Map of California State Vehicular Recreation Areas
California has designated off-road riding and driving areas scattered about the northern, central, and southern parts of the state. These state vehicular recreation areas aren’t far from all the population centers in California. This helps spread out the masses that flock to these popular parks.
Each SVRA is different. Some are mostly dunes and are best for ATVs/UTVs and other rigs with tires suited for sand. Other areas are more mountainous and have steep, rugged 4×4 roads and single-track trails that climb up to summits, ridges, and overlooks. Dirt biking and even adventure motorcycling is fun in these vast state parks.
Above is a map and below is a list of these public lands that are open to all types of off highway vehicles. Click on any of the links to see topographic maps of the SVRA.
