    Is there a very long trail going north to south like the Pacific trail in nor cal?

    I remember seeing a video long time ago about a guy that lives in the mountains and has a trail that is close to his property that goes north and south for many miles. Probably north of Sacramento more inland than close to the coast.
    Out riding, leave a message

    There is a newly organized trail from around Klamath Lake to the Washington Border in Oregon. I also read an article somewhere about a push to create a California trail that would continue this Oregon trail all the way to Mexico.

    There also is a fledgling coast trail that is mostly in far northern California right now but is planned to cover the entire coast. All the long Sierra and Cascade trails in California run into wilderness and are closed to bikes.
    My mantra: Hike, Bike, Paddle, Ski

    The PCT runs from Mexico to Canada. So, that could have been it?

    Only thing that comes to mind is the El Dorado Trail. Placerville/Shingle Springs. Its more foothills than mountains though. Its also more East/West :-)

    Rails to Trail
    The Modoc Trail is an old railroad grade from Susanville to Alturas. Connect to the Oregon O&C Trail in Bly on forest roads, then to Klamath Falls.

    There is a route that circumnavigates Lassen Volcanic NP on mostly dirt roads with some single track. Another route runs from Tahoe to Shasta on forest roads.

    No all single track that I know of.

    Thx sean, that's it. But I remembered it wrong. I was hoping it was south to north. I am trying to put together a trail ride from California to Oregon.

    Are you thinking of the Ponderosa Truck Trail or Ponderosa Way? It's a 700 mile road that runs along the Sierra foothills from the Kern River in the south to the Pit River in the north. The road was built in the 30's and most of the sections have now been long abandoned. Wouldn't it be great if the entire route was rideable
    Anybody can ski the groomed
