Bass Lake?

Yes, I searched.

Does anyone have anything around the Bass Lake area?

Thanks

Ask over on the D37 message board, the Orange County dualies or Larry Langley used to put on the Hi Sierra 25 there. Also the SMTS passes through (see GPSXchange) also the Pacific Crest Quest (search AdvRider) passes through there. The forest may have a map of the Miame trail system north of Oakhurst.

Nev er been there before and we are staying with friends at their home on the lake.
Don't want to hang out on a deck all the time.
I assume it's all 'street-legal' only up there?

Thanks for all the input. Any maps you guys recommend?

Thanks again.

Went thru the area on my VFR on the way out of Yosemite. South of Bass Lake the road gets rougher. Wish I had a Uly!



Coolest road was the climb out of Powerhouse One.

Miami OHV area is green sticker and street legal. There are some trails there that can get you, especially if you are riding a big bike. Gaggs camp is also green sticker and street legal. I would go to the NF website to get a map of the legal green sticker routes to avoid a ticket.

this might have to be filtered down to 500 points depending on the gps. Real nice area
i cant remember what the deal is with fuel but it could be a cluster@#@#. Somewhere in there there is a place with a 1920s style pump that may or may not be open

I guess it does show only 120 miles.
I doubt there is any approved gas above Oakhurst.

we stayed in Oakhurst (10 miles south of the start), Days Inn ($140) and everything else is expensive because of prximity to Yosemite. i don't know the name of the samll old style place that the Dualies used for ride headquarters and their BBQUE, but it was right at the start of the dirt and had RV parking.

Jone's store is where we gassed up for the bass lake ride. It is one of the really old pumps where they hand pump it into the glass at the top and then gravity feed it in to your tank. Really cool. Good food there too!

Sierra Sky Ranch is the name of the place where Larry staged the (now privite) BassLake250 dual sport rides.

Recently tried to stage at a forest service road off of Bass Lake road, that has been used on BL250 routes in the past, and now it is posted as a 'non-motorized zone' by the FS

Would recommend a street legal dirt bike to make decent loops in the area, as you will have to travel over pavement at times.

This is an awesome area, but I know of no clubs or anyone involved in the inventory process with the FS ... so kiss this area goodbye in another decade or so. Ride it while you can ...
