Re: Interesting

There's a road out of Porterville, CA (CA 190) that goes through Springville up into the Sierra Nevada mountains and it has switchbacks similar to that. They have signs along the road telling you how many feet above level you are. It's paved up to a little past an area called Cedar Slope and then turns into a trail. I was in Porterville on business back in 1999, in a rent car, and drove up to Camp Nelson (around 4900 ft above sea level from the 500 ft level in Porterville). Got a little queasy in the stomach from either the constant switchbacks or the quick change in altitude - not sure which. It looked like it would be an awesome trip on a motorcycle. The trail is supposed to go all the way over the mountains to Death Valley. Was wondering if anyone on here has ridden it?
