Kavanaugh Ridge and Dunderberg Mill
We took a much needed break from reality by staying at our cabin in Twain Harte over the weekend. Highlight of the trip was our 4X4 journey up to Kavanaugh Ridge off of the Green Creek Road near Virginia Lakes. The road ends at 11,000' and overlooks the Hoover Wilderness and many lakes several thousand feet below. The wind was blowing well over 50mph during our visit, but on a calmer day it would be an epic picnic spot. The K.R. Trail should only be attempted by high-clearance 4x4 trucks or SUV's. We parked our Subaru Ascent at the trail sign and piled into Grandpa's Frontier for the final three miles to the top.
