What bike will you be on and what kind of roads are you looking for?

Intermittent road closures are great. They allow you to get ahead of traffic and have a 10 minute gap until the next set of vehicles ahead.

Ha!! I have been waiting for both you and Lonster to pop up on this thread

OP - DTrides^^^ goes everywhere, all the time---like all.the.time, he'll hook you up for suresies, and possibly track you down. But everything everyone else has said are good suggestions. Us locallies scamper all over these (when we aren't @ the track )

I'd second the mention of lurking law-peeps on 299, and depending how far you take 299, there are currently some impressive construction waits as well...299 is very meh compared to 36.

I'm on a fz1 and my buddy is on a s1000rr. This is his first multiday trip so I'm building in a chill day on Saturday. We'll probably need to bust into a town for provisions (we're camping at grizzly SP in Carlotta for 2 nights) so a local route with neat roads that takes us to a town would be good.

Only one paved road back to Hydesville (Murrish Market) from your camp ground.
Murrish should have most everything you need or you can go into Fortuna which has several larger markets (Safeway, Rays, Grocery outlet, liquor stores etc.).
Weekends on 36 have only short delays in several areas.
Will be out there this weekend and can report back.
If you decide to ride a bit on Sat. maybe take 36 to 3 and down to Hayfork for lunch, then head east on 3 to Wildwood rd . That will take you back to 36 and west back to campground.
Have fun!
DT

My dad is brand inspector up there and just told me this story last weekend that may be of interest to you. When 36 is closed on a weekday, look for the schoolbus at pickup and dropoff times. They have to get through. He either heard or talked directly to a moto guy who had gotten through that way, following tight on the schoolbus. Of course, school is probably ending this or next week so limited value info. At any rate, a feller who didn't know about the closure at least was able to get through.

36 to 99 to 32 then left back on 36 over lake Almanore then down 70 through to 20. Then Bob's your uncle into 53, 29, and 128. Where ever you want to go from there.

This, or some iteration of this, is a staple for Duncan and I. Can't go wrong with this route.

That's a huge part of the Saddlesore 1000 route I'll be doing in July. 70 is absolutely amazing.

Subbed. On my bucket list to explore north of the GG Bridge and beyond. Just got back from a family minivan road trip to Oregon and the whole time I fantasized returning to the NorCal and giving the endless roads and scenery proper justice. Some day.

Driving through prime motorcycling country can be painful when you're stuck in a cage.
