I think you made a left at the Y. Stay to the right,
and follow it down to Retreat Kanaskat Rd. Used to
be a dirt road that went down to the Burnt Area,
AKA Sand Pits. You have to cross the tracks, and
you'll find a hill that goes straight up to a place
where people take their quads. You used to get
to it from the backside from 4 corners, where the
new Safeway sits. been a long time since I've been
out there, but my brother says people still ride out
Anyway, that hill that went straight up used to be
slick as snot. The only way I made it up was on a
dirt bike when it was dry. It was called "Bird Swamp."
Sonuds like you might have been out near Selleck.
