I think we could do a main route with optional hero sections.
Did someone mention sugar sand?

That sounds like a very fun way to spend a weekend... I think I need to spend some time with the maps and see what I can come up with for dirt between Burlingame and Hopkinton...

I've got nothing.

My best hope was Woody Hill, but a large part of that is now golf course and the roads I did find are all marked with "No Tresspassing/No Unauthorized Vehicles" signs.

Ponaganset road is probably the best of the several dirt roads in that area.

Yes, I tried Woody Hill and its all gated. All I have is Tomaquag Valley Rd and I'm not sure how much of the road along East Beach. I have been meaning for a while to explore farther east for a better start point. The Indians don't allow any access either. My route heads north from Hopkinton on North Rd but there are other options.

There are a lot of good twisty back roads in that area, and the paving is so bad on many of them it will be *like* riding in the dirt...
