Trinity Alps Wilderness, California.
The Trinity Alps Wilderness lies west of Interstate 5; near Lake Shasta, within view of Mount Shasta. They have a rugged, remote feel with passes and bare granite ridges topping 8,000 feet. The area has a gold rush history and remnants of man's incessant search for it are frequent. In the fall the area had a remote feel; trails duff covered, brush tight to the tread, days without people.
Many areas visited have a remote and pristine feel.
Would be interesting to understand management's trail maintenance resources and priorities
How many years ago was this carefully constructed turnpike last maintained?
