    Planning to spend a couple days in Soldier Meadows this weekend. Questions:

    Has anyone ridden the road/trail between Soldier Meadows and Paiute Meadows Ranch? On the map it says White Rock Canyon and then Paiute Creek. Any info. or a track would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    hey jack, this is a great ride that leaves right out of soldier meadows. However you should call soldiermeadows to see what their current status is because the owner sadley has passed and i understand the ranch has been sold. I'm not sure if the new owners are going to cater to duel sport riders the way they have in the past. Good luck blackrockjohn

    We use it on Mex2Can.com Last Aug it was closed as guest ranch. We made special arangements to buy gas to get to Denio Junctionn.

    I have GPS tracks of every road out there.

    Road is open from SM Ranch up over hill down to Piute Windmill but road is gated going on down Piute creek. You can only turn north past Basin Cabin to Bartlett Creek or on to Pearl Camp.
