Here are the directions to get to the Barney Riley trail head.
Location: Barney Riley trail is located east of Markleeville and ends close to the Nevada state line. Access the trail from HWY 89 or Monitor Pass between HWY 4 and HWY 395. Turn North on to Loope Canyon Road, it is located 1.7 miles east from the intersection of HWY4 and HWY 89. Take Loope Canyon Road for 1.3 miles to FR 190B turn left. In about mile and a half you run into FR 310 ( our Friday Night Camp will be in this area ).
FR 310 is the trail we take to the North Fork of the Carson River.
The trail is easy to moderate.
Be prepared for weather extremes. With this whacky weather, who knows what we can get hit with. Temps have been ranging from freezing at night to mid 70’s in day.
The weather forecast can be found here. http://www.weatherforyou.com/places/us/ca/barney+riley+trail/wxn575316.html
I will either leave for the trip on Thursday or early Friday. Base camp will monitor CB channel 4.
Please contact me or Steve if you plan to go or have questions.
