I had a great time yesterday guys, even though we couldn't find star lakesWe now know a lot of the dirt around star lakes though, and where not to find star lakes I got home around 6:15, left North Fork after sundown...wasn't too bad once we got out of the hills & back down into the valley.

If you take the Mt. Raymond road out of Fish Camp you come to the signed junction to Star Lakes. I've seen the sign a few times but have never taken the road. I think what you have pictured is called Iron Lakes.

star what...?

First off. Great ride. Second....well doesn't matter. Got home at 5:47. Jp you must have hauled...or your visit was short. Clocked my trip at 203 miles. We now know how many ways not to get to star. But we also know a few good camp spots now too. The coast has some weather moving in tonight...so maybe we might get some rain or snow up high. I know it limits the riding but we need it!

Nice video JP, I wanted to go but just got the BRP back and wasn't sure it was repaired. I think it is, intermittent CDI failure. I am heading to the desert t day weekend with the other Justin, I remember there was some chatter about some others going. Is that still the case? I am still not sure what part we are heading for heading for.

KimBoy,

I think I saw you Sunday morning on lower Auberry Rd. near Copper. That helmet is hard to miss. I was the one in the blue Mazda CX-9 waving to you.

We were headed to the Color Me Rad 5K run at Woodward Park, otherwise I would of been joining you guys. I am kind of glad you guys didn't find the route into Star Lakes since it is on my list and maybe you will have to try again and I might be able to make it.

This is what we need to find. Stupid directions say take 5S48 to 5S26....we were all over the 5S48 but couldnt find it, although we didn't take the 5S48C offshoot because it seemed to be heading the wrong direction, but hell that must have been it

That was me! Sorry didn't see ya. Most of that early ride was spent thinking how cold my fingers were. If weather permits I may try for star lakes on Mon or tues coming up. How was the color run? Last person I knew who did that forgot towels for the ride home in the car...little messy.

Good Job Monti! Every time (I've only gone once :P) I've come home from the track I have a real hard time being thrilled with the public road pace.

Awesome pictures JP.

Pretty sure Star Lakes is now out of reach for the season I looked at the Sentinel Dome webcam this morning which is at 8k ft., and there's a good amount of snow. S. Dome is about 10 miles north of Star Lakes. The Shaver lake webcam shows no signs of snow, only rain.

It's officially desert riding season

not yet.. there is nothing forcast for 10 days ! the incoming mono winds may evaporte alot of that 4 or 5 inches of snow by the middle of next week leaving it looking like the photos from the trip last weekend. We may get up till the middle of December before it is totally closed from snow,
