Soon the piutes maps be relese and all the good trails there be destroy also .
At least no many riders ride the domeland area .Is the only part unmolested in the southern sierras

that is a little be the history and why the trail still there.
That is a great story Javier on the history of the Rincon/Cedar canyon trails. Thanks for all you're trail work up there! It's nice to have these trails close to home...By the way the suspension on the KTM 525 is still working great! And I pound on it alot, over 120 hours since you "trailtricked it".
