  1. SV01 is a standard box, at about 7800 feet, in the GPS route SUGARLOAF VALLEY.

  2. Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, Aug 2003:
    One box on the south side of the trail (a bearbox signpost existed in 1999 but was missing in 2003) between the trail junction that gives you two choices to Rowell Meadow and the stream crossing just west of where the trail drops to the Sugarloaf River. The campsite is in fairly tall trees, one of the few areas NOT primarily pines, at the low end of a meadow. Water is nearby and this site doesn't seem to be used by horse packers.

  3. SV01 coordinates: (see waypoint and interactive map links above)
      (lat,lon) = (36.7108000, -118.6836800) in decimal degrees, NAD83.
