Ponderosa Trail - Chico ?

Recommended Posts

i'm headed up to chico for the weekend with a friend, and his girl. we're saddled up on 2 DRZ's and a XT225, we're looking for an relatively mellow, scenic ride. i found a jeep trial, the Ponderosa Trial, on the web . has anyone ridden this trial and/or know how to get to the trail head? if another trail/dual sport ride in the chico area comes to mind, please do share.

Hey Bro,

This may fall into the category of better late than never, If you are looking for a mellow, scenic ride, Ponderosa Way is it, it's big country. The easiest trailhead is to take Cohasset Road north to the end of the pavement, parking is hardly an issue but the TV tower area is popular. Just head North on the main road! A Plumas National Forest map would be helpful.

Deer Creek is a beautiful spot just a few miles into the ride. The road improves after Deer Creek, if you are more adventurous head towards Black Rock, very roughly 30 miles. If you make it there you will be glad you did as it's an EPIC spot.

Let me know how you like the ride... :awww::thumbsup::devil:
