    Trinity Alps - WHOA!!

    I know, I know.... it's in NorCal, but I thought I'd ask my homies first before bothering those guys.

    I just got back from a two week vacation in far northern California (Lassen NP; Quincy; Chico; Redding; Mt. Shasta; Weed.... that whole area). It was only camping, hiking, and beer drinking. No biking.

    When I set my eyes on the Trinity Alps, I immediately fell in love. It may one day be the place for me (the towns there just aren't quite big enough for me yet.)

    Has anyone taken a bike down there? Not in the Trinity Alps wilderness, of course, but in that general area? Googling is not coming up with much, save some Weaverville area rides.

    I definitely need to explore that wondrous region by bike.

    If anyone has any feedback, please let me know. I'll be pestering the NorCal crowd (Highdell, Chum, etc.) soon. Thanks.

    Not much riding.

    Weaverville has some great stuff. Thats about it. I'm sure theres a few other little hiden gems in the whole area, but per square mile there is pretty much no biking. Its all wilderness area. There is a great trail that runs through the area, a little one called the PCT. But I've heard you can't ride bikes on it.

    But there is enough backpacking an hiking to keep someone occupied for a lifetime.

    small group of folks over in the scott valley

    There are some folks over in the scott valley that might be able to start you on the right direction. I think the bike shop is in Ft. Jones, CA. Mountain Bike | Road Bike Fort Jones, CA ( California )

    Also a family of "beavers" over on the Salmon river that might know a thing or two about the Trinity Alps area. You'll know when you meet them.


    Good luck and have fun!

    Even more so true!

    One of the best places I've been so far, and I've been to some of the most beautiful places this country has to offer (except Alaska. And New Jersey. Wait, scratch that Jersey bit.)
