    Trip plans first week of May

    Headed down to Norcal for a week. Did a similar trip same time last year. Coming from Bend. Ride Redding, Chico Wildflower road century, Nevada City, Downieville, Graegale, Quincy, Susanville.
    Looking for some new trails to try. Need some good family rides to go along with the good stuff.
    Any info on Hidden Falls regional park (dogs allowed ?) George Town? Bullards bar trails? Snow level in Graeagle and Quincy? Anyone want to ride dville around 5.3? Will ride up 3rd and butcher to snow then back down 2nd and 1st. How about Tahoe, anything going there yet? Thanks and happy ridding.

    Georgetown is way cool - schedule a shuttle day w/ "California Expeditions"

    Snow level will be an issue - we've had some late snow storms

    A couple suggestions.

    Mt. Shasta should be really good then. If you like rougher DH, you can be shuttled.

    Redding's Snail trail was recently rebuilt into a really fun flow trail.

    Depending on your schedule. If you can be in Redding for the 4th and 5th. We are throwing a party at our recently built "Junior bike Park". We will be showing a free screening of "The Moment" a documentary about the birth of Freeriding. Then the next day if you are so inclined, race the Lemurian.

    Also, if you turn right at Redding and head to the coast. Stop for a day in Weaverville, then Lacks Creek, Then Paradise royal, then finish with a day or two in Mendicino. All amazing trail systems and very different from the other stuff you experienced in the past. Plus great camping options along the way.

    This may be a good option as many of the places he mentions could be shut down by snow.

    As far as Quincy goes you can get to Rhineheart meadow on Hough without hitting snow. Above that starts to get patchy. Should be great conditions by early May. South Park is all in perfect shape.
