The annual Eastern Sierra ATV & UTV Jamboree will feature guided rides to historic destinations in Toiyabe National Forest on June 11-15, 2013.
The Jamboree’s six routes travel through high desert plains and forests, along creeks, streams and lakes to ridgetop views of the Sierra and Sweetwater Mountains. Destinations including Lobdell Lake (elevation 9,500 feet), an abandoned log cabin and a mine dating from the early 1900s.
The event is sponsored by the Northern Mono Chamber of Commerce under permit from the USDA Forest Service.
Each trip is led by a local ATV guide. 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 $125 per rider, which includes breakfast for three mornings, one Saturday evening dinner ticket, a T-shirt and other goodies. Additional dinner tickets cost $15 per adult, $7.50 for children 12 and under and are free for children under two.
