Interesting thread and glad I came across it! I have been wanting to go to the Piutes for a while now and I down loaded 4 USFS maps. I don't know how useful they are though.

Everything I read about this place is killer single track. I am looking for another alternative since Clear Creek is still on that temporary closure BS

Here are the maps I downloaded;

This map doesn't show some of the trails I rode a few weeks ago off Erskin Creek Road. We started there and then connected to 34E31 and rode into Wolstaff Meadow.

I still recommend riding with someone who knows the area. 34E34 dead ends into Bear Trap Canyon and as far as I know, it does not go through but check with Trailtrick as he will know for sure.

The trails show up on the most current version of Garmin's Mapsource Software. After creating a route with Mapsource, you can then view the trail in Google Earth and get a 3D view of the terrain for a better perspective but this is still no substitute for a personal guide.

Thanks for the information.

Piute Single Track Video

Here is a video I shot a few weeks ago with my helmet cam. It took me a while to edit the 1 1/2 hours of video down to 7 minutes.

We started in Lake Isabella on Erskine Creek Road heading east and then a dirt road then single track for 3 hours before reaching Wolstafff Meadows. We then rode graded dirt road into Jawbone and paved road back to Isabella.

Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DEpz...=youtube_gdata

Chris Horgan of Stewards of Sequoias has another trail appreciation day December 3. Sign up at their website here:
http://www.stewardsofthesequoia.org/ Join in the fun and help with trail maintenance, then ride the trails on Sunday.

You'll gain local knowledge of the trails and an appreciation and respect they deserve. Chris is a great guy to ride with, super knowledgable on the area, and is very active polically to keep the trails open. They have spent considerable time and effort to maintain a good working relationship with the forest service people up there.

Mount up a trials tire on the rear, gear down - way down, and enjoy some of the best single track in the state. Been riding up there for years.

You'll need a street plate to access the area from Jawbone. Otherwise the entire plateau is open to greensticker bikes.

Isn't there likely to be too much snow in December? What is the average elevation of the trails?
