For those coming from the west side of the Sierras, including the San Francisco Bay Area, we think Hwy's 50 or 88 are the best (Hwy 50 being the longest, but easiest driving route) as they are better and easier routes to drive. Hwy 108, Sonora Pass, is the shortest available route (also the slowest driving as it is a demanding mountain pass), but it is closest to the northwest edge of the Rim Fire and may be significantly impacted by smoke from the fire. Regardless of the route you chose, please confirm it open without restrictions and drive safely.
Skies are clear in Mammoth and the weekend forecast is great with lots of sun and high 70 degree temps expected. We are not being impacted by smoke and don't expect to be an issue on Saturday for the ride. Thanks for joining us - we'll see you on Saturday!
