4-Wheel Drive Adventures Await You in the Kaiser and Dinkey Wilderness

     Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) users will find many opportunities for off-highway enjoyment in the Sierra National Forest. Two are listed below.
     A fairly complete listing of trails is available on this Shaver Lake Times website right here. You end up on the Things to Do link. Pick the one for Off Road Vehicle Treks.
     Brewer OHV Route: Just above Shaver Lake is the Brewer OHV route, classified as easiest. This trail is great for beginners or those looking to test a new vehicle. The route is 3.5 miles long and takes about 1 hour to drive.
     Take Hwy 168 east from Shaver Lake to the Tamarack Sno Park Area. Turn east on Road 9S69 and travel approximately 3 miles, then turn left on Road 9S69. Continue on Road 9S69 for 2 miles until you reach Road 9S10 on your right. Follow Road 9S10 for 1.5 miles to you get to a gate and bulletin board.
     Bald Mountain: This popular OHV route is the only route on the district that is open year-
round. The route is accessible from the south by taking Dinkey Creek Road east from Shaver Lake and at approximately 9.5 miles turning left on Rock Creek Road (9S09).
     Go north on Rd 9S09 for 3.5 miles to start of the route. Staying right at the first two intersections will put you on the more challenging lower loop.
     Stay left for the most direct and easier route to the top of Bald Mt. To access from the north take Hwy 168 above Shaver Lake to the Tamarack Snow-Park, travel along Rd 9S09 for 3 miles to the intersection of Rd. 9S02.
     Take Rd. 9S02 south and you will come to the north trail head in less than 10 minutes. This route is known as the “easy way” to the top of Bald Mountain. Stay right at the first intersection after the trail head.
     Many high clearance trucks can reach the top going this way. Left will take you to the lower loop.

This region offers some of the finest off road trails in the Sierra Nevada.
