James Town HD sounds good to me, but I'm gonna rely on my brother since he has more tracks than I. I think higher up may be good too to get out of the heat.

Jamestown HD is a go, as far as routes go, isnt there a bunch of riding up around Twain Harte, anyone familiar with the area, I got a gps but it has been my experience around here that what Delorme calls "roads/trails" and what I call "roads/trails" are two entirely different things.(lots of gates in CA) ..but maybe someone in the area knows something up Sonora pass way, that might be cooler and yet not still snowed in...How about 9:00am sat?

There are some dirt roads up there, but I am not that familiar with them. It has been awhile since I have been up there. I don't mind exploring. I think there may be some areas to stay away from because of tweakers?

Hey Mr. B, did you want to meet in Snelling to ride up to Jamestown HD?

most of the tweekers in tuolumne county wont mess with you if are not alone, even then it is rare. It is much more likely to have them steal your bike while you are taking a piss.

There are plenty of dirt roads but i think the best for your group would be italian bar rd from columbia to twain harte. All dirt road.

if you are thinking about going up 108, take the beardsly turn off and there are miles of dirt roads behind the lake that are open. Cross the dam and wind up the other side and you will be riding for the next few days.

You can ride from Columbia to Beardsly without touching pavement. Cross the dam and come out at Dorrington or Avery.
Herring creek res. above Pinecrest has some good areas if the gate is open.
As for tweakers, I am sure they are up there, but I never see them and I ride up there all the time. Juniper looks like a ghost town as a lot of the houses appear empty.
If you guys need a guide, I would be happy to squire you around.

Well that sounds like a one hell of a GREAT offer !
I'd like to take You up on that, if the other guys agree, whether it's this Saturday or some other time. Do You have an idea on total mileage for the Columbia to Dorrington/Avery route ? Thanks !!!
