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.
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.
The Plumas National Forest visitor map is available for sale to help guide off-highway users. To avoid fines, stay on designated roads and trails.
