Must do rides in CA

What are some must see place/trails in CA that I can do in 2015? I have a crf250l with a trailer so I can drive long distance if I don't want to ride the bike that far. Let me know what you know so I can start planning my 2015 ride calendar.

All of CA?

Happy to make suggestions, but some mission statement would be helpful. You like deep sand? Trees? Single track? Skill level?

I think it would be fun to ride from Groveland to Lake Tahoe all on dirt, west of of crest of the Sierra. Not sure if the Hwy 120 to Hwy 108 section is open yet, since that was the Rim Fire area.

Everything is welcome. From easy fire roads to tight single track. Sand is fine and hills are good also.

Too many options to list. I've used Tony Huegel's - 'byways' here on adv - Backcountry Byways books as a starting place for some of the offroad adventuring I've done. These are mostly two track, jeep roads in various regions of the state. Generally you'll find more places to explore as you get out there with Tony's suggestions as a good jumping off place.... so much to see and do....

This may make me Barf.

Being serious, look at a lot of Mendo Forest. I'm close to Paskenta and there is a lot of beautiful areas, Lookouts, ridgetops, etc. Plumas Nat. Forest is also a treat. Head out of the Bay Area to the North, camp out for a weekend and have fun.

I'll agree. The weather is okay for the most part right now I think.
