Overview

Meandering along the banks of the Kings River and then traversing up the hills to pristine Ruby Lake, this off-road trail is certainly recommended for the adventurous soul. While not proving too difficult during the drier summer months, the muddy sections and hills can prove to be a challenge to less capable rigs in inclement weather. Fishing is supposed to be good at Ruby Lake (license required) and it is stocked. The views of Ruby Lake and the surroundings are spectacular and well worth the gas burned on enjoying this corner of Alaska's wilderness.
