    Hi, gang. If someone has an idea for a dirty route from Fairfield or the south part of Clearlake to Quincy or thereabouts, I would love to see it. Anything from single track to fire roads is fine. Some pavement is okay (the goatier the better). Thanks for your help!

    Getting across the valley without asphalt will be a challenge....

    Here's a partial option, Plumas National Forest Backcountry Discovery Trail. This shows from Poker Flat to Quincy. I'll have to do some research to find a decent route from the south/southwest to Poker Flat...

    Edit: Ahhh, here you go:

    Now, you can take mostly dirt from Fairfield to Davis: Hwy 12 east, Branscombe, Creed, 113 north, Hastings, Salem, Brown, Roben, Binghampton, Sikes, Delhi, Levee/Mace...

    Heading out to Sac/napa area mid august. Looking for an overnight (dirt/fire road/fsr) oriented ride with my son. Both are experienced, but want nothing crazy. Also will need to rent bikes.....adventure types. Can either of you provide info?? Let me know, if you ever get to Tennessee for some riding I can help. Thanks!!

    I showed YOU something new!? I think that's a first.....

    I'll be riding some of that in a month...as long as Lassen and Plumas NF's don't burn up.

    Spent all afternoon hand drawing tracks.

    Do you know if there is gas at Twain General Store off Hwy 70 along American River? This trial bypasses Quincy but not by far.

    I think you mean Feather River, and I don't know if there is gas there. Google and call.

    Just got back from Mex2Can. I have to go back to Truckee and check a couple of trails into Graeagle then heading up that way.
