Starts in Chico and simply head northeast on Highway 32 to Chester & Lake Almanor. You'll be on highway 32 for almost all of the route except for a short section at the end where you turn right on to highway 36 and follow to Chester.
Lots of elevation changes different rock formations, steep canyons, Deer creek with 5 bridges crossings, pastures, Lake Almanor, and pine trees. You'll be passing through the beautiful Lassen National Forest.
A nice twisty mountain road that is maintained year round however has some pot holes and you'll need to watch out for rocks on road. Check weather as there is lots of snow in winter and black ice in some spots. Even if road conditions are pristine, this is not a tranquil ride with all the turns and climbs ... you must be up for this ride.
Couple of stops along the way but plenty of places to eat or refuel at the route's end point in Chester/Lake Almanor.
