Saw this thread and thought I'd post.

Just rode the 3 to the 36, down Van Duzen Rd, crossing over Zunia Bluff Road, Alderpoint Rd out to Garberville at the end of July. FYI Van Duzen
is under major reconstruction and is mostly gravel, and some parts looked like they had never been paved. A lot of the surface is potholed but great riding in amazing terrain.

Wish I could make this rally, looks like it'll be sweeeeet!

Cry Sorry to see this happen...

Had a good time and a good group last year. Seems people have such a hard time making plans/committing to something and sticking to it now days . Maybe next year Brian, we'll get together and ride sometime this fall.

Brian,

Took my crew up there this last weekend. On Saturday, we took the easy way from Junction City up to Hayfork Bally Lookout. Stan told me to tell you "Hi."

We then took the 'hard' way back to Junction City. Man that trail got worse in the last year. Lots of deadfall in the burned section.

I had lunch at the rest area Saturday on 299/3. Stayed on the pavement back through wildwood road. pulled into the campground thou, so I can say I did the Jefferson thing anyway. Did 3 from Gazel.

What are the easy and hard ways from junction city to hayfork bally lookout? Might head that way for some steelhead action and do some riding as well.

Easy Way.

Cross the bridge over the Trinity River at Junction City
Turn upstream on the far side.
Go a couple miles.
Take Soldier Creek Road to the right.
Couple miles up, take the (stay on the main road) right fork.
Contacts the road to the Hayfork Bally Lookout. (turn right).

Harder way.

As above, go up Soldier Creek road.
Take the 'Hayfork Divide' Jeep road to the right. (old road)
It goes through Rattlesnake Gap and comes out where the Soldier Creek road contacts Hayfork Bally road.

Yup. 33N32 and 33N35Y to be exact. From the MVUM:
http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_...rdb5412722.pdf

We did this trail from Junction City to the lookout last year, and it didn't seem as difficult for us. This time/direction, the loaded KLR had issues making it up the steep stuff, even with knobbies. With such a dry year, it was certainly more 'fluffy' than before. Other bikes included my XR650R, a couple of KTM 950's (one with street tires), a 690 and a 625SXC. The loose terrain definitely demanded momentum and line choice to make the steep and long hill climbs (which were multiple). We cleared deadfall in the fire section, so just about any nutjob willing to try can make it through (except for a flat twin beemer).

Nice map !!
Actually, not so much. This is what law enforcement will use to determine whether you are operating your motor vehicle on legal/non-legal routes. Notice how there are no other detail except for road shapes and numbers? Notice how out in the woods there are not a lot of signs indicating road names/numbers? This map (and others like it) are worthless to the back-country explorer without some additional information such as creeks, streams, contours and some place names. I haven't tried to contact the FS to see if the data from these maps is available to be imported into something useful.

There is a whole new section to Advrider to discuss these issues:
