Ascent Trip ReportFrom CA 89 in Hat Creek Valley turn on Doty Rd and left on Bidwell Rd (FS 22)past the Hat Creek Radio Observatory entrance, At the Bidwell Ranch turn left on FS 22 and ascend to the Hat Creek Rim. At the top of the Rim FS 22 connects with FSR 30N18 and then with FS 18 4.5 miles from the end of Bidwell Rd at the Bidwell Ranch. At 5.5 miles an unsigned road (FSR 30N63) turns right and in 1.6 miles ends at the communication facility at the edge of the Rim. The former Hat Creek Rim L.O. here was destroyed by the 1987 Lost Fire. This spot also serves as a launch site for hang gliders and is crossed by the PCT. On the return I followed FS 18 and FSR 33N34 to the scenic overlook of the Hat Creek area at CA 44.
