Off Road Adventure

Sport utility vehicle owners take note!  Plumas County has plenty of well-maintained, unpaved forest service roads that lead to lakes, look-outs and picnic sites.  The roads access some 1.2 million acres of public land that can keep intrepid explorers happy for days on end.

Brochures featuring four popular backcountry road adventures, designed with SUV's in mind, are available at area visitor centers.

If you're looking for more rugged off-highway adventure, head for one of the 4X4 routes, staging areas or campgrounds developed specifically for off-highway vehicles. Or try this new 4x4 website, called Plumas 4x4. They have forums where you can ask questions and get answers from local off road enthusiasts. The Plumas National Forest visitor map is available for sale at area Forest Service offices to help guide off-highway users. To avoid fines, stay on designated roads and trails.
