We probably start at the main entrance off Sierra, then either take the west trail (easier) or the east trail (difficult uphill climb), but not sure what time we can get to Bouquet. I have no idea where camino, but the plan is to do the whole loop.

Posvat, any recommendation which route to take? I heard that the uphill climb, there were a lot of jeeps ended up turning over and crashing down. I would guess take the west route, texas canyon, to sierra pelona to boueqet canyon staging area, then down rohher and back to sierra.

Any one been there before?

hola hatechains!!!!! first of all rowher flats is not hard!!!!!!!! i did it with my 950adv and didn't drop it!!!!!! so all you advr's going fear not!!!!

when you get to the entrance of sierra hwy go up the pave road which turns into dirt..... take it all the way to the first staging area....

when you get to the first staging area turn left on the dirt road and follow it down to the end.... there will be a locked gate... look for the sign that says fall trail that will take you up all the way up!!!!! when you see the cement bunker turn right and follow the trail till you get to the locked red gate and continue down till you hit bouquet canyon road then turn left and about a mile from there is the boquet canyon staging area.... stop there and look for the entrance to the camino del sur road... it's ten miles of easy dirt road which hooks up with boquet again....

well .... have fun and see up there!!!

New shoes for Doghouse .

For those planning to do the entire loop, here's the waypoints and coordinates. I don't think the Garmin will show the trails, but I made copies of the trail map which I will bring for those who need it.

W.P.-- MAP-- MILE------ LAT--------- LONG
1 -------SP/01------ 0 -------34 29 59.3---- 118 22 52.7--- 5N13 Main Entrance/Rush Canyon Rd
2 -------SP/02 ------2.8----- 34 31 37.8 ----118 22 53.6 ---5N14 Texas Canyon/Rowher Junction
3 -------SP/03 ------4.7 -----34 30 52.4 ----118 22 27.5 ---5N18 Fall Canyon Road
4 -------SP/04 ------10.4 ----34 32 52.1 ----118 24 02.7 ---6N07 Bouquet Canyon off shoot/Sierra Pelona Rd
5 -------RF/02 ------18.5 ----34 33 50.0 ----118 21 31.2 ---6N07 Sierra Pelona/Rowher Junction
6 -------RF/03 ------21.1 ----34 33 38.8 ----118 20 47.1--- Rowher Trail Extremely Steep Hill
7 -------RF/04 ------24.1 ----34 33 17.9 ----118 20 40.5 ---Rowher Trail
8 -------RF/05 ------27.9 ----34 32 42.2 ----118 21 04.1 ---Extremely Steep Hill
9 -------RF/06 ------33.1 ----34 31 54.0 ----118 21 56.1 ---Parking Lot/Restroom
10- -----RF/07 ------35.0 ----34 31 34.4 ----118 22 54.1 ---5N13 Rowher/ Texas Canyon Junction
11 ------RF/08 ------39.7 ----34 29 59.3 ----118 22 52.7 ---Back to Main Entrance/Sierra Highway




W.P.- WAY POINT
SP – SIERRA PELONA MAP - GOING UP
RF – ROWHER FLAT MAP - COMING DOWN

INSTEAD OF PROCEEDING TO SP/05 AND FINISHING AT SP/06, START THE RETURN RIDE FROM RF/02 (SKIP RF/01)

Bummed to be missing this one, but it probably for the best because my tires are bald again.



Go figure. Im sticking to tarmac this weekend, just a couple hundred miles of it.



Have fun guys.

Well the Beta is still in Seattle, my brain dead son, sent back the paperwork for Oregon registration without a notorize sig. so had to do it again.

I really wish I had read this earlier, as my KLR is in storage and it does not open till 8 AM in the morning.

While it is there I am having a stearing dampener, large fuel tank, hand guards, a electric fan installed.

Right now it looks like a few more weeks before it is here.

Eveybody is welcome. Just be at the 7-11 off Osbourne at 8am. Look for the mass of unwashed,loud and goofy moto-dudes and introduce yourself.

The KLX is reshod with D606's. Now I just gotta get through my 10 hour shift here at work then I'm off to meet you all at 7-11.

Here's a map of the 7 Eleven:
