Questions about Eagle Lake OHV

Has anyone ever been to Eagle Lake OHV in the Susanville, CA area? I have a friend that's going up there this upcoming weekend and he's invited me, the only thing is that it's like a 5 and a half hour drive from San Jose and I was wondering if it was even worth it being that it's a longer drive for me than going to the Rubicon, and if so how difficult are the trails out there. I can't really find anything on the web about any trails outside of what's on the BLM site. His rig is pretty set up as he has a 4-Door JK Rubicon on 37", winch, armor and what not and he claims that it's worth the drive but I wanted to get some more opinions.

Thanks,
Fred R.

I have only heard about the Fort Sage OHV area. High desert type terrain, limited trails for dirtbikes and Jeeps. For a 5+ hour ride I would definitely want to know what it was all about too...

If you trust that your buddy knows what he is talking about, then do the trip...

Don't forget some of those cold ones....

And post up a trail report if you do go, so others can know if it is worthwhile or not....

I live in susanville, and ride my motorcycle on eagle lake road every single day in the summer. im very familiar with the area, but i just got a jeep.

what exactly are you talking about?? theres a bunch of old logging trails? theres a few cool spots off of highway 44...ive only had my jeep for two weeks, but i couldnt see why it would be worth a five hour drive? all the pictures of all of these cool spots on this forum make me think it sucks up here...but then again i dont really know where anything is?

I use to work up in the Susanville area. This time of year it would take you more like 6.5 hours to get to the Eagle Lake Area. There's some good fun 4 wheeling spots in the area, but nothing like the Rubicon. Lots of old logging roads, and a few hill climbs here and there out by the prison's.
