My wife and I just drove that Mammoth to June trail in our Jeep this weekend, also added in the Mammoth trail loop for good measure. Easy trail, couple of rocky climbs that can be done with patience by most anybody though. The sand/pumice is deep in spots.
Superb riding areas here and very well marked.

chris, i think "they" are trying to keep mammoth and june lake as 1 attraction. this sign is new, and according to a ranger, it is easy except for a few sections. i rode many of that sections and with my skill level, i can do it on the 640 with company. if you've done death valley, - south pass, goler, mengel and chloride cliffs are more difficult.

dado recently bought a brand new baja 990 and got the suspension done.... he wants to ride, and has been bugging me to do the same. why not, i just finished putting a magic button on the xr400 plus a pumper carb to perk it up.

temp here in the valley was in the high 90s, only place cooler is big bear (about 80 miles from home) and sitting at 6K feet.

on our way to hesperia



where bowen meets coxey rd



jonF

high speed dirt road, but watch out for 4 wheelers and oncoming bikes









enjoying our first break in the shade



heading to big bear and meet buster



didn't take long to get buster aboard and to receive a friendly salute...hahaha








we made it to aztecas around 1pm

Sequoias

A few teaser pics...

Jordan Peak lookout tower, built 1934. It's a 3/4 mile hike up 650' which feels like 4 miles...huff and puff for me.



Nice view....Camp Nelson is at the bottom of the canyon here. We even got some sprinkles.




Found some gnarly singletrack...




And some trees...

thanks chris for adding more pics.

jim saw this huge root and we turned around to check it out



jim was about a couple of feet away and we heard a rattling sound. that was close.



weird getting in the vortex












awesome riding here in the forest with 1k ? year old trees




check out the size of that one






on one trail, a fallen tree prevented us from getting through. the trunk was about 5 foot thick....LOL clearing that.



i didn't take a lot of pics, though it's great to get out and find some riding were it wasn't too hot. at @ 6k feet, it never got to the 90s. meantime at home it was over 100.

the sequoias may not be as majestic as the sierras, redwoods and yosemite, but the proximity from home (3 hours away) is hard to beat this beautiful place.
