Has anyone taken the Barney Riley trail in CA?

I'm wondering if it's possible to traverse this trail on a BMW Dakar laden down with gear going north from 89 to the crossing. Any experiences on this trail on a bike? It looks to be frequented by the Jeep crowd and I'm wondering if there are any obstacles like boulders that would make it pretty tough to ride through.

I think B/R trail is closed at the bridge on 89 there is also a gate at other end near Young's crossing. There is access in the middle but you can't get out. The only roads open are going in on Loop Cyn Rd from 89 to Leviathan Rd, then down Bryant Creek Rd thru site of B/R, then down East fork of Carson to 395.

Very bad rocks on Bryant and creek crossings.

I have GPS tracks of this area posted on GPSXchange.com

Bummer. I'm looking for a nice ride around that area and a cool campsite away from people. Me and my buddy are going to ride up there next weekend from the Bay Area and I'm looking for more of a relaxed off road ride rather than crawling over rocks. We did that on our last trip on Meadow Lake Rd up in Tahoe National Forest and I'm looking more for long stretches of dirt road out to the middle of nowhere.

Mt. Patterson above Lobdell Lake but bow season has started in some places.

Wow, I was literally just looking at Lobdell lake and was thinking it looks perfect. That'll probably be my destination.

I guess what I meant do you have GPS software like Mapsource on your computer? I assume since you don't have a GPS the answer is no so pointing you to all my GPS tracks for the area won't help you.

I don't but I should be able to load GPS files into copilot. I should be able to map it myself, but here is the path I plan on taking (This link should only work on a computer)

I have very large files with many Tracks. The only practical way to use them is to open them with GPS software on PC and then pick and choose what you want to download to hand held GPS or equivalent.
