Rugged, backcountry(ish) OHV route navigating through some beautiful terrain along the Sierra crest. One of few OHV trails I would recommend to ride by its own right, at least once. The trail is best ridden south to north. Expect the north facing sides to be wet and south facing sides to be dry and brutally rocky. Though it isn't a terribly long trail, there are no bailout options that don't involve a long crosscountry hike, so be prepared for the worst.

Please note that the trail is closed between November 1st to August 1st, which leaves only three months to ride. (It's doubtful that the snow reliably melts enough to ride this before August 1st anyways)
