    Not sure why the old attachment isn't accessible anymore, and there apparently are still issues with uploading new attachments. If you PM me with your email address, I can email you my Henness Pass gpx file. Note that it is set up as a route, not a track.

    Dirt is all over, squirrel creek after Pike city, and from Alleghany you can go south toward german bar, cross the Yuba then it is pretty steep toward bucks ranch, and you join the Malakoff diggins-graniteville rd.

    Get the good National Geographic map of the Tahoe national forest, it is all there. The Forest service map is not good.

    Have a great time Mendo. Did it just couple weeks back and had a great time! The road has lots of places to cut off and sight see. Main road is no problem but do watch out for the rare log truck. Saw 2 or 3 camps on the southern side. Also heard there might have been snow last night. Doubt it will stick at all but be forewarned it may be a bit cool. Couple weeks ago I was sleeping in a tee-shirt. Crazy time of year. If you want a great place to camp try Bear Valley just a bit north where the trail crosses 89. There's a beautiful canyon towards Sierraville called Lemon Cyn. Spectacular any time of year. Enjoy!
