has a small creek trickling through the center. The scenery here is decent and the trails are rumored to be good, and the boundaries between public and private property are a bit fuzzy. In fact, there are private property signs at the main staging area and we presume that staging here is NOT legal, (but it is definitely popular). You can head upstream to the northeast into the Tahoe National Forest.
