A mostly singletrack trail through the woods above North Yuba River.

Overview

Description

The Trail begins with a doubletrack (later singletrack) switchback climb for about 2 miles that is narrow in spots. You'll be nearly immediately in tree cover and remain there for the rest of the run. There are a few steep and switchback climbs.

After another mile of climbing you'll cross a wooden bridge and the trail will begin to descend. The descent is mostly smooth and well graded singletack (a few small sections of rocks or roots) that follows the contours of the mountain back down.

Once done with the trail either head back the way you came, pick up your shuttle (if you left one), or follow the fireroad downhill about a mile to the first bridge, cross that to follow the road (up hill) about 4 miles back to Downieville.
