After a late Saturday breakfast, we started looking online for any Jeep trails nearby. The closest one we found was the Castle Dome Mountain trail. The trail has a moderately difficult rating, so it looked like the perfect trail for our mildly modified Wrangler. 

We hit the road in the early afternoon and grabbed lunch in town. After a 40 minute drive north on US95 from Fortuna, we came to King Rd. We headed east on a gravel road for several miles before turning onto the two-track that would lead us through the mountains. 

Including the off-chutes and stops, it took us about 3 hours to complete the trail. It wasn’t a difficult trail but some spots required at least a high clearance vehicle. 

Be sure to bring your camera for the scenic views and the wildlife(possibly)!

When you get off the pavement you find the real good stuff.
