Default Bonetti road conditions?

Hey All. Has anyone made it up there recently? I know weíve had a pretty steady cycle of rain and snow so I just wanted to see if anyone has been up there and knows the condition. My biggest concern is if itís too muddy as Iím driving almost three hours to get there and would prefer to not go all the way to find out my car canít make it. Thanks for the info!

You’re not going to make it in a car. We got blasted with a heavy amount of snow this last week/weekend. Snowline was down to Cameron Park on Sunday. Chain control was at the pollock pines exit with about 3 feet of snow off the side of the road.

I have not been up recently, but I think snow is going to be much more of an issue than mud, at least for the time being. I however do not know if they clear the snow, but I did not get the feeling they did the last few times I was up there during the winter, where a car would not have made it very far.

Bonetti in under 6 feet of snow and the road leading up to it (Mormon Immigrant Trail / Iron Mountain Road) is not plowed during the snow season. Bonetti Road gets way more snow than the town of Pollock pines does because it is actually a couple hundred feet higher in elevation then the town. Unless you have a serious 4x4 stay far away. Check out the weather camera on the Lake. The snow is crazy. http://www.slyparkweathercam.com/

Thought I would post up current conditions on Bonetti.

I have been out there most weekends for the last month. for several weeks I was the only one that went past Camp Creek (2 miles in) as there was a 36" cedar down in the road.

currently the snow in gone to Stonebreaker creek (1.2 miles), then clear past Camp Creek. shooting areas are almost all clear of snow that far.

We cleared all the trees on the road back 4 miles 3 weeks ago, but lots of small stuff everywhere. After Camp Creek you will hit snow on the first corner but can make it in a standard 4X4 another 1.5 miles.
2 of us did drive all the way through on Saturday to North South Road, its 12.7 miles and it took us over 4 hours. Snow gets up to 3 feet deep still on the south end. all trees are cleared other than those that were buried in the snow that we could drive over. we will go back in a couple weeks and get those as the snow melts.

All clear. I didn't go all the way back but didn't hit any snow. Camp Creek is raging. It's beautiful out here. I missed it.

The snow just past Stonebreaker melted the end of last week. You will need 4WD about 4.5 miles back but that should melt off in the next week or so. Dirt roads off of Bonetti will remain closed until April 15th now
