MEALS: Fruit and Drinks on the trail. Potluck Friday. Lots and lots of local restaurants just three miles away. We can watch your horses. TRAILS: 85% to 95% single track depending on distance with views of the Trinity Alps Wilderness, Mount Shasta and more. There are technical single tracks with drops offs, twists and turns and bridges, creek crossings, knee knockers and low limbs and eye jabbers. The portion of the ride that riders could be riding in the dark on the 75 will be on wider trails and roads. We will be lighting the last loop with solar lights and battery operated lights. The course will be well marked. The footing is great on most the trails. These are very moderate courses. It does not go up and down a lot, no constant elevation changes. We work hard on course design to keep you in the shade during the heat of the day.

Lots of level ditch trails. We are also working hard to get the worse of the offending verge cleared. There is natural water on the trails as well as water tanks for drinking and tubs to sponge out of. Sponging water is cooled with ice if necessary to ensure it stays cool enough to be effective. Water is available on the course every five miles or less. DIRECTIONS: Ride camp is located on Forest Service Road 34N95 off Highway 3 North of Weaverville CA. From Interstate 5 at Redding CA go west on 299 toward Eureka and Weaverville. After passing through most of Weaverville you will enter the historic district and turn right into Highway 3 North toward Yreka. Approximately 3 miles up Highway 3 Past the Airport and at the end of a sweeping turn you will turn left onto a gravel Forest Service Road 34N95.

Ride camp is less then a mile up the gravel Road. From 101 take 299 east and enter Weaverville and Highway 3 is the second left after the Court House Entry and information forms will be posted at after Jan 1st. Please check back for updates.

Just a few more days and we will see you all in Weaverville. We filled up this year and have a waiting list so please let us know if you can't make it. Some things to keep in mind...weed free hay is required at our ride camp...since certified weed free hay is difficult to impossible to find in CA Forest Service wants use to eyeball the hay and not use weedy or seedy hay please. Also FS requires us to use hay bags or hay nets. Please avoid ground feeding.

Don't tie equines directly to trees...High lining is ok. Plenty of room for portable corrals. Please be sure to clean up and bag (we will provide bags) all your manure and hay and fill in any holes made by your equine. You can leave the bags of manure and hay at your camping site. Please bring water on board with you to help us keep up with demand. There will be water trucked into camp to fill our troughs in ride camp and out on the trail. Water truck will be going non stop as always. When you arrive if you have not been to our ride before please stop at the front of ride camp and wait for parking assistance. Please let us know (as some of you already have) if you have a extra enormous rig so we can save appropriate parking for you. Pretty large rigs can fit in most of the camp but it is easier if we put the extra extra large ones up front.

No camp fires allowed...if you have a camp stove or grill you need to get a fire permit available here Check in on Friday...
