Always wanted to get up into the Sweetwaters, but never have. Did you take in the other nearby camps?

Yes, the last 2 months ive been only exploring the Sweetwater Mountains. I hit Belfort, Star City, Silverado Mill, and the Nugent Cabin. The road to Cameron is blocked with a locked gate..tried to get to the Clinton townsite but the trail was blocked by a fallen pine tree...im going to bring a hand saw next trip.

I'm replying late to this, but *how* do I get up to Belfort and Star City?  I know *where* they are, but it looks like you have to approach from Nevada (338).  I have read on other forums that you can approach from the North and/or West within CA, but zero details.  Given the terrain, I think I'd rather have a helo from the USMC MWTC fly me in. :)

Right, and thank you.  But I have read that it can be approached from within CA as well, but the info is thin.  Just curious if you've ever run across a way in from CA.  I could do it on horseback, but that would take longer than I have (though it would be infinitely more fun than driving).
