Biking around be like...
Sun Jul 08 2018

The new state course removed any of the wooden features that were present on the original 16 mile trail and replaced the skinny singletrack with a machine cut ~4' wide track down the mountain. It is considered the "fast and flowy" section--quite a bit smoother overall than Butcher Ranch with a great downhill pitch. You now have to ride down an asphalt trail and cut off onto a gravel trail before getting back to the old single track. A trail & parking area reconstruction project completed in July '17. Butcher Ranch is the main trail for the classic Downieville Downhill.
