Red Mountain Trail is real rough. Maintained by local 4WD clubs. Maybe a lifted &/or locked 4WD would be the better choice. This road should be taken by only experienced off-roaders!
- Red Lake
Bluer than blue!! Western Sierra lake that is not easy to reach, but with 4WD vehicle, horseback or backpacking in on foot, the water source is a prime lake destination. Good fishing & great camping. It takes a determination to access this special place, so you may as well spend a couple of days here. The first lake you reach will be Red Lake, just keep going another 2 miles up. Winter weather can snow as early as October, and by December the dirt road is usually closed for the season.
