Wheeler Ridge Trail

The Wheeler Ridge Trail is located north of Bishop CA.  It is quite scenic but has a short section called the Wheeler Ridge Mine Trail which is moderately challenging.  Rated at a 2+.  Beyond the challenging section, near the end of the trail is a very dangerous section which should be closed by the Forest Service.  This section is on  a narrow shelf road which is off camber and has deep, loose sand and about a 1,000 ft dropoff.  A couple of years ago Bruce and I did a dramatic recovery of a Toyota pickup from this section.
