    Finally got out on some trails last Sunday, up off of Highway 50 and Mormon Emigrant Trail. The road was called Snow Camp Road (only of forest service maps) spent a couple hours back in there and then stopped for BBQ, Beer and Guns. What more could a red-neck want? Unfortunately I forgot the camera, I'm still waiting on a few of the other guys to share their pics. :mad:
    I was curious if anyone else has explored that area? What do you think of it?

    I did not know that, the guys I went with go up there to cut fire-wood a couple times a year, but that is in the spring. It's peculiar though, we stopped at the turn off for this road/trail and were getting our stuff together as a few deputies rolled by and stopped and asked how we were doing. They never mentioned anything about the trail closures. They just asked that we didn't head any further east on Mormon Emigrant since they were conducting a search & rescue a bit up the road.

    It was lots of fun, there were some very basic trails, more like dirt roads. And there was plenty more aggressive trails to explore if that's your taste.
