    Central Sierra Trog Ride Sun June 27

    Pinecrest Downhill with an extra exploratory 10 miles on the way up.

    Meet: Oakdale AM/PM at 8am or Strawberry Store at 9:30-9:45 ish

    Shuttle to Gargoyles, Ride Hammel Canyon (http://www.trogspace.com/pdf/hammell_can.PDF)

    Then do the regular Pinecrest Peak Downhill
    (http://www.trogspace.com/pdf/Pincrest_pe.PDF)

    Descriptions of each trail available at Milo's Singletrack

    Lot's of miles, lots of climbing, lots of technical downhill. Bring plenty of water and food.

    The pinecrest peak map shows the start at Strawberry. We'll shuttle half way up or so and park near the start of the Hammel Canyon loop.

    From what I understand is they are meeting at the bottom of Oneidas at 11:00, and plan on riding up Oneidas, up the ST to the Rim Trail. Across the Rim to Toad's and back down to Oneidas.

    I could be wrong, but that's how I read it. They're meeting in Markleeville at 9:30 to eat breakfast. No idea how they're gonna get to Oneidas at 11, but that's what he said.

    If you guys are going, can I hitch a ride, or I could drive a person (or 2).

    Just too far to drive.

    I think we'll save that ride for an overnighter.

    Return time?

    I'm thinking about making this. What time do you usually get back into the valley?

    FP, If I go, I can pick you up.

    Well, we're going to shuttle more than the originial ride plan called for so the climb time will be cut down. We've got 6 or 7 guys going so far, I expect you'll get back to Oakdale around.... 4-5pm. If you have to rush, you can drive to the strawberry general store and leave your car there. That's the end of the ride so you can just pack up and head out right after that.

    my cell if need it....

    How did the ride go? Looking forward to your report. Checked out Milo's site and printed out a bunch of the maps. I get up that way several times a year while staying at the family cabin. I always figured there would be good riding up there. Due time to check it out. Thanks for the tip on Milo's.

    We shuttled to the top of Hammil canyon. It cut out about 5 miles of fireroad climbing from the gargolyles.

    Yeah, the Hammil canyon single track is pretty cool. IT's about 4 miles worth and it's technical in a playful way. The trail is pretty narrow and the vegetation grows in and hides the rocks, so you're always on your toes. About half way down it flattens out and you roll in and out of the meadows with a mix of loamy brown sierra singletrack. It dumps you out at the lake by Herring Creek campground.

    From there, it's an easy fireroad climb to pinecrest peak. Pinepeak trail can get really technical in spots. Loose sandy rocky at the top, loamy in the middle, tight (rip your derailer off squeezing between the rocks tight) at the bottom. Works your upper body a lot lifting the tire and bouncing off boulders. I didn't take many pictures this time but I'll post a few tonight.

    It was only a 16 mile ride, about 4-5 miles was the fireroad climb. All the rest was singletrack.

    One more thing.... if you're going to be up there, and want someone to show you around, give a holler and I bet you can get a few Trogs to meet you up there.

    There are still a couple of trails that I need to explore.... Milo's Run, and then the long loop at Strawberry, from pinecrest lake itself, you have access to the Dodge Ride Loop, Strawberry loop and the Hammel Canyon/Pinecrest peak loop.
