    Hey DannyG,

    I called the Kernville ranger station and the ranger actually didn't know...he said their website was down (but it wasn't for me) and that he wasn't quite sure.

    Here's the link to the Kern Plateau (Kennedy Meadows area) campgrounds and their respective details:
    http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/sequoia/recreation/campgrounds.html

    Try calling the ranger station later today @ (760) 376-3781.

    -Rich

    Hi Phil,

    I'm not quite sure about the Troy overflow, but the regular Troy campground has a 20' limit. Last year the website (link below) included Troy overflow, this year its missing. I called the ranger and asked if it was closed or something?...he said nope, it's open as of today...all the campgrounds open today, including the OHV trails. He didn't have any info for Troy overflow immediately available so I told him we'll follow up in a day or two.

    Try calling them for trailer max-length details:

    I'll try to make it. I've been riding through couple of times on the way to Death Valley.
    Good practise for my 640.
    I wonder how much gas would be by september? I had to fill up my Cagiva at 4.15 regular today. 20$ to fill up a bike?!?!?

    Hi Gregg,

    Nope, it's street legal and green sticker vehicles only.

    http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/sequoia/recreation/ohv-osv/ohv_legal.html

    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 summary="This is a content table." border=0><TBODY><TR><TD vAlign=top><TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="95%" summary="This is a content table." border=0><TBODY><TR><TD width=447>Off-Highway Vehicles (OHV)

    What Is A Legal OHV?


    If your vehicle is street-legal and carries a license, you have access to all open highways, roadways, and OHV routes within the National Forests unless they are posted "closed". If you have a vehicle which only carries an off-highway registration, commonly referred to in California as a "greensticker", you are restricted to Forest Service gravel and dirt roads on the Sequoia National Forest. Forest roads and trails pass through both public and private lands. Please respect the rights of private landowners and other posted lands.
    All vehicles that are operated on public lands must be registered with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The registration fee is $21 per vehicle, and is valid for a two-year period. The OHV fund is used for acquisition of new OHV areas, development and operation of existing OHV areas, enforcement of the rules and regulations, and protection of the natural resources.
    DMV will issue a Green or Red Sticker for off-road vehicles. Vehicles that can be operated both on- and off-highway will be given a street-legal license
