Henness pass marked?

I am up in Tahoe with my 950 adventure and on my way home Sunday.
Thought about trying Henness Pass is it well marked? No GPS.

My GPS didn't work out there, probably due to the overhanging trees.

Henness Pass is marked at the ends, I believe, but not very well through the forest. It is the main road, so just keeping to the main path should get you through.

Henness Pass

If you go in from Tahoe, you'd be entering from Hwy 89, right?

I don't remember many signs once I was in there, no.

you'll come to a gorgeous lake a bit past the pavement, then you'll start down the hill, pretty bumpy, & lots of rocks when you get down near Malakoff Diggins. you can exit from a lot of places once you get down the hill, I went in at Nevada City & camped at Malakoff and went on from there.

look for signs for Graniteville and North Bloomfield if you want out near Malakoff, if you see a sign for Washington that comes out farther up Hwy 20, about halfway to I-80. No gas, water or food whatsoever.

i think it will be dusty, yes. I went just after a big storm so it was quite damp, no dust at all.

You do have a map of that area?

I was there right after the 3 day storm a few weeks ago. That dust was a 6 inch layer of wet silt. I almost didn't get out in my company Ford Ranger 4X4, spinning the tires (slowly) for about 3 miles coming up out of a dead end logging road with a cliff on one side. Glad it had new tires.
