Special information: The Takilma community, a cluster of odd-looking houses along the East Fork Illinois River, dates to the 1960s counterculture movement. Residents are friendly but don’t like to be gawked at, so be low key and respectful. Starting in the fascinating Takilma community, this is a beautiful drive that culminates at a craggy summit and an overlook of the East Fork Illinois River canyon. You will see some unusual botany, impressive glacial geology, and the Siskiyous’ most impressive peak cluster.
