    Current trail conditions in mendocino

    Right now things are beginning to dry out. We've been gravel grinding for two weeks with some incursions onto a few selected trails. Trails that can be ridden with not too much worry of damage are:

    1-All of Confusion Hill
    2-Gas tank
    3-Manly Gulch
    4-Steam Donkey
    5-Big Tree
    6-Parallel Action
    7-Topper
    8-Wagon trail
    9-Jackaroo trail
    10-Big River Trail to bottom of High Chutes (Closed to Woodlands from there)
    11-Motorcycle
    12-Rd 630
    13-Forest History
    14-Cookhouse
    15-Miracle Mile
    16-One Way
    17-Roads 720, 700, 409, 408
    18-Boiler
    19-Ames Lodge
    20-Pole Line
    21-Rusty's
    22-ONo!
    23-Gas Cap rode it today - Great shape!
    24-Ripper
    25-Eagle's Roost

    Trails to Avoid are:

    1-Rd 760
    2-Ride Thru Tree
    3-Gunslinger
    4-Marsh Creek from some where in the middle is closed to massive tree damage across trail.
    5-Parallel Trail at the Scales.
    6-Rd 508
    7-Widow Maker - Major slide has closed the trail
    8-Orchard - bridge is out
    9-High Chutes
    10-Dry Dock
    11-Shithole -but it's always sh*tty (great if you love Sh*tty!)
    12-Endo

    Just to name a few.

    Consider sending a postcard on March 15th (Ides of March - et tu Brute) to the Orange Dude in the White House about how you feel regarding shameful appointments with those who wish to dismantle their respective agencies ie: EPA, Department of Education, Obama Care (Paul Ryan left holding the bag here) Not sure Rick Perry will want to dismantle the Dept. of Energy once he finds out what they actually do!.

    I might be going to Mendocino this April for the first time to mountain bike. Which trails would you recommend that can make for a great 10-20 mile loop?

    You'll enjoy the riding for the great extent of single track we have here. First off, get yourself a copy of the guide book "Mountain Biking the Mendocino Coast and Beyond" as there are a number of loops to choose from. Maps will get you lost or severely confused as there is no signage at trailheads or intersections. GPS devices are sketchy at best with up to 20% signal lose.

    One loop to consider:

    Page 32 - Double Loop is an all-time local favorite ride with 16 miles and approx. 2,800' of elevation gain with two great downhill sections, Manly Gulch and Big Tree. These will give you a fast fun ride.

    Hope this is helpful.
