Donner Trail Riding and Building Event – More Info

More information about BONC and FATRAC’s exciting weekend of riding, camping and traibuilding near Tahoe Donner! But first… FREE BEER! Yes, New Belgium will provide particpants tasty Fat Tire Ale.
The event includes:

Saturday, July 22nd, 10AM – BONC/FATRAC-led ride on Hole-in-the-Ground Trail.
Saturday Evening – Free camping, swimming and general campground fun at the Donner Memorial State Park.
Sunday, July 23rd, 10AM – Trail building on the new Donner Lake Rim Trail near Castle Valley. Perhaps another ride afterwards. Please bring long pants, gloves, snacks and water.

NOTE: We have a LIMITED number of free campground slots available. If you know you are camping, please let me know how many will be joining you.

ABOUT THE WEEKEND: We will help complete the latest higher elevation trail near Tahoe. We will help build a section of the forthcoming DLRT, which will be a great local riding option with gorgeous views and some fun technical granite sections. Adventuresome riders could connect this trail to Hole-in-the-Ground for an uber Sierra epic.

ABOUT THE TRAIL: The Donner Lake Rim Trail, a project of the Truckee Donner Land Trust, is almost entirely an all-volunteer effort to build a trail encircling the peaks around Donner Lake. Hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians can enjoy the stunning views of the Lake, Mount Rose and the Pacific Crest from the trail, which will be 23-miles when complete. The Land Trust has planned a special section of the trail that bypasses the PCT and will remain open to mountain bikes. Learn more here. View a map here:
