California Backcountry Discovery Route (#CABDR-South)


Recommended Posts



The California Backcountry Discovery Route (#CABDR-South) is the ninth route developed by the BDR non-profit for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle travel. This spectacular, yet challenging, 820-mile off-pavement ride starts in Yuma, AZ and ends in Benton, CA. The route primarily uses rugged two-track and desolate dirt roads leading travelers through California's majestic canyons, rocky riverbeds, and sandy washes. Experience quirky desert enclaves and ghost towns, visit historic mines, see ancient petroglyphs and intaglios, dip in healing mineral hot springs and ride among the unique Joshua trees in the Mojave National preserve.


Free GPS tracks, Butler Motorcycle Map, feature length documentary film and trip resources for CABDR-South are available to the public.



The long awaited Southern-California BDR (CABDR-South) is the ninth route developed by the BDR organization for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle travel.
