SOTSNF 12th Annual Membership Drive, BBQ Fundraiser, Adventure Bike & Dual Sport Ride!

Well the 2022-2023 winter was one of the best winters in the record books and the snow is still not melted out completely.  We had some of our people on Kaiser Pass last week at the entrance to the Dusy-Ershim Trail head and there is still 9′ of snow there.

We also had a very mild and cool spring and the anticipated huge snow melt never came which has kept our temperatures very mild and well below average for the season.

We have been busy all year planning, but holding off on putting on our 12th Annual Membership Drive, BBQ Fundraiser, Adventure Bike & Dual Sport Ride set for September 9,10, 2023 in Oakhurst California hosted at the Oakhurst Community Center but due to the fact we were not sure if the snow would melt out high enough for us to get the roads and trails open for you to use and enjoy we had to hold off.

Well the time has come and the snow is melted high enough for us to go forward and host another epic ride for all of you here in the Sierra National Forest and to help the Stewards of the Sierra in keeping your roads and trails open and in top shape here in the Sierra National Forest. 

If you have come to one of our events in the past we would like to see you again.  If you have never been to one of our events we would like to meet you and have you as a supporter in the future.  Working together we can keep our “Public Lands Open to the Public Not From the Public”. 

If you have already signed up for our 12th Annual Membership Drive, BBQ, Fundraiser Adventure Bike & Dual Sport Ride that’s great.  If you have not, please get signed up ASAP as this event is filling up fast and we don’t want you to miss out on the opportunity to have a great time with friends and family.

This is your chance to come out and help support the Stewards in keeping your favorite roads and trails open for you and your families enjoyment.  Please go to to get registered while there is still time.  We look forward to seeing all of you that have come before and all of you that we will be meeting for the first time.
