Have you ever been up to Star lakes? There's a cool jeep trail up to the rim of the Merced canyon.

I've been to iron lake, but not star. Heard there might be snow down to 6,500' near yosemite Saturday night I'm all for heading that way this Sunday, there's a lot of exploring that needs to be done

the ridge above Star lake. pics from summer...

Iron lake is not far from Star.

Star lake and the Merced river valley. If it snows, there's plenty of lower elevation stuff to explore.

I like this idea of star lake. Perry's pics sealed the deal. I'll be flying around sat so I should be able to report if any white stuff is falling. Ride time!

Hey Matt, nice to have a spotter pilot.

I'll PM wrk2surf to see if he can be our guide, he knows that area like his backyard. I've only been up there once, we took the Sugarpine trail from near Bass Lake up to the Star Lake jeep trail...if Mike can't go maybe Justin can map out tracks?
Where should we meet on Sunday? Time? My brother Jack might go.
He's been jonesing to get on that 450 in the dirt.

Jonesing. Yup good feeling. You think you could make Prather off hwy 168 at 9-930? Meet at shell station there. Then ride up Auberry road into Northfork and bass lake area to surgar pine. If ya got another spot chime in.

Shell station in Prather? Is there a good place to park the truck/trailer? What's the cross street @ 168?

Shell station is at intersection of auberry rd and hwy 168. Lots of parking for truck/trailer combo close by. Sorry I'm not as talented as Jp throwing up gps maps on here yet.
