At a Glance
Okay, okay, don’t get your knickers in a knot. Sure you might be saying, “Whoa, what’s with this Pavement?” about a quarter mile into this DH. Followed by “Is this piece of crap worth traveling to, to journey on?” Granted, the first 2.0 mi (3.2 km) is a little on the bumpy, patchy, narrow, unpainted and horribly engineered side. But that’s only to deter curious RVs. After you endure that initial section through the canyon, the asphalt stripes up, widens and smoothes to more or less average grade over miles of well-sightlined and evenly cambered sweepers. And the only traffic you’ll probably have to contend with is the weekend boaters heading to and from the lake. Sugar pines, ponderosas and white firs constitute the Scenery on most of the route, though there are some detailed rockfaces and high views as you cross and climb off the Clavey River. Once you reach the lake, you either have to backtrack or take the substandard 23.2 mi (27.1 km) run down Cherry Lake Rd (FSR 17) to mid-DH14 Moccasin – Yosemite Jct. Should you opt for FSR 17, a sheet bend or series of half-hitches should do the trick.
