i live in victoria, bc, canada and i was wondering if there is some near by beginners trails or decently secluded unpaved roads. most of the logging roads that i know of are pretty much locked and more recently paroled (alifent lake).
any help would be grate, the closer the better...as i work seven days a week

Your best bet is to get a backroads mapbook (earlier editions are better) and start exploring with some friends. A GPS that can map where you have been is also really handy. I never really wheeled a stock sube so I don't know where the easy trails are. The Powerline trail out in Sooke could be a possibility.
The issue here is that places where unlifted vehicles can go get closed off first because thats where people beat on their stolen cars and set them on fire. Places that require bigger rigs stay open.

Now that I'm older and most of my friends are getting up there in the forestry ranks I've found myself in possesion of a few keys to these gates but I still have to "sneak in"
If you're into going far the back road between Port Alberni and Cumberland still has awesome access to some wicked steep alpine trails and deactivated road beds along it's route.
The backroad handbook is a godsend, so are buddies that can help tow you out.
