ok so the begining of a long post here goes.

I will start with a picture of the trail map of the area cant get a good zoom with it on photobucket but wanted to post it up.




the trails we ran are all labeled on this map. i have another map but the trails are marked different than that map and this all trails have the same markers as it is mapped

so trail 611 is the main trail that runs though the area it is a mild trail with a few difficult parts that can be bypassed except one area i ran this trail in 4hi with no lockers except table rock to get a feel of the difficulty even table rock did not need lockers and was not to bad.

table rock

video
no lockers for referance not to difficult could have done it easier with spotting


there is also tons of rocks that people at table rock that people stack to get stock vehicles though ran into some of the friends of the highlakes crowd and they say its a common thing in the year they get stacked making it a very easy obstacle. This trail goes way back into lassen national forrest and is the main trail to get to all the lakes.

they also told me the route trail 519 to bear and pipejam lakes is a really good trail and fairly challenging but i did not have the time to run this trail as everyone needed to leave and i didnt want to attempt it myself.

the next trails are 613 and 614 these trails go to campbell and long lakes the trails are fairly easy with some moderate portions and bypasses around the harder areas with shallow water crossings.

It is fairly close to Lake Pillsbury. Sort of south of there, Mill creek, Covalo area. According to news, they are restricting access to most trails, fire roads in most of Mendocino National Forest for that area. Also other fires by Indian Valley Res as well. It's a mess up there. As of today only 10% containment.

Those trails look knarly droze! I'd love to try those, but my poor little TJ on worn out 31's and open diff would struggle. I'll probably opt for the less knarly trails.

I will be on the less knarly ones myself. figure some may want to try some harder stuff. so have a friend that is willing to lead a group if anyone wants to break off sometime during the day.

cool vid. looked like a good time . I would say you would like the morris lake run. I would say its harder than anything i tried on the rubicon (only bypass was little sluice). its a great run with bigger rocks the hard part is the loose dirt and smaller rocks that give very limited traction. only about a 1/4 mile not to bad in due to gravity, the way out how ever took a couple hours and some winching, usually bigger crawlers down there from what i understand. the little rubi was out of her league but still did really well.
