Offroad-Based Motorcycle Routes

Hey all,

I am planning a trip down the the Rawhyde Adventures ranch in Castaic, CA in April. I will be departing from Spokane, WA. I am wondering the best way to plan a route that sticks mostly to dirt, gravel, and FS roads. I have looked at the Butler motorcycle maps, but they don't specify. Thanks!

-Landon

Touratech did some route from Washington south a couple years ago. I'm not sure if they had the route on a map but it might be a start.

I have looked into that as well. The BDRs seem to be geared more towards jeep trails. I am looking for a way to plan a route based on secondary roads mostly.

Benchmark Maps for WA, OR and CA. They are the best for planning forest road trips. You might want Idaho and Nevada too.

For sure Idaho and Nevada. I'm going to start off by taking Route 12 into the bitterroot in Montana.
