Oh and that was a great video.
I was wondering the same thing along this route (I have an '06 KLR)...Here's what I would suggest. Haul ass up to Philbrook Resv from Sterling City, then cruise up Philbrook Rd(25N05?) to the PCT near Lotts Lake (mostly private land). This is the North entry to the High Lakes OHV area. There is a good camp site right there. From here you could poke your nose into the High Lakes OHV area and decide for yourself.


I think inside the High Lakes OHV area it's too rocky to be much fun on a KLR, I was sweating during some sections on the KTM 350.

The next day, from the N. end campsite, go back to Philbrook resv. and take Humbug Road to Almanor -excellent, scenic KLR country.

Then work your way down to Johnsville and take the Johnsville McRae rd. (28 miles dirt) to LaPorte (or LaPorte to Johnsville).


JOHNSVILLE McRAE RD.
