Forty year ago, when I was a deer hunter, or at least tried to be one, I used to hunt in the area east of Covelo. Had I known about the B-17 then I would have visited it. Today it is behind a locked gate and only open to hikers willing to walk the last 3 miles.
i would contact the ranger station at upper lake directly to ask about trail conditions. i went up there from stoneyford last fall and many fs maps are incorrect with regards to route markers and trail conditions. one trail was cut off with several downed trees, due to recent logging activities, which left us on the long end of a dead end trail. we ended up off roaring a couple of hairy sections to go around the logs, and we now carry folding saws with us. very pretty area. the stoneyford orv area was a bit too "yahoo" for my dad and i, but seems very popular.

In tempe for 5 days and looking to find some folks to ride trails with. I have no familiarity with the area. Have tons of experience and comfortable on the most challenging terrain but also happy to do more casual stuff. Generally available in the evenings Text 907.707.4757
Also if you just have...
OK, this is primarily for total noobs and experienced road riders, just getting into off-road.
And even experienced off-road demons maybe, as a quick refresher.
And yes, we certainly are lucky enough to have off-road "pros" on this forum who could easily have scripted this vid!
I hope they will...
