Default Pine Flat Rd. Healdsburg

Ive gone up to pine flat road many times to check out the snow, and i have been recently been going there to shoot where there is a makeshift "range".
Im pretty sure its all just blm land where this range is and is safe to shoot ie no roads/houses or anything but a mountain across the valley maybe 400 yards?

The thing about this place is no one cleans the place up. 1000's of shells from .22-.45, shotgun shells, to .223 and everything in between. All sorts of junk people take to shoot the living S#IT out of and trash in general. I would love to be able to go there and really clean the place up. Im in santa rosa and wondering if anyone else knows/goes to this place and feels the same way?

Im thinking that maybe a few SUVs full of people and a truck, shovels, bags, maybe some beer (or ice water depending if anyone wants to shoot that day), and it could be a decent place to go.

thoughts?

heres a pic i took with my phone

Sounds like a great idea. Set up a north bay range day and make sure people bring tools to clean the works up a bit. Rakes, buckets, shovels, maybe some materials for target stands.

My Datsun Z likely won't make it up there.

my girlfriends honda civic made it just fine lol.
its mostly paved road untill you go off for only about 60 yards

ive been talking to a few people i know that might be down to help. ill try to set something up in stone, ill keep everyone posted and see what kind of materials i can bribe out of some people for things like target stands and benches.

also 1mean76, a tractor doesnt sound like a bad idea haha maybe do a little grading and leveling. take down some shrubbery(sp?) for better parking.

Definitely keep me posted on this. I can contribute my sweat and small pickup for hauling. It would be very nice to have someplace informal to shoot that's a lot closer than Cow Mountain. I wasn't aware of this spot at all so well done on a good find!!

Found some info on the area in general at http://sonoma.net/blog/pine-flat-roa...ldsburg-54.htm. There is a link in that page to information about an Audubon Society bird sanctuary thats up there.

yeah the bird sanctuary is about half way to the place, so you drive into it and then right out of it. its basically just a sign that says bird sanctuary dont hunt the birds lol.

I have never been there but I will help if I can. It is just up the road from me and I have some friends that shot there. I do work for beer. You may want to post this on northbayshooters.com and get some more locals.

After hearing Don Kilmer talk at Circle S today I headed up the road. I drove all the way to the end. All I found was a really bad shooting gallery loaded with glass and bottles hanging from tree limbs along with a tv, rim, and a few other big items. That spot shoulg be cleaned up too but it might be too unsafe to try cleaning.

I am not too far and might be up for that, one question though is being sure about what this land is? Is it for sure BLM?

Im not to far away and would love to have a closer piece of BLM land to shoot on. I'd love to help, lets make a date and confirm that its BLM land and do it!

BTW I think I may have to bring my own beer though. Cant stand coors.

That map was very helpful. I went up there today and it was tons of fun. I only brought a .22 magnum for this first outing. There's a lot of trash up there, mostly consisting of empty cartridge boxes and shot shells. Next time I head up I bringing trash bags and a rake to get all the shells. There were also some paint cans, various scrapped electronic devices turned into targets, a pile of clothes, a bit of broken glass from beer bottles, and a VERY large yellow sign for no real reason. I managed to find 12rds of 7.62x39mm someone left up there which looked brand new. There was only one snake that I saw, and it was in the drying up pond next to the range. Some kind of blue water snake with two yellow lines stretching the length of it's back. I'm not a fan of snakes...RIP.

I think I may make a run up there this next weekend. I'll pack out whatever crap I can fit, we're cleaning out my late father in law's place so we're making dump runs anyway.

I am doing some searching on the SoCo Assessor's web site. The street address as assigned by Google Map is a bust. Using the tract as a search term returns a lot of records. I have a hunch a trip to the assessor's office and a thumb through of the plot maps is going to be in order.

Undetermined. It sure looks like BLM though

The bird sanctuary signs stopped appearing, and so did the private property signs.

thats what my thoughts are.
take any pics while you were up there?

I've got vacation coming up in a couple of weeks. When that happens I'll see about doing the research at the assessor's office. From what I've been able to glean in on line searching, BLM does not own anything close to that area.

Range Report:

Really small place, only one party at a time may shoot, not super dirty, but a single lane road in, and LOTS of bike riders on it, so go Slow or you'll get some crap on your truck grill!

No, it''s just a small area. There is a "target area" off to the left, but I wouldn't use it as you're firing in the direction of Pine Flat Rd. There's only one safe firing direction IMHO.

Good to hear there is a place in northbay since I am there a fair amount. I'll have to make it up there. If I do, I would be happy to bring some junk home.
