Steep singletrack trails from the Pines Campground to Buck Meadows.

Description

Start at the Pines Campground which is right next to the Stanislaus US Forest Service office. From the campground, cut through campsite 6 to gain access to a steep singletrack trail that will bring you to the top of a hill. Head back down the hill on steep loose singletrack trails and then you'll get access to fun flowy singletrack.

The singletrack eventually will run into a forest service dirt road that will then bring you all the way to highway 120. Ride on highway 120 for a quarter mile until you reach Buck Meadows. I suggest doing the Buck Meadows to Tuolumne River trail after this.
