Santa Cruz

I Always here of people going out into the Santa Cruz mountains to go wheeling but I cant find them. Anyone out there from that Area who wouldn't mind showing the new guy around so I don't have to drive over the hill.

I grew up in the area, and all I can remember is wheeling up along Ice Cream Grade and some spots in Bonny Doon. Have no idea what it looks like now (20yrs ago).

Grew up in Aptos. There aren't any legal places to wheel. I know Bonny Dune but I don't think its legal. Closest to you is Hollister Hills.

Go up Bay St. Make a left turn onto High\Empire Grade. Go about a mile and make the right turn into the last UC entrance. Anywhere past the gate is fair game for wheeling. They got some cool ravines and stair climbs up by collage 8. Plus you get 2 free passes to the BoardWalk for every 10 SLUG's you run over.

Again not a legal place to wheel.....I think we all got caught there at one point or another in high school. There is nothing legal in the county to wheel that is not private property.

There is lots of places to wheel, but like everyone said its not smart/legal. Good way to get tickets, i got stuck in the pit at whiteladys when i was in high school, ended up swallowing a bunch water into the carb and couldnt get the truck the start. 3 hours, 2 friends, 1 sheriff and a $375 "off roading" ticket later and a was out. Not fun.

if i do play around here anymore its at a few "secret" spots in boulder creek that arn't patrolled by johnny law, or on friends properties around here but those "adventures" are few and far between.

go to hollister

whiteladys is way to tempting when you see it but not worth it. i know a lot of people who have gotten ticketed. What are you wheling? send me a pm and maybe i can point you to a few spots that are questionable but you should be safe wheeling at
