Fourth times's a charm! 
At least that’s how many tries it took me to get to Hawley Mountain lookout. I tried in late March from Placerville on Granite Creek road but was stopped by private land posting on what looked to me like a public road. In mid-April I tried again; this time from the south on Hawley Mountain road, but was stopped by a massive snowdrift. Last month I tried riding in from the west on Porter Creek road but was stopped by a gate.  So this time I tried Hawley Mountain Road again and, SUCCESS!
For those interested, the first 1.5 miles of Hawley Mountain road is pretty rutted out. Then it’s easy riding until the last ¼ mile which is a rocky uphill with loose dirt added for good measure.

I rode in the back way through Jerusalem, it was pretty rough and steep in places, I would rate it a 3.5, not big bike friendly.

 I tried to get to three sites on this ride on June 15th. Could not get to the lookout because of these trees laying across the road. Also tried to get to Pilot peak and Sunset LO but was blocked by snow.
