    Downieville trails lookin good

    The Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship is preparing for the first Mountain Epic of the year, May 13th in the North Yuba River canyon. North Yuba, Halls Ranch and Fiddle Creek Ridge trails have all received extensive tread work and are ready to be ridden. www.sierratrails.org for more info. Also, 28 people showed for the Trail Daze work day on April 29. 180 hours were spent on 3rd Divide, with the focus being on installing drainage, off-sloping tread, and sectional reroutes to decrease grade. The Divide loop is now snow-free and in riding sweet. After the trail work, a trailhead sign dedication and beer drinking took place on the 1st Divide, where we toasted Cap'm at Sac Brew for his continuous support of the Downieville trail system.

    You are supposed to add things to the calender yourself. See the "Add New Event" options.

    Excellent work! Getting Downieville rideable is right up there on the noble work scale with rescuing a puppy from a burning building. Props to all of you who have put in time and energy for the upcoming season. My tires are jonesing for some D-ville dirt!

    Paging moderator

    Well I tried and put it on the calendar again and again I got a message that it won't appear til a moderator approves...whassup with that? For those of you unable to make the epic or trail daze, please at least support everyone's efforts by becoming a member of the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship or become a member and come on up!

    A huge thanks to all that helped work the trails! We really do think about it when we ride a sweet trail. And that is one of the crown jewels.
