I'd be interested in that as well.Ah you mean off pavement. Thats central CA - eastern Sierra. almost 700 miles from my normal stomping grounds. I have a great off pavement book for that area written by a guy that has done some really cool stuff and does a great job writing up just about every place in CA you can leave black top. I'll see if I can find it.
No doubt if he's Bay Area there are plenty of much closer places to go but thats the area he was asking about.Thanks for the info.
Those are a little to far out. I have roads that are WAY closer to the bay and Sacramento.
If anyone else wants to scout roads let me know.
Yes there are people out there that list these. Tony Huegel Byways is a PAID for book. This is free and trying to make the most comprehensive online database with LOOPS not just listing a road.I'm in the Bay Area lots of stuff just up the hill from you in gold country just off 80. Not recommended once snow fall starts but after a good thaw there are lots of great trips back into some glacier sierra lakes which are a pile of fun. Again Tony Huegel Byways lists nearly all of them with great detail. I have done a bunch of them with the old Legacy GT more of just dirt roads with occasional technical spots that really aren't that tough but they are off the beaten path and take you to some great spots. Early spring with run off AWD is a must due to the water crossing and muddy spots but once you get into Mid July -August time frame its dry and much of it is perfectly doable in 2wd.
Gotcha - my experience is that loops vs destinations don't really matter. The views - and interesting things to see is what matters.Yes there are people out there that list these.
