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?
attempted this in 09, came upon a locked gate about 5 - 6 miles in on east side road.
