Opinions wated: would you ride this 'road'??

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=39.45...num=1&t=h&z=17

The title says it all. I live 5 minutes away from the spot marked in the Google Maps link. Its hard to see in the map, because it is blocked by trees, but there is a paved public road, that turns into dirt, and then goes along the power lines. Ignore the "A" on the map, its google's mistake. The dirt road I indicated with the green arrow actually stems from a paved road that splits off of Marker Road, just to the southeast.

I have ridden to the end of the pavement and there are no gates or signs. do you think this dirt 'road' that goes along the power lines is fair game for riding?

If you follow it on goolge maps, you can see the the 'road' or 'trail' follows the power lines for a long way and eventually intersects Park Hall Road here (again, ignore the "A", look at the green arrow):

There are no signs or gates at this end either.

I really want to explore it, but I cant decide if I should... thoughts?

PS: I just got a 1976 honda xl350 and am dying to explore all of the local dirt roads / trails that I used to drive past without a thought.
