winter is coming fast- no rain yet.
So, which one of you are willing or able to plan a route in dirt across the northern portion of this golden state of California?
I am curious, are there routes lesser known or out right brazen to do it routes in the north western corner of the state in which to plot and scheme a covert operation to trek across to Idaho or the northern corner of the state to say - HA HA., We did it - nener nener nener!

I suspect there are a few on this platform that are willing and able to draw a dance with Lady justice to play on our land.

Spring is a good time to start out , time willing - maybe a week trek of a three day exploratory mission to seek out new camp sites and cold friggin creeks and streams somewhere near the Pacific Coast Trail . Of course this is all above board and in compliance with the current and future perceived regulatory statutes as dreamed up by my colorful legislative body within the confines of the State Capitol. What ever!

Who Is game?

I am. I am unable to completely commit at this time (I still work, questionable parental health), but I’m down for helping to plan it out and, hopefully, execute the plan.

A question for you... I did not see the Golden State(ment) requirement about being known to cause cancer...

(I’m living on the central OR coast now, formally from Sacramento.)

Hi Munga, any ideas are helpful. brainstorming I guess at this point. There is some dramatic scenery around Lassen. I am not familiar with the far west coast- Pelican Bay prison is there I think - Some bad dudes. This project is in pursuit of happiness I guess. I appreciate any ideas that would be practical and basic, rustic even. Dry camping and dispersed is my ideal at this point. Gensets are discouraged; loud and interferes with the sounds of nature.....

Here's a post I came across on Expedition Portal, kinda corny but touches on a very cool (to me) concept. I've been thinking about an Oregon Trail based series of mini-adventures/trips and ran across this post & video...

excellent idea. skill level is to be considered. the donner party did not fair well in California. Of course, that was a little while back.

A preliminary view of the region-

The forest service has a 2019 road damage map here. https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd616124.html. The map opens in So-Cal at San Bernardino forest - scroll out and navigate to the north coast. Pretty cool tool.

I found a ribbon of a road that traverses east - west via ridge tops and valleys into Oregon and back. It seems to start at the town of Smith River, North of Crescent City on the coast. There appear to be connecting service roads that are continuous along the state boarder.

Is that ID'd as State Line Ln?

I received a membership to Overland Bound for a Christmas present & have been spending a lot of time exploring the forum there (along with the rest of the site) getting some good, general information. I'll have to see if I can find any info on routes similar to what you're considering.

I dig the map tool you linked.
