NorCal Roadtrips

An Explorer's Guide to Northern California

  The Highway to Anywhere


This site is targeted at the traveler who wishes to select a particular road or region and go exploring. If you like to camp, sightsee, fish, boat or drive off-road we have attempted to provide you with information to facilitate that in one place. If you want a romantic getaway with a solid roof in a nice location we've got a few suggestions. Our area is northern California. We do not venture much farther south than southern Yosemite and Fresno, except sometimes.

The site is, and always will be, a work-in-progress. So far it includes a guide to national and state parks located in northern California, most lakes and some rivers, several special getaways and a few quirky things like fire lookout towers for rent. All in the name of good, clean fun. Each section will improve over time. So pick a road and go exploring.

We have just completed our coverage of roadtrips within the national forests located in northern California. So if unpaved forest service roads, remote lakes and crowd-free camping are your thing, take a look. If you like to hike, bike, camp, fish, canoe/kayak, raft or ride a horse, there's something for everyone.
