Shuteye Peak Trail

This is an advanced trail requiring a long travel (5-7″) full suspension bike and some rock stepping and dropping skills. Near the top of the mountain there are many rocky outcroppings and formations making the area look a lot like Utah. Bring lots of water, food, sun protection, protective gear and extra clothing if thunderstorms are predicted. Start early in ...

Miami Trails

This is an area devoted to OHV use and the poor condition of the single track trails is not where I would recommend for use by mountain bikes. The fire roads in this area are fine though and can take you to some very nice places. You can get to Yosemite, Mariposa, and El Portal through these interconected fire roads. ...

This is one long adrenalin rush from top to bottom and you dare not take your thoughts off of the trail ahead. I recommend this trail to advanced riders ...

After they had done this, the goats were released and they migrated to this mountain to the west of the lake. Because they have been ...

Nelder Grove Ride

This ride begins much like the Fresno Dome ride. I like to park in the Parking lot at the Tenaya Lodge at 1122 Hwy 41 in Fish Camp, Ca. which is 14 miles north of Oakhurst at the intersection of Jackson- Big Sandy road. After leaving the parking lot, ride down to Jackson-Big Sandy Rd. and turn left (east) proceed ...

Fresno Dome Trail

This is a beautiful ride that will take you to one of the best views possible in the Yosemite area without having to climb the cable ladder like Half Dome. The weather in Fish Camp is very nice in the summer as it is at least 10* cooler than around Bass Lake. Do not forget to bring your camera and ...
