Always nice to meet new locals JB. Send me a PM if you ever want to set up a ride I have been heading across the valley lately, but still like the lower elevation trails between Chico and Oroville.

Thanks for the "rest of the story"
How early in Spring would this be doable?

Ok, since it's being wrapped up....

First I'll address Bob's question, how soon this is accessible pretty much depends on how much snow we get this year. I'm sure I'll be checking on it periodically from about March on. Possibly as early as April .
Couple of pics from down at Deer Creek.




I love all of the new growth already coming in. Nice and cold and WET.


There was ice between the steel tracks on this bridge over Deer Creek, Good thing we didn't hit that. Could have been ugly .


Jeramie getting ready to cross the creek.


Lichen growing in a tree. This was while waiting for Jeramie.


Here he comes.


Zoom Zoom!


Jeramie heading down the road towards Hwy 99 after a little oops. . Rock just jumped out and got him. After all that we'ld ridden through it was suprising that this happened but I know I was getting tired, he may have been also. Strange things happen when you're tired. Great ride Jeramie. Ride on....

some 20 years ago, I worked a wildland fire in the area around the top of your loop. off Plum Creek and Ponderosa rds. the fire went as far north as hwy 36 and took out most of Ponderosa Sky Ranch, but we only worked the southern part of the fire. I have wanted to head up that way for some time. guess I need to get a better dirt bike than my Multistrada

...and thought I would address this question again, You can ride this route now. I was up that way yesterday with my brother and only saw a few small patches of snow at the higher, 5500ft + elevation. I didn't ride the entire route but it should be clear.

Makes me homesick!

I grew up camping, hunting and fishing in that area. Caught many a fish out of Mill, Antelope and Deer creek's.

My Grandfather, Father and Uncles ran a sawmill near Brownsville and knew that area like the back of their hands.

The story of Ishi was of course taught to us in elementary school.

I miss seeing Mt Lassen and Shasta in the distance. But hey I live in Colorado now I have Pike's Peak in my backyard......
