California Foresthill Trail 6 - fact or fiction?

Recommended Posts

Heres a video of our Foresthill trip last weekend. Hit every trail there except 6, did 5 from Parker Flat clockwise. Great weekend!

The part at 3:27ish always spooks me more than any part of trail 6 (which for me is a bee-atch) …….Penalty for failure was experienced by your buddy who IMO got off lightly..

8-9-14 is the western states horse race. So if you ride trail six do it early because dead wood will be packed with people and horses by noon.

from the

Western States Board of Governors "The Tevis Cup: A Horsemen''s Journey Since 1955"

The Board of Governors of the Western States Trail Foundation (WSTF) welcomes you to an endurance riding event of distinction, recognized as one of the world''s best tests of true horsemanship.

The Tevis Cup Ride is the founding modern-day equestrian event of its kind in the world. Today, there are hundreds of endurance riding events throughout the nation and in many countries overseas that are based upon the methods and standards originally established by this event. This includes the modeling of national organizations which sanction similar endurance riding events.

The Tevis Cup attracts more people to Foresthill than the WST 100 mile Endurance Run http://www.wser.org/ that happens in June.  Trailers, support, enthusiasts................... etc.  It will be packed!

Just talked to the ranger station. She said all OHV trails will be open! Trail 6 crosses the WST but there will be no problems with riding trail 6.

Staging areas will be clear also. She said all the horsey people will be congregated closer to the town. Also said they don't usually have any issues with the OHV/Tevis cup.

I'm still into going if anyone else can go.

I would like to go but this looks like the first weekend in weeks that I may actually be able to do the upgrades to my bike. Spent all that $$$, got to get that stuff on prior to the big ride later this month.

You will ne passing by me on your way..... If you want or have the time, you can swing by the house for the exchange.... Up to you.

Not yet- sad face-

 

 There is a ride set for the end of Sept. but those dudes don't want to hit trail 6.  

 

Maybe it can be a reentry ride for Hockdog when his knee is healed.  No rest for the wicked.

 

Braap916 and I rode Georgetown last weekend and he showed me some challenging trails there. 10 has an exposed rock section that was a tire shredder and 1-4 is really fun with one super sketchy-cliffy-technical section.

Looking at NorCal/Tahoe area destinations for mid-June.

 

Red sticker bikes OK at ForestHill?  Where else up there gets gnarly narrow singletrack with a red sticker, or generally lax restrictions as long as you have a sparky?

Yes red sticker ok at Foresthill.  Prairie City, carnegie and Hollister are the only ones that have red sticker restrictions.  You don't need to ride at any of those spots anyway.  Everything else is legal as long as you have a sticker or plate and a USFS sparky.

 

When you head up this way, check the NorCal ride thread and we can show you some classic single track.

I may tag along for a June Trail 6 ride.

 

It is not the hardest trail in the world, but it is pretty fun.

 

Momentum is key in a few spots.
