The Bear Yuba Land Trust is hard at work creating a new trail opportunity near Bullard's Bar on the Rice's Crossing property. Currently, the project involves a ~1.5 mile trail that will start on the other side of the Bullard's dam and head south on the property along a ridge with great views.
The trail may extend further in the future, but this is an important start. There is a lot of brushwork required and conditions are challenging. See a map of planned trail below:
