    I remember cutting my mtb teeth in the early 90s on those trails. Back in the day we'd argue with the rangers that we weren't on brown schwinns like the posted signs. Horses and hikers had exclusive rights to many trails. Epic riding tho on old skool cro-moly hardtails. How times have changed as I bomb established Nor-Cal trails on my full suspension carbon dirt skoot......

    It looks like this project turned out to be quite fortuitous. Looking at the fire map plus some things I've read on the web, Old Haul Road was a surprising effective firebreak for the CZU wildfire.
    Long live long rides

    Not MTB related but this thread brings back some memories. 40ish years ago I lived right across the street from Sam McDonald Park... in Patty Hearst's cabin in the woods. Often would just blow off grad school to go for hikes in the park. Wish I'd known about MTB back then.
