Ascent Trip Report

I drove CA 20 from I-80 at Yuba Gap to Bowman Lake Rd (FR 18). After 6 miles I turned onto the Grouse Ridge Rd (FR 14)climbing 5.5 miles to Grouse Ridge Campground. From here it is a short walk up the gated road to the deserted, boarded Grouse Ridge L.O., brightly painted with an American flag and the Vietnam War peace symbol. Great views of the Sierra Buttes, Old Man Mountain, and Grouse Lakes Basin.
