    Looking to see if others have any recommendations for trails in Sierra Natl. Forest near Shaver Lake other than Bald Mountain.

    Looking for something similar to wheel and open camp.

    Thanks

    I know you asked where to go wheelin' over a month ago. I just thought I would throw this out there... There is a series of books by Roger Mitchell, he has written several books just for the Sierras with many different areas covered. He has a book called The High Sierra SUV Trails Volume II - The Western Slope. I have Volume 1- The East Side and INYO-MONO books. They range from a simple 1 hour ride or several day excursions. They are very detailed books and have very accurate descriptions of of the geography, difficulty of the trail, and history of the area. I have taken several of these trails in the book and they have been great! The website is www.trackandtrailpublications.com Good Luck!!!

    Check out brewer lake. It is awesome. From shaver lake head up the grade on 168 towards Huntington lake and when you see the second snow park called tamarack snow park turn right into the lot. Follow signs to brewer lake trail head. The last 80 yards of the trail are serious but a stock 4x4 can make it through the rest. There are some fun sections that are pretty rocky and tight.
    Pack your trash;)

    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    brewer lake is real nice. some areas of the trail can get real tacky and narrow. OP, looks like you have a 2nd gen tacoma its a little complicated to get around some tight turns with tree trunks on each side. its possible but a challenge. :D
