The Dusy-Ershim OHV Route in the Kings River and Pineridge Ranger Districts of the Sierra National Forest, is actually a corridor between the Dinky Lakes Wilderness and the John Muir Wilderness. (Don't worry, you have 300 feet from center line, both directions, before you actually touch the wilderness).
It is rated most difficult...recommended for advanced drivers. Not recommended for full sized pickups, long wheel base vehicles, or for traveling alone.
Directions: Follow McKinley Grove Road to Courtright Road, and turn left to Courtright Reservoir. Cross the dam on the east side of the lake and stay on the road to the Dusy-Ershim OHV Route Sign.
CAMPING: there is no camping within 100' of lakes, streams, trails and meadows. A campfire permit is required for wood fires, charcoal fires and portable gas stoves.
For more information contact:
ASK for a Sierra National Forest visitors map, an OHV map and a Dusy-Ershim map/handout.
Good luck......and smile in spite of the bumps and drags!
