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.
