I am talking about the good dirt road shown on my maps connecting to 108/Pickle Meadows. From the north, coming off of 395, take the left at the first fork and continuing south across Lost Canon Creek and on into the trees. As I noted, I have never seen the piece between the closure coming from the north and from Pickle Meadows to the south. If I provided bad info--sorry about that.

I do have a track (we call it Huntoon) west of 395 that starts just north of the Buckeye road and comes out on the little Walker road. There are no gates coming from the Bridgeport end but you go out a typical barbed wire gate that has a sign on the road side.

There is also a trail from the back of the marine base (just ride thru the guard gate and point to the forest) with no gates or signs that comes on the Mill creek road.
You have track south of 108 west of 395 it was on your SMTS North Nov 08 gpx file. Looked like a great track but was gated. It's still on gpsXchange.com for download. The track known as Rt5 7wa goes from 108 to mono lake.

The 04-oct 07 track was the one reported closed, I personally did not inspect this but was told by riders in our group it was gated.

This may have been since the feds closed all camping area down for the winter even though it was the second week of September.

Maybe next year I will get out there and check this area out again very fun place to ride. Thanks for the tracks this area for sure needs to be rode more to keep it up and the overgrowth down.

There are two parallel trails; Mill and Lost (also shown as Emigrant on some maps).

There is also a single track connecting Summit Meadow and the top of Mill.

There is also a nice loop using two branches of the top of lost and an old log skid that we cut open a few years ago.
Did that loop a couple times this summer...even shot the shit about those trails with a riding marine, he said he would ride them to and from the base a few times a month for work duty. it gets use...its that darn sticker on the bottom of mill canyon that causes issues...

First I always ride it south to north but there is a very steep soft switch-back that way.
I haven't been on it in a few years but there were no signs or gates on the south end. Where you come out on Little Walker road, there have always been two wire cow gates no locks. It goes thru several Aspen groves so I am sure by now down trees need cutting.

Nice loop is from Topaz to Mammoth on east side of 395 and back on west side.

First, did you have GPS? post track on Layin' down tracks. If not GET one.
At first I thought you could be talking about Swauger Canyon that goes back to 395. But now I think, it is old trail that FS closed years ago, had closed sign but it was very old and probably gone now. I think Deep Creek, not sure where it comes out I have not taken it but will next spring.

Looking at Deep Creek, looks like there needs to be a trail in it that cwould ome out about 1 Mi south Mt Pat. on the main road.

I see you did try Swauger just as far as I did but I think it goes thru but I would carry a hand saw.

I also did the road east of the lake that dead ends, thought I could get around lake on that side.

Yes you are talking Deep Creek. I will ask friend who rode every thing before closure and also in winter on snowmobile.
