    I've been looking around for some dirtroads close to the south bay, but haven't found any that seem legal. Metcalf is not quite what I'm looking for, the other closest I know is Old Coast Road between Monterey and Big Sur.

    Any ideas?

    MMMMMM......Close?


    There is Parkfield grade..goes from hyw198 over to Parkfield..Good place to have lunch..

    There is Gloria rd. it starts just south of Gonzales and goes east to hyw 25

    You could go down 25 to Panache rd. head west to New Idria rd..This is paved untill you get to the old mining town of Idria..it turns into dirt and takes you up and over through the off road park called Clear creek..(this is not a easy road rd on a GS) this will drop you off onto Coalinga rd..go north to hyw25 ..home..

    Might not be a bad ideal before the rains come to do a three road day trip..it would be a long day but it can be done..
