Sounds good I started a new thread Cow Mt. 8-11

|bobthetj03||Hmmm! Cow or Elk sounds doable. Maybe Cow AND Elk! I'll need to think about this. If we do just Cow, that's good for a few hrs, but if we went up Elk first, go down into Lake Pillsbury, come out in Potter Valley, head to Ukiah and then finish up in Cow that could make for a good day of offroading! There'd be a little pavement pounding in between to get from Pillsbury to Ukiah but that's ok.|

|gene13||Or we could do Knoxville too. We have trails there that we didn't get to. LOL|

Well, my ideas aren't as awesome as High Lakes would be, but we could do:
1. Indian Valley Res to Bartlett Springs. Mostly forest service roads, but I know of a few trails on the north side of the Res that are moderate. Also would be fairly close for the Sac crew (less than 2dr drive to get there).
2. Elk Mt/Bear Creek/Snow Mt area. Also mostly forest service roads with some campsite possiblilities (Deer Valley Camp, Bear Creek Camp).
3. Cow Mt. Ukiah side. More moderate trails. Many trails I haven't explored yet.
all these choices are in my neighborhood, but I can't think of anything else on short notice.
Let me know what you guys think.

|bobthetj03||I have a few ideas if anyone still wants to do something this weekend.|
|08-06-2012 09:00 PM|
|gene13||I'm down for just about any thing. Day off to wheel so I have to go wheeling.|

Given the events in the area i do agree. We will have to put this on hold until the fire is out and reschedule to a later date.
the reasons being 1) the fire is still at zero contianment and 2) the area is now closed to public access. Sucks because it is a really cool place and would make a fun trip but what can you do mother nature wins this time. I will use this to also make another trip to the area later and get down the trail i didnt have time for to check out pipejam lake.
If anyone in the greater sacramento area or anyone else, would still like to do something this weekend feel free to pm me and we can do a local thing.

Gold Lake Area
Here ya go. First you need to stop in at the National Forest Office to get a map of the Lakes Basin / Sierra Buttes area Recreation Guide. The office is right off Hwy49 in Nevada City on the right just past Hwy20/49 split. From Nevada City its about 11/2hr to the Gold Lake area. You drive past Downieville (gas), past Sierra City, and turn left at Bassets(gas) onto the highway to Graeagle(gas) then head to Gold Lake. There's camping there or other lakes near-by.
The map will point you to the 4wheel drive trails, and camping areas, lots of lakes for fishing also.
For wheeling head for Gold Valley, its a winding trail in the valley which leads to Snake Lake trail (lockers rear), or Little Deer Lake trail (lockers rear). You can run these trails in either direction. Or you can by-pass these two trails in the valley and continue on to Hawley Lake (private) just drive past and go onto other loop trails that are easy wheeling.
Since I was just up there this last weekend wheeling for 2 days I really want to wheel elsewhere for right now.
