Just south of Pinecrest Lake and the Dodge Ridge Ski Area, you'll find a network of roads hosting a mix of off-road trails and old logging routes. This trail runs along the physical Dodge Ridge and offers excellent views of the surrounding mountains as you travel along the top of the ridge. There is one distinguishable dispersed campsite along this trail. Campsites can generally be hard to come by in this area. The hardest part is passing through a fallen tree towards the beginning of the trail. This could be problematic for wide vehicles. Downed trees are very common in the Sierras due to logging, beetle kill, and fires. Trees are often only cleared as wide as tire tracks, so carrying your own chain saw would not be a bad idea in this area. The Moderate rating is also due to more rocky areas of the trail as you are coming down off the ridge. OPEN SEASONALLY: 4/15-12/15
