Sierra Foothills Overlanders, Bear Lake Trip Aug 17 through 19.

3-4 night camping trip with lots of day trips from the campground. Bear lake is located between the McKinnay/Rubicon trail and Barker Pass at approximately 7500' elevation.
The plan is for an advanced party to get there Thursday August 16th and hopefully get a large dispersed campsite on the west side of the lake, the majority of the people will come in on Friday afternoon and then leave Sunday morning.

Rally Point Notes:

This is a very small lake with good fly fishing along with access to lots of 4x4 trails to explore.

Some of the places to explore; Rubicon Trail, Ellis Peak, Richardson Lake, Sourdough Hill and many more.

Comms:

High Sierra Repeater 146.805

SFO Trail 146.46

GMRS Ch 15 no tone

This is an easy trail but rocky, a light lift and off road tires are recommended. If you have a stock vehicle I can give you directions to come in another way.

Priority will be given to; Sierra Foothills Overlanders, Reno Overlanding, and Sacramento Meet-up then the rest of OLB West.
