Overview

The High Valley Road climbs through very pretty pine forest and provides frequent peekaboo views of Clear Lake, which at 68 square miles is the largest natural freshwater lake in California (remember that Lake Tahoe is partially in California and partially in Nevada). You'll also see 4,305 foot tall Mount Konocti, which is still classified as an active volcano-- although it last erupted over 11,000 years ago. High Valley Road is a great way to climb up to the intersection with Bartlett Springs Road, which leads deep into the Mendocino National Forest.
