I don’t know how familiar you are with the area, but it’s in between Twain Harte and Pinecrest on HWY 108. (Above Sonora)

live in Groveland(Pine Mtn. Lake)which is about 30 min from Sonora. I will have to find that trail next time I visit them. Nice pics...

Do you know of any trails(singletrack)up near Groveland? I found some fire roads off of Hwy. 120(Hells Hollow Rd.)between Groveland and Buck Meadows years ago but would like to get back up there to find some singletrack. The fire roads I found were in the Tuolumne Forest or Stanislaus Forest.

George is that you? Do you still own a bike?? I rode with Vern, Snakebite and Max, so you know I pretty much got hammered but I rode it all(just slower). Where were all the TROGS? I am begining to think that you all have given up on cycling?

I can only speak for myself but it's been hard to ride lately. I don't know what's up with everyone else.

I don't think there is much of a TROGs anymore. I think there were 3 TROGS rides all summer and you were on at least one of the at Pinecrest (sweet sweet ride). I've seen Fred around and a little of Joseph but as for seeing more than 1 TROG on a given day??

George does all his mountain biking on the internet now. Rumour has it he showed up at dry creek on Thanksgiving and watched everyone do the turkey day ride (I was up in Sac riding with me bro).

Yeah, I showed up Thursday morning but I just wanted to visit with old faces and see how everyone's family was doing. We used to get up to 50 people on Thanksgiving mornings and this year I'd guess there were about 14 or so.

Alot of those guys are riding dirt bikes now.

It was nice to visit, even if the turkey was an hour late because of me taking the time to visit.

being ignored...... why the silent treatment? Is it because I am not a TROG?

This isn't a TROGS only thread? Infighting and little jabs about George's tatoo getting more miles on a bike than he does is much more interesting that talking about trails.

If you are going to Groveland you will pass right by RedHills. RH is a great winter ride because it sucks up rain like a sponge. It's a very rough trail with lots of steep climbs and tons of loose rocks. None of the climbs are very long but they are steep and there are almost no flat sections.

I do appreciate the info. I know about RedHills but was wondering if there was any singletrack off of 120 up near Groveland. It seems to be perfect for mountain biking... all forest and mountains. I guess I could just explore the area and post what I find next time I am up there if what I find is legal. The fire roads I found off of Hells Hollow Rd. were pretty fun but that was a long, long, long time ago.

You could go to Red Hills which is not far from Groveland. You can also ride at Dogtown which is by Coulterville.

I'm sure there are tons of places to ride up there. Local knowledge required. I know quite a bit up by Angels Camp and into Strawberry/ Pinecrest and Bear valley but only because I've met locals. Net saavy people who share up the trail info are harder to find in the hills (people are too busy riding).

about Coulterville... thanks for the info on that.

Ogre, that is what I was thinking.. local knowledge. I will explore when I am up there again, there are a lot of old logging and mining roads around there.
