The trail is back open to off road vehicles!

We completed it on 9/9/2017
This is not a trail for the casual wheel, I would not attempt it with out at least one locker and rock sliders.

But if you have the right rig, I would highly recommend this tail. We completed it in about 5 hours but where going pretty slow with lots of stops along the way.

This trail is currently closed due to a lawsuit in El Dorado National Forest. The trail should re-open by late 2016. For more info please see the EDNF 42 Routes info page:

Very fun trail. Clover valley is one of the most beautiful peaceful valleys i have ever seen. The creek is clear and cool and a great place for a dip to wash all the dust off. Great remote camping spots along the creek. Never crowded
