A phenominal cross country ride about 45 minutes north of Auburn. Awesome views, fast hairy buffed singletrack which makes you drool. A local favorite in the winter when the snow closes the higher trails.
The Bikemover crossing a cool bridge about 1 Mile before the trailhead.
Jeff near the beginning of the singletrack on the Rim Trail (an old flume which was used to divert water for the gold mining at Malicoff Diggings) . This is right after some a nice short switchback climb.
Steve (Big Boulder) and Jim (Jilm) taking off on the Rim Trail. Buffed Singletrack goodness! This was the view we had of them most of the day... when we saw them at all. I've fattened up and slowed down this last month.
Joseph and Jeff cruising off.
The Rim trail has several short steep climbs, most of them are fairly short but two in particular were walked by most of our group. Singlespeeders in particular have trouble with the climbs. Here we are resting after one of them. From left to right: Ogre's Titus (on the ground), Joseph-da-Trog, Steve (Big Boulder), Patrick (Pfffffft), Jeff (Kapusta), and Jim (Jilm).
