This rural Eastern California National Forest region is located on US Highway 395 (north of Mammoth and south of Lake Tahoe). Autumn and aspen colors are quite impressive in this area, so make plans to visit in late September or October if you like to fish. Wildflowers happen here from May to July. Summer brings the crowds. Many dirt roads to explore. Boondock and camp for free.
Toiyabe North - recent wildfire did much damage around the small mountain town of Markleeville; Grover Hot Springs State Park may still be closed to the public.
Autumn aspen groves draw tourist sightseers every year as fall colors peak in October and are complete by November (with the first snow fall). Quite popular among all outdoor enthusiasts - hunters, fishermen, RV campers, backpackers, day hikers, car campers, horse packers, mountain bikers, dirt bikers, motorcyclist, boaters, kayakers, canoers, antique shoppers, cattle ranchers, snow skiers, cross country folks, and the most relaxed of all, hot springs soakers.
