Highlights

Highlight: 14N07 to Wentworth Springs (Route)
This route to Wentworth Springs sits northeast of Pollock Pines, California, high in the mountains of the Eldorado National Forest. 14N07 to Wentworth Springs is an easy, scenic route traveling through dense forest, crossing multiple creeks, passing through the historic site of Wentworth Springs and ending at not only the Wentworth Campground, but the original beginning of the legendary Rubicon Trail. Those new to off-road will enjoy this route for its scenery, history and mild off-road challenges while more advance wheelers will probably be more focused on the Rubicon Trail at the end.
