Not all on dirt. You'll need a plate.

Much of what was the SMTS has been shut down.

Your best bet is to pick up a set of the CTUC Trail maps of the Los Padres NF and plan a route. Even on these good maps some of the stuff has been temporarily or permanently shut down.

From Gorman you can get to HWY33 on mostly dirt, but West of 33 you are screwed: There are three different Wilderness areas that cut off any E->W transit.
