Go up through Paradise on up through sterling city and then past innskip. Find Philbrook lake on a map and go past to spring valley resoviour. There's also morris lake which has a pretty cool little hill to come out of. Been quite a few years since I was there last.

Gold Lake area has the Snake Lake trail. Short, but challenging for stockers.

If you ever make it up to Redding, contact me and I'll show you around up here. Most will tell you that there aren't any hardcore areas here, that's because most don't know the private land owners, or they're just driving dirt roads looking and don't know where to go.

Do people still go all the way to little deer lake and out that way? I haven't been there since 1990, but it used to a great place.

You have to drive on dirt roads for about an hour if you're hauling to get to high lakes, it takes only a little bit longer to get to fordyce from chico and its a lot better.
