I would like to get into the Sequoia region in 2014, however, all you guys are many steps up the ladder of skill for this 18 months of off-road experience 63 year old fart. If you know of some relatively noob-type single track or forest roads to share pass them on. Thanks for all the pics and vids from everyone on this board.
One day, should I live so long, I'd like to connect some DS tracks, trails, and FS roads from southern Sequoia, through Sierra, and Stanislaus National Forests for a great multi-day adventure.
Here's to 2014
Cheers from joe

I like the idea of your SSS adventure trip, a week to 10 days would be good.

Did I hear something about an "easy way" tour of some of the southern Sierras? Please tell me more, just how easy? And how slow? Would a TW200 be able to attend? And, for that matter, Coarsegoldkid, might we be able to plan a trip up to your area for some guided exploration?

But I actually came here today to ask for some info. Someone asked me a QUESTION that I think some of you might be better able to answer. It's about THIS road, which I know as 19S09, and whether or not it goes through to any, well, to anywhere really. And if it does, what sort of conditions might one encounter? Any thoughts? If you'd be so kind as to post them in the other THREAD, so the original asker can read them, that'd be great. Or put 'em here and I'll copy and paste. Either way. Thanks.

The gates were open
Perfectly cold up there, snow wasn't melting and plenty of wet dirt.
Anyone up for KOA 1/4? West side up Saturday and do some exploring Sunday....

Hate to quote/bump my own post, but anyone got any thoughts on this one? I was hoping Pcvance might know?

Just went to Keyesville for the first time. Thanks to Catfish. What a fun place. Did "just outstanding", Badger Trail, and bunch of other stuff. No snow.

PC is busy with the blow and ho's.
Thoughts? It's a road, stay off of it!
Google maps shows it dead ending.

Ready for an easy tour?

Hesaid, sure we can plan something as soon as the forest is open. Although Wrk2Surf and Chip were up high in the woods the other day. When I was last in the woods above Bass Lake about 3 weeks ago I was aboard a side x side and there was plenty of ice and snow. I need to honest though, many of regular posters on this board know the woods far better than I. Wrk2Surf, Chip, Jason to name a few. I've only been riding a knobby shod motorcycle for about 18 months so I've got plenty to learn and see in our Sierras and deserts.

Sounds good. We'll keep in touch. Your area of the forest isn't one I'm all that familiar with. We don't need remote epic single track, we're new to this ourselves. We're slow and cautious, but we're having fun. Headed up your way, I imagine we'd make a weekend out of it. I just hope that there's something to melt this year, we're too dry. But it did allow us to ride today...
