Friday Ridge Road?

This road intersects with Titlow Hill Road and goes over to Saylor on Hwy 299.
Is it paved? What's its condition?

Much obliged.

Yes, it's paved. Good shape.

Friday Ridge intersects hwy 299 a couple miles east of Salyer... at the bridge over the Trinity River. (Humboldt county line)
Ammon Ridge road also connects Forest Highway 1 to Friday Ridge road, (the connection is about 2 miles from 299).
Ammon ridge is paved and in good shape too. So you could take Ammon Ridge or Friday Ridge to 299.

If you're interested in more dirt... take Pelletrau Ridge down to into Hyampom valley, then turn north on the first paved road to Sims mtn. After 30 miles it connects to Ammon Ridge road.

Hyampom market has gas and there are pretty good burgers in the pub, Hyampom itself is on the other side of the river. Turn right on the paved road, cross the river on the curved bridge, and then take the first left to Hyampom. From Hyampom you can take FH40 and 60 all the way to 299 (paved). Connects at Big Bar, or Burnt Ranch.

I was up there last Thursday. The Forest Service had a guy (just one guy) getting debris out of the road. Paved and passable, just a bit messy right now.

Thanks for the replies TZ & Melville. I love the area up there and plan to ride through it later this year. Good riding!
