Water in lake is super low with all the Dam issues. This is the launch ramp off 162 where that horse camp place is.

There is also the fire road detour that feels like it is about 4 miles long. (if you don't like the single track). Given an adventure bike, both options have the advantages and disadvantages.

Went a little ways up the detour a couple days ago. It's super well maintained, the part I was on you could easily ride a GW on(not that I have ever rode one). Not sure if it gets worse further up.

Someone placed a bunch of flyers explaining the detour route since last time I was up there. You just rip one off and follow the directions.

Wasn't bad, lowest I saw on the dash was 47. I was wearing one of those cheap windproof base layers from Cycle Gear(legs,top and head). Between that, a windshield, heated grips and hand guards I was very comfortable. Never even bothered with the glove liners. Had to stop and take the hood part of the base layer off when I got outa the hills. Was mid 60's on the valley floor.

The wet roads and the fear of ice, now that's a different story. There was a little pucker factor.

Since moving out this way, this is my Mines/Mt Hamilton/Del Puerto road. Almost every weekend chasing/pissing off sportbikers, on my little bitty 450 Supermoto.

Road is still closed and don't expect to be opened by Summer. Still a fun run from Oroville to the closing. Lately I have been running that road on my new toy looking for riders to play with.

Because of this closure I am forced to ride from Paradise highway 70 do some fishing on Feather River head up towards Quincy and ride the twisties, where before I would ride from Oroville to Bucks Lake a few times. Fortunately I have the perfect bike to make this journey and still manage to piss off sportbikers on this big girl.

Shoot me a PM if you wana go for a ride.

I don't ride 162 as much this time of year, even if warm the corners will be wet. When it gets warmer it's easy enough to get around the slide on a bike.

Have you tried the foothill loop? Head out 32 then take a left after Black Butte lake and head to Elk Creek for lunch(Nancy's Buckhorn). Then either head down 162 or head on to Stony Ford before heading back toward 5. Fun loop, beautiful this time of year and warmer(lower) and usually drier. Not as twsty as 162 though.

From last week.
