The Pacific Crest Quest is a good place to start. Also, do a search of the forum using "modoc discovery".

If you do this ride after snow melt, then you can have some fun riding from
Lake Tahoe to the coast range. Depending where you cross, and how much
pavement you want in your 'dual' sport ride, you can dirt road your way to
32 using the Lassen and/or Modoc discovery trails.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ight=dakariste

If you decide at Hwy 32 or 36 to cross the valley, you can use the smaller dirt routes north of Hwy 162 (becomes FH7) to Covelo. I like M22 out of
Corning because it is the steepest. From Covelo you can skirt the Yolla Bolly
Wilderness and head north. This will lead you to Hwy 36 and many dirt routes north.

By the way you can make it from Lake Tahoe to Usal Beach in a day, on mostly dirt roads, except across the Sacramento Valley. Well there's one canal from Ord Bend to Willows but that's a secret passage.

When I headed north into Southern Oregon, from about Hoopa north the campgrounds had firewood. In Oregon, of course the campgrounds were also free. I have a fond memory of Agness on the Rogue River and the dirt to Myrtle Point.

Check http://www.smts.info/ It doesn't have what you are looking for except the the PCQ I took of this board. I will be working on more links in Nor-Cal this summer.

I also have lots of tracks on GPSXchange.com under my private library.

tahoe to medford

bbenn,

It's funny you should ask this question. The second week of Sept I will be going from Medford to Tahoe, which of course is opposite of your route. Plan A Route will take me through Lassen, then Tahoe, then Yosemite, ending at my 3-day fishing layover at Lake Huntington CA before heading to San Jose and up the coast on 101. The route to Huntington is too long, for me, for a two-day adventure but is not quite long enough for a fulfilling 3-day ride. I'm looking for some alternatives along the way. I'll keep you posted if I can find some routes that look interesting.

This will get you close to Klamath Falls.

When we went through Bordertown (or whatever that little development on 395 at the border is called) there was a lot of construction going on. I don't know the current access to those roads.

We recently left So. Lake Tahoe on Hwy-50 toward Ice House Res. We ended up dropping into motorcycle only trail 14E09 heading north, via trail 14E11. I was on a 690R and my buddies were on XR650Rs, we were on the wrong bikes. This trail would be hard on 450's. It's single track, rock ledges, switchbacks, and switchbicks with rock ledges. I ended up spending the night with a smoked clutch and the xr's were pretty overheated.

As of the latest Google Maps update, no, access looks about the same.

Awesome!!! I am going to head to Truckee to stay for a night and then head down to check this place out. Does anyone know of any dirt cheap places in Tahoe. I found these two sites, South Lake Tahoe Deals and South Lake Tahoe Hotels but I was hoping ot find something even cheaper. Any locals know of a cheap place to stay? I don't have much loot so I don't care how cheap it is...
