off road driving
Been all over this area in a car not hiking. This is an approach road to the more secluded Mt. Shasta routes. Watch out for logging trucks as these drive fast with no warning they are approaching. Best to find a logger so he can radio ahead and give warning. I ruined a transmission in one part of this wilderness so be prepared. Various montane scrub denuded by logging. I have driven about half of this area using two wheel drive and have not seen the entire route.
