Miami Creek OHV Area

Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Alt Names Miami Creek, Miami Motorcycle Trails, Silver Knob, Pilot Creek, Sierra National Forest, Fresno River, Mariposa/Minarets Ranger District, Lone Sequoia Campground, Kamook Staging Area, Bass Lake Ranger District
Last Known Status Open
DESCRIPTION

This system of marked trails mixed with forest roads has a wide variety of challenges for any rider.

Despite obvious maintenance attempts, rain damage and some huge ruts and tree roots can make even some of the novice trails challenging. This may not be the place to bring a true beginner.

Lone Sequoia is the better of the two staging areas by far, with more trees, more privacy for each campsite, and less vandalism. The Kamook staging area is closer to the main road making it more accessible for RVs. This overall area is very scenic, with Yosemite National Forest just a few miles away.

*Note: If coming from Nevada via Hwy 120 you will have to pay a $20 toll to pass through Yosemite National Park and the pass is often closed due to weather conditions. This is a sensitive area, with Yosemite so close by. Be sure to use an FS approved end cap.
