This is how I got to Lake Hensley,
Take HWY 99 south to Chowchilla
*Exit Robertson Rd. (first main exit with
all the fast food)
*Left over the freeway head east and follow the Lake Hensley
signs 21 miles. The road makes several turns, but there are
signs to follow getting there.
*Go past the first lake entrance and the damn.
*Turn left when the road T's (Sign says Coarsgold)
*Go to SECOND entrance on left- Buck Meadows
* There is a iron ranger on your right as you enter.
* The first dirt parking on the right (after
the iron ranger) is
* On the bulletin board at the trailhead there are extra race
flyers you can
take and a posted map of the area.
* The race course is well marked with chalk arrows. It's an
and back figure 8. There are lots of other trails too.
I made a couple wrong turns getting BACK to Chowchilla after the ride.
The signs are not as clear. Take some mental return
Have a great ride , Fred
