Rocky, steps and ledges good....100-120miles good....prefer the dirt and singletracks.
I'll be happy with whatever you come up with

Cool! We'll take singletrack & route details to PMs (I prefer email).

Log ramp in photo is west of BV gas & east of Calaveras Dome. BV Helipad? Hmmm ...

Did you cut that BIG log that's been across 5N95 just north of the Stanislaus River, east of Beardsley Lake? YEAAA, if you did!

Up from 89. Cool. We'll have a look. I don't remember the creek crossing, but I'm sure we've done the road. We usually take the climb (just to the west of there) up to the top for the great view of the Kinneys.

Hauling your plated dirtbikes to Colorado also?!? Sounds like an EPIC ride!

Another for Lake Alpine! I'll add you to the pm for email addresses & details.

Don't know Calaveras Dome. I went down over one on the first N/S trail west of BV.

This was two logs on very obscure trail only 2 Mi south of Strawberry. If it is the one on the road going down to the river on the north side, it was gone last year. On roads like that logs are gone when the first jeeps get there in spring.

Log bridge was on old dirt Hwy 4 2 Mi down the hill from Kinney Res. No one has been across it for at least 10 years. My friends did it in the 90s with 2 guys per bike. It is not rideable.

Question, do you ever use the single track that goes west from the jeep rd that goes from Caples Lake to Strawberry thru Buck Pasture?

I'm flying east for the next week and won't be online very much. Probably only via an ipod touch w wifi when I am. I'll catch up when I'm back home again.

Later,

Lots of wild-fire smoke that day in this photo. Calaveras Dome info here.
There is a trail to the top of the dome. That's where we usually stop for lunch-on-the-trail when riding west of BV. Great views & granite to climb around on.

Its been years since I was north of Caples, but I don't remember a ST thru Buck Pasture. Hmmm... obviously I need to go check that out! Thanks for the clue.

Try to arrive by 8AM, as I hope to herd the cats out of camp at 9AM. Are you interested in gnarly dirtbike stuff, or easier trails & forest roads?

Hey Catfish

Do you have a head count so far. Looks like it's going to be a good turn out. Sounds interesting. Let me do a little finagling and see if I can join you for a day or two.

Tony

Let me know if/when you are definite, AND if you plan to camp with us in the Silver Valley CG.

I sure wish I could make this ride happen BUT I've burned 12 hours DAYS of vacation in the last month so...not this time.

That sure is a nice area.
