Ascent Trip Report

The turnoff from CA 3 to Bonanza King L.O. is across from the Trinity Campground, shortly beyond the Coffee Creek Store. A sign reads 10 miles to the L.O. After 9.4 miles on the good, moderately steep dirt road (FSR 38N85)I arrived at the regularly staffed L.O. Lynn, a veteran of 15 years at this L.O., was on duty today The panoramic view is impressive, including Mt. Shasta, the Trinity Alps Wilderness, and Trinity Lake. No question in my mind that Bonanza King L.O. ranks among California's top 10 L.O.s for the scenic quality it provides.
