    Looks solid, best time to ride Tamarancho is weekday days and afternoons if possible.

    I picked the good stuff by China Camp after work today instead of tamarancho, those trails were also amazing


    I'd bet 100 Plinys that it is packed out at Tamarancho tomorrow...

    I am sometimes surprised to find 1 or 2 people on a perfect day. Just makes it more awesome!

    There was the Tamarancho 1K race today (Saturday). And they (100+) were going counter-clockwise. I wasn't ;^(

    Hero dirt for sure.

    We had 40 kids max, Drake/Redwood teams. I don't know why the event is run counter-clockwise, been that way every year. Started at 10AM, over at 1PM. Agree on the conditions, perfect, get out there.

    Hey rglsr,

    Kids were nice and had great manners. Can you drop a post here next time they race?

    Thanks!

    My kid rode all of Tamarancho yesterday as part of a bigger loop. His description of the trail conditions: "It was epic." I will be out there next weekend.

    It was awesome Johnny B.
    But some local D-bag vandalized it, as you may already know, and now it's just the frame.
    I hope one day it can be the way it was.
    Love the Park bike work clamp addition though.
    Keep ridin all!

    The trails are 99% dry, well past hero dirt IMHO.
