Slightly off topic, but relevant - there is what appears to be a great big loop possible incorporating Reiff Road. When you get to the Berryessa-Knoxville end of Reiff, turn south and head for the lake, and there is a dirt road appropriately named East Side Road that runs along the east side of the lake. There is a big BLM sign at the beginning of this road stating no OHV use ahead, local traffic only, etc. It appears that this road might climb up to a fire lookout and then back down to Capay Valley, linking up with Highway 16 in the form of County Road 78A.

Every time I go out to Reiff I've had a buddy in tow who has to get home to the wife ASAP, so I haven't had a chance to try this one. Next time I'm going to tell him to find his own way back! Anyone else make it through that way?
