Last Known Status
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.

Kamook Staging Area: (rougher access, better camping)
1) Take Hwy 41 north about 50 miles
2) Turn left (west) on FS 6S41
3) Proceed .75 miles to the staging area.
*Note: Main entrance road for Kamook Staging Area (FS 6S41) is somewhat rough and is not recommended for long RV's. Lone Sequoia's main entrance road (FS 6S24) is a maintained gravel road that is suitable for RVs.
