Walker, CALIF. – ATVs will participate in guided rides to scenic and historic destinations in Toiyabe National Forest, June 19 – 21, during the only ATV Jamboree to be held in the Sierra Nevada.
This is the second year that the Eastern Sierra ATV Jamboree has been held. Sponsored by the Northern Mono Chamber of Commerce, under permit from the USDA Forest Service, the Jamboree’s five routes travel thru high desert plains and forests, along creeks, streams and lakes to ridgetop views of the Sierra and Sweetwater Mountains. Scenic and historic destinations including Lobdell Lake at elevation 9500 feet, an abandoned log cabin and a mine dating from the early 1900s.
Each trip is led by a local ATV guide who is experienced at traveling the routes. There are no “technical” rides, though each ride is rated from beginner to advanced. The rides last 5 – 8 hours and range from 50 to 100 miles. Drivers must be 16 years old, though children under 16 can ride with an adult on a quad or UTV capable of carrying two riders.
The Eastern Sierra ATV Jamboree is limited to 150 riders and costs $99 per ATV, including one Saturday evening dinner ticket, t-shirt and goodies. Additional dinner tickets cost $15 per adult, $7.50 per children (12 and under) and free for children under two.
