Did this with a buddy over the weekend and was a blast! Thanks to all the contributors to this thread as it made navigation and what to expect easy.

The ride up was great once we were off the main roads and into the twisties heading towards Berryessa. Be careful of the presumed locals who absolutely FLY on those roads. My buddy and I aren’t slow but we were passed like we were standing still by a group of fogies (all due respect) on 1200GS’.

Once off on to Rieff we were in heaven as the scenery was amazing with all the recent rain. I’d say a few sections were a little more than “fire road” territory with ruts, some muddy ruts and incline/declines but totally manageable for a couple of dirt noobs like us.

If anyone is thinking about doing this ride from SF, I highly recommend it as a day trip. Leaving from SF at 8:30AM, we’re back in the city by 6PM with a couple of fuel and restaurant stops and only one trail side repair to bend a shifter.
