Trail Description
About this trail
Trail starts between market and the hwy. Small signs on the trees show the way. Cross the road at about seven miles and leave it behind now it gets even better. A roller coaster that has everything, rocks, roots, root drops, baby heads, hard pack, soft dirt, humose, short climbs, G-outs, walls, berms, jumps. We have only been 16 miles out passed where it crosses the road again. We have been told trail goes to Nevada. The back is faster but the rollers have a different feel ( like a different trail ). Bring the Single speed!

Review: This is a really good XC trail that can be lengthed or shortened depending on how you feel. The trail goes all the way from the store up to the Grouse Ridge area so you can do some really long rides if you want. Not too technical. Just a lot of fun.

Review: This trail has a little bit of everything. For the most part the climbs are pretty easy but there are a few that require some grunt and some skills. The dirt for most of the trail is very thick but not enough to slow you down too much. Great scenery and some good rolling sections as well. I've only taken it about 15 miles out. Not sure about the last 17 and what that's like, but 30 miles for the day was enough for me! Ride it....you'll like it.

Review: Good trail to "take a break" from other tougher trails. Long gradual climb if you leave from Harmony Ridge convenience store. Note, the portapotty use requires a purchase from the store.
We rode up to the campground, and had a nice lunch overlooking the valley to the SW.
Fun downhill; the local bikers have added some nice features for your enjoyment.

Review: If you park at the White Cloud Tahoe National Forest entrance off of 20 and start there it is a sweet downhill fast singletrack towards Nevada City. I ride with a beginner and he is able to enjoy this trail just as much as I do. You ride roughly 7 miles to the 5 mile house off of 20. Once you reach the 5 mile house you will cross the road and ride for a couple miles until the trail ends. When the trail ends you must cross the road again. This section is more difficult and requires a certain level of confidence in riding capabilities compared to the first 2 sections of the trail. This section of the trail will end at the ranger station near 49. Overall this is a really fun ride. We shuttle, parking at White Cloud and the ranger station. Road the trail yesterday and it is in good condition. Have fun!

Review: Not the most technical trail, nor the best for a cardio workout. However, there is great scerenry along the way once you take trails off hwy 20.
