    Eastern Sierra (Mammoth) Riding

    Wondering if anyone has trail suggestions for riding in the Eastern Sierra (around Mammoth). Might rent a cabin at Convict and try to find some riding. I don't mind driving a bit to get to a trailhead either. One thought was the Laurel Lakes trail -- I've done it my Jeep before and doubt the X3 would even blink an eye...

    Thanks in advance!

    Got GPS ??? Plenty of trail maps out there. I have several GPS programs, Back Country is my favorite, so far.

    Yup, got GPS. I run Gaia on my iPad with a Garmin Bluetooth GPS.

    And no, not this time of year...

    Planning a summer riding & fishing trip. I looked at Google Earth and there’s a bunch of trails north of Mammoth I’ll explore.

    My in-laws live in Bishop.. We frequently go there but want to start bringing the X3 up... I have been looking at Coyote Flats and Silver Canyon and Buttermilk's area for sure... I'm running with a TRX Magellan up front for NAV... Just curious if anybody has been on the trails and how they are?...been looking at you tube videos...see lots of street legals going up there, dont see any issues with X'3s and other SXS rolling up..

    Camp at glass creek. It’s free to dry camp and there is tons of great riding to be had straight from camp. If you camp at convict you’ll have to trailer to trails. Sherwin creek and June lake loop are great simple scenic trails. We go once a year at least for a week long trip. Last year we brought kayaks strapped them to 4 seat rzrs in our group and rode to June lake and fished the lake

    Arrive mid week if possible as it is first come first serve and the spots fill quickly

    I went with some friends last year. There are a ton of trails around there. The one that sticks in my mind was about 15 miles of all uphill, low gear, that dead ends at a lake. I don't not remember the name of it, but maybe someone does. It was spectacular.

    Laurel lakes off the sherwin creek trail. Definitely worth the rocky terrain. Perfect backdrop for a maverick of the month image once you get to the lake.
