damn flat ground

well for shoup park, i dont know i just stayed at the lip of the creek, since the other directions are covered by trees and the other way is blocked by a fence..


For the Fremont Trail open: thats about it.. there are some other rocks, but they arent compiled as much as the pics i got.

NAME: Little Yosemite

WHERE: Sonol Regional Wilderness, Milpitas, Ca. near Calaveras Res.

HOW TO FIND: Don't drive up Calaveras rd at Milpitas(takes longer unless you want a good view of Calaveras res.) From 680, exit Calaveras Rd and head south into the Sonol Valley. Make a left on Geary Rd and you will head on down to a pay booth (yeah this one will cost you 5 bucks) ask for a map, very helpful! then keep right on the main road till you reach the parking lot at the end. Theres no un-authorized vehicle access after that parking lot on Geary Rd so you are going to hike for about a mile more. Just take the small side trail on the right about half way down. it runs along the creek where you will eventually see more and more rock. I only went as far as the brush lets you go, correct me if theres more, theres a few lines on the other side of the creek as well.

CLASS: Mild comp, tons of scale trail

HISTORY: Suggest to stay in your car at that parking lot until the rangers leave or stick your rig in a back pack. The sign at the trail-head says no model rockets or airplanes, but nothing about rc cars.

aHHHHH XR-10 :shock:

looks awesome!"thumbsup"

nice find, howd you even find it? just randomly? lol

crawlitreal 10-20-2010 01:13 PM

Quick tip: trim down your quotes(backspace) or try not to quote and just do a regular post, this thread has long posts and takes forever to load. Each page I think has 20 posts no matter how big or small.

If you search around, you'll find the nor cal google maps link, they are all well known locations. I'm just making it simpler to find and see what's there.

Its listed here along with many others....

hi all, it's been a while. I recently moved so I havent had much time to do much scouting lately. I finally have a back yard so I will soon make a little addition to this thread;-) just need some rocks. i'm accepting rock donations or if anyone knows where to find some good sized rocks, just let me know with a pm. I might try experimenting with some stucko too.
If anyone knows of a non-coast spot in the south bay that is not listed in this thread, fill free to add it here. Also, if any conditions change in theses locations, let us know. I'll also work on updating them as well. Having a thread like this really helps out the noobs.

MRCCRAWLER1.9 03-02-2011 12:47 AM

Glad to hear from you again dan, hopefully you didn't move too far away from the south bay. You might be able to find some rocks near creeks. I got a few rocks from the beach.

Greystone, someone cut down alot of brush according to brownie, so there is a whole new section open in the back. Maybe like an extra 2min hike from the first boulder you see there.

Linda, always muddy like the norm.

Sheldons upgraded their course twice. The volcano island and a new one on the drift track.

That's all I know off the top of my head.

crawlerpillar 03-05-2011 11:55 PM

Hey crawlitreal here is a few more spots to check out. I know its not in the format you want. But, oh well. Enjoy!"thumbsup" Arrows at Bayview is nice for me cause I can stop by on my commute home. Right off Hwy 17, then a 2 minute walk.

Link not iPhone friendly, i was able to see the area, but no pin point. Weird tho, all apple devices like to go strait to the google map app first before anything else rather then the regular online google maps. The regular google maps page i think is still too much for apple to handle. The mobile page version seems to work, but hard to use. Then the google map app on apple doesn't save places for public to see. Is arrows and bayview the nearest intersection?

Yeah that rock has a cool little challenge on it, if I remember, I think I was able to make it almost to the top with my summit.

No it is just the name I gave the place. Cause there was arrows painted on the trail and when you get to the crawl spot you can see the Monterey bay. Exit Glenwood Dr. (1/2 mile from the summit) go up the hill and park in the dead end. The crawl spot is a man made spill way thing with rocks and cement formed together. The bottom of the spillway is only about 30' off highway 17. Not to worry, you are well protected from traffic there. "thumbsup"
