OB Central Valley: Corral Hollow / Deer Valley Trip

This will be an exciting weekend trip up in the Sierra Mountains. This trip will get technical and is NOT trailer friendly. 4x4 with AT tires are a must. Being capable of airing down is highly recommended (bring an air compressor). High vehicle clearance is a plus. Extra fuel is recommended.

Rally Point Notes:

We be leaving from the Mobil Gas Station at 1200hrs sharp on Friday (7-24-20). From there, we will be heading East on HWY 4 to the Western Corral Hollow OHV Trail. The plan to camp at the Mountain Vista, the Corral Hollow campground will be the back up site.

Satuday (7-25-20) we will finish the Corral Hollow Trail and then head further up HWY 4 to the Deer Valley OHV Trail. This day WILL be the most difficult section of the trip. Time permitting, we will have lunch at the Lower Blue Lake Dam. From there, we will head back down the trail to Deer Valley for camp.

Sunday (7-26-20) we will be finishing the back track on the Deer Valley Trail to HWY 4. Then, unfortunately, we are headed home.

Please make reference the to following waypoints:

  • Corral Hollow Trail (Friday)
    • West Trail Head (38.41293, -120.13654)
    • Old Forest Cabin (38.47095, -120.09328)
    • Corral Hollow Campsites (38.47955, -120.07413) - depending on how many rigs attend, this will be our secondary campsite.
    • Mountain Vista Campsite (38.47930, -120.06392) - this will be our 1st choice for our campsite if available.
    • East Trail Head (38.45693, -120.05284)
  • Deer Valley Trail (Saturday)
    • South Trail Head (38.53831, -119.897)
    • South Water Crossing (38.571542, -119.914807) -Primary Campsite for the night
    • North Water Crossing (38.591271, -119.919831) -Secondary Campsite for the night
    • North Trail Head (38.60926, -119.92461) -Tertiary Campsite for the night

The ultimate goal for Saturday is to make it to the North Trail Head and have lunch at the dam and then back track to the south water crossing for camp. This would make Sunday morning a little easier.

If for some reason that does not happen due to time, we can make camp when we 1st get to the south water crossing and save the rest of the trail for Sunday morning. Then take HWY 88 home. This will obviously add miles and time to your trip home. When the time comes, we can make group decision.
