We headed to Oriental Wash from Gold Point and found this road to be a well graded two track dirt road. All was going well until my GPS routed me into a wash heading to Death Valley Road. It appeared my GPS was wrong so we stayed on the dirt road thinking it would connect in a few miles to Death Valley Road.
I should have taken out my map and doubled checked because we would up on Tule Canyon and then connected to highway 266 and then 168 back to Big Pine.
This took us longer but it turned out OK because none of us had ever ridden through Tule Canyon and it was, I think, a more fun route than the one I had planned.
Plus Rich and Jim loved the twisties, even though it was paved, on 168.
