How to Steal a Ride in the Sierra Nevada

Well, I guess it’s not exactly stolen. This freakishly dry winter has left many of the lower elevations snow free. Even with the super cold temps the snow is fairly light at lower levels and over this weekend we were able to sneak in a January ride on Pinball, which should by all rights be under snow. Getting out on this trail this time of year was very cool. We were riding over giant frozen puddles, snow patches, and through occasional sections of mud. Definitely a unique ride.

  1. Pinball trail is on a ridge above Lyon’s Reservoir off of highway 108 about 10 miles up the Hill from Twain Harte. For much of the year you can access it by going down to Lyon’s Reservoir and riding from there. During the winter I believe the lake is closed to the public and you have to take a fire access road down to the lake. I can give you more detailed directions if you are interested in riding there.

  2. Hello
    Found your site trying to find places to ride near Twain Harte. This Pinball trail sounds like fun. Could you please give me more detailed directions and maybe some suggestions for single track fun around that area?
