Hwy 3 - Hayfork Pass

Updated: Aug 27, 2018




Much of California is highly populated.

You probably already know that. And an oft repeated gripe of some motorcyclists far and wide is there are too many people on the roads. Cities are too busy. Twisty roads are too far out, just getting there is a trek in itself. However, let me clue you in on a not-so-secret secret. One of the best things about far Northern California no one else will tell you is that once you get out into the open ranges, there really aren't too many people around in these parts. All the far northern NorCal local riders smugly sit down at night to read the latest copy of Motorcyclist magazine knowing they have the all-time-greatest-roads in their backyard- and without all the traffic. Time the ride just right and you'll have the road all to yourself. Imagine that!

Quite simply, there’s a lot less people up here. Just a little more than 14,000 residents are spread across Trinity County’s 3,000 square miles. And Trinity County is a sprawling mountainous region of Northern California. Need we say more?


“In between Highway 36 and Highway 299 is this short north-south 36-mile connector that is a real hoot ride. That’s right, I said it, A Hoot!

Okay here’s a bit more:

In between Highway 36 and Highway 299 is this short north-south 36-mile connector that is a real hoot ride. That’s right, I said it, a hoot. The small town of Hayfork sits in the middle of this ride- and what a ride it is!
