    It's in the town of Portola, at the Chalet View Lodge, right at the top of their 6 hole golf course! Portola's about 5 miles East of Graegle on Hwy70. Great Lodge, great food, great little town, well worth the visit! The same goes for Quincy, all those little towns are so ice to go to and are filled with wonderful people and places to stay, eat, etc.

    FWIW I remember years ago when I first met Greg Williams and riding out there during break from CSUC. I was a Youth Intervention Counselor and met him while out riding. He knew more about up there than I did and is an amazing guy to know. Good times.

    **What'z up Willie, just in case you catch this post.

    Looks like fun, whatever it is

    Help an xc trail guy out:
    1) This is a pump track, yes?
    2) Safe to assume, that as a pump track, it makes a complete loop? (hard to tell for sure by the pic).

    Thanks.

    Haus Boss,

    Best way to make sure the Mills Peak Trail gets finished this year is for folks to come help build it. Next opportunity is the upcoming SBTS Epic on Sept 10-12. Besides lots of laughs, a killer ride and plenty of beer, we'll be working on Mills on Sunday. You can also join our trail crew just about any day of the week. http://sierratrails.org/

    Just did an out and back on the completed section of Mills, and it rocks. Very much a cross country route that can be climbed (about 3000' vert), but is also fun to descend. Decidedly NOT a Downieville Downhill/full face helmet/body armor/big hit bike sort of descent. So if you like to earn your turns, and enjoy some climbs on the descent, come check it out. Also, the pump track is just a few miles away just to round out your visit.

    There's something new up at Paradise Royale similar to this as well. Had as much fun riding it right in camp as the 14 mi section of trail.

    You may now return to regular scheduled thread.

    One way of saying "coach" or "trainer" in Spanish.
