The other weekend I was up with some co-workers in the mountains camping near Green Valley. We decided to leave our campsite on Saturday afternoon and head over to Green Valley Lake for some fishing. On the way to the lake, we decided to take a nice scenic off-road detour along Forest Route 2N19.
The map above can be downloaded and viewed on Caltopo here, and the start of the drive can be found on Google Maps here.
For my mostly stock non-lifted Jeep Wrangler JK, the trail was absolutely no problem. There were one or two spots that were pretty washed out, but the trail was wide enough to sneak by on the side without going off the trail at all.
The trail starts off climbing up and then brings you to some amazing views out your passenger side windows to the valley below.
Forest Route 2N19 was very well maintained and you could see there was work actively being done along the route. There were a number of down trees which recently looked like they had been cut up so they were no longer blocking the road. There were also a few closed sections with arrows pointing you to take other trails which we followed out and back to civilization.
In the map above you can see where we leave Forest Route 2N19 which brought us on a connecting trail to Forest Route 2N13D which eventually spit us out into a Green Valley Campground. This was a little odd because we followed all the trail arrow signs which looked fresh, but there was road closed signs in Green Valley Campground that closed the trail from their end.
