    Any good trails around Stockton?

    I'm new to MTB and have been riding mostly road in and around Stockton, but I want to get my bike dirty! My friend and I are looking to do some weekend riding and are looking for any local singletrack that is not too technical, but would provide a few hours of fun. Any and all local trail info would be greatly appreciated! Maybe even make some new riding buddies in the area!

    A little farther than Hogan, is New Melones Resevoir's Glory Hole. The trails are beginner to intermediate friendly.
    .

    I may not have the best of everything, but I have the best everything that matters.

    Sounds like a plan. I usually ride pavement during the week after work, but I'm open on weekend, but I tend to sleep in (until after 10am), so morning rides aren't good for me. I'll have to swap my tires to do trails, so a little advance notice is necessary.

    Thanks!

    I live in Stockton as well. I like to ride the trail at Dry Creek in Modesto, nice little newbie run. I have only been riding a little while but have made a few trips to bay area/marin, lots of fun and not that far. I would love to meet some new buddies to ride with. Somebody, hit me up!!!

    Whatever happens to these people? They post about wanting to meet riders in the Stockton area and want to know where the trails are. Then we never hear from them again!

    A co-worker is riding around at Round Valley, Byron-ish area off Marsh Creek Rd near Los Vaqueros Reservoir.

    been meaning to join him on some weekend but don't think my ancient bike can handle much off road

    Im in Modesto and ride with a couple buddies of mine just about every Saturday morning. We've hit New Melones a couple of times, there are some great trails up there, from beginner to intermediate/advanced (or so it says), Me and my friends hit the intermediate trails and they were great! Dry creak is pretty easy, lots of different small trails off the main trail.

    I know this is an old thread, just thought I'd throw my opinion of these local trails.

    Hello! I live in Modesto and I'm new to mt biking. Would like to ride and meet new friends who are into the sport and don't mind trolling along a newbe to show him the trails. Sorry for posting on an old thread but better late than not posting at all.

    Stockton is way cool there are not too many opportunities to get dirty but if you get creative you can have a lot of fun. White Slough Rec Area has lots of ridable trails. There are several bike trails ( they're paved but there is dirt along them, The Calaveras River Trail, Fourteen Mile Slough, Bear Creek Trail, and there is a whole 'other catagory of urban trails to configure on your own. Don't be confined to the recreation areas get out and ride!
