I know it is only August but this event is coming up in only 3 months or so.

My Son and I went last year and had a great time. ( except when i almost rolled over a cliff!)

The weather was awesome last year....Not too hot and not too cold with great sky views at night.

I have already sent my registration in the mail and am justing counting down the days till Panamint.

I'm probably going to lead the hike up Surprise Canyon again as a SI had 5-6 vehicles last year, most had never seen the Canyon and all had a good time.

See yo out there!!

My brother in law and I threw this together for when our 4x4 club went out there this last spring. Anyone is welcome to it if it can help. ... Obviously it is somewhat of a caricature so don't depend on it for exact distances.

That's a pretty slick map. I saved it for others to reference.

Minor detail
The road from Pleasant, South to Goler, is actually called Wingate Rd. Indian Ranch Rd North from Ballarat is correct.

Our next step we would like to do is to nail down gps coordinates for trailheads to each of the trails shown and for a few other features.

no, I wheel a samurai, but our club www.4x4him.ORG has every type of rig and wheeling style you could possibly imagine. Which is why we made the map to include trails of every experience level. I've only personally run Defense Mine and Isham which is why it would be nice to find someone who has run every trail to go with.

Great reference map. You're missing a few; Jail Canyon, Jackpot Canyon, Fish Canyon, Snow Canyon, Big Four Mine . . . that I see right off. There are a few other nice "destinations" that might be good too. So much to see, so little time . . .

A few of us did a little prerunning last weekend, getting ready for Panamint Valley Days event.

We were thinging it was going to be 95 degrees but with a little rain it was very comfortable.

I'm planning on heading up this Thursday, first time to Panamint Valley, looking forward to it. Quick question, can you ride dirt bikes in the area were we camp? My son just got a new bike and is bugging me to bring it with us, but I have no idea if you can ride there.

It's not an open area. Riding would be restricted to on the dirt roads. Give a quick call to the local BLM office to see would restrictions you will need to know for Panamint Valley. If you take Trona Road from 395 you will pass a couple of OHV areas that are much better for dirt bike riding.
