Trail Overview

Hard Pack dirt with small water crossings and mud holes the trail runs close to the Owens River so there is plenty of fishing, a small freshwater pond for summer swimming, plenty of off-grid camping spots, and a lot of side spurs. A lifted stock 2-wheel drive should have no problem crossing this trail.

The road appears to have not been traveled on for some time at the southern most point. We started in Big Pine and headed north. There is a lot of over growth, very deteriorated areas and some spots that appear to be quite muddy after rains, it was not muddy but dry and silty in those spots today. There area a few different paths to follow at about the half way point, we stayed along the canal for most of it. There is a photo of the Owens attached but we veered off to follow a little trail so we could fish. There’s plenty of water in canals but not for fishing. Overall it was a good trail but many more trails to explore so I probably won’t be back on this one.
