Overview

Long, scenic route crosses high desert.

Long scenic route crosses sprawling high desert from Jawbone OHV Area, climbs above 8,000 feet across the Piute Mountain Range inside Sequoia National Forest, then descends quickly to Lake Isabella. Vast areas of dispersed camping with open riding around Jawbone Station. No greensticker vehicles allowed on Jawbone Canyon Road. Although Forest Road 27S02 is open to green-sticker vehicles, we don’t recommend riding here.

Rating

Easy
Trail Ratings Defined

We found the road well graded the entire way, but be prepared for ruts and washed-out sections on steep grades. Winter snows may close the road for brief periods at higher elevations. Mud possible in spring.
