South Yuba Ridge Trail - Volunteers Needed!

In cooperation with the USFS, BONC is targeting an early October deadline for a grant to build the South Yuba Ridge Trail (see map). We need your help to make this happen. The USFS has asked us to round up as many volunteers as possible to help clear the trail corridor of brush so that final trail flagging can occur. Please consider joining us for one of the following dates:

Sunday, August 29, 8AM - Meet at the USFS office in Nevada City
Sunday, September 12, 8AM - Meet at the USFS office in Nevada City

If we can meet this deadline and our grant application is successful, trail construction could begin next year! Please let us know if you plan to join us by signing up today.

The trail will start off Bowman Lake Road near Grouse Ridge and extend down to just east the town of Washington. When it is done, you will be able to ride between Grouse Ridge and Purdon Xing on ~30 miles of singletrack above and near the South Yuba River.
