Ain't subscribed, but I dun towed a couplea n00b girls through the dirt yesterday. (Knoxville & Old Toll)
This wuz the proposed route, butt after their many urine/gas/food stops we didn't do Fish Rock. (Butt I've dun it on mah FJR w/ bald tires so it's a piece a cake.) Lotza goat trails 'n sum dirt roads.

The key ta dirt ride'in is ta be able to relax while the bike's move'in 'round beneath you. Simple!

Yes,I camped at Hendy Woods recently,its nice with BIG Redwood trees right in campsites.
There's a Mexican place just down the road towards Boonville,maybe 2 miles from Hendy. Food was good,very friendly family run place.

Also Bob at www.ironmandualsport.com has some rides coming up,he caters to all levels of riders and puts on great rides.

Anyone know of some small dirt roads in Fremont? I'm looking to simply practice riding slow and handling in dirt. So I really don't need anything long or fancy.

There is one I know of. I don't think it's private.

This should be it. PM me if you can't find it.

Yeah that's for sure. I wondered of that way once since the gate was open and some guy kindly told me it was trespassing but the hate is supposed to be locked anyway so access to that road shouldn't be an option anyway.

Why not just run down 880 to 101 and in south San Jose is the Santa Clara County OHV park.

ps - bad news a little further south:

Panoche Inn is up for sale... we might loose a great spot to stop for a cold one in an amazing place.
