Pleasanton Ridge: Joe Steel to the courtesy phone

I spoke to Steve Quick, the park supervisor at Pleasanton Ridge last night and he mentioned that it was time for the BCTEB to bring out the trail crew to work on the Sinbad Creek trail again.

Have you ridden the trail recently? What is the condition? What kind of work are we looking at?

The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in a red zone.

yah I can take pics and I just setup a mount for my digicam on my handlebars and it gets some decent video. I might be going a bit too fast for any detail to be revealed. I will get pics for sure though.
Sweet:thumbsup: Thanks!

Hey Dan,
I think we're talking about the singletrack/multi-use trail near the north end of the park?

If so, I've only ridden the southern portion of that trail recently (skipping the northern section with the switchbacks through the poison oak) -- so I can only comment on that:

I recall that I was pleased that the trail was showing signs of recovery from the past efforts to "fix" the trail with a backhoe:rolleyes: Grass was growing in the previously widened areas, giving the trail the narrow appearance that it once had again.

The switchbacks section toward the south end that dump you onto the fire road was pretty sweet. I wouldn't expect much work there. The long straight aways toward the upper section are fairly rough and rutted (as they were before they drove the tractor through). If you were to clean that up it would be sweet.

That's what I recall -- but I wasn't really in observation mode. Hope that helps.

I've never been to Pleasanton Ridge, and I've driven by it mucho times. Would it be a good place to bring my SS?
Only if you're dumb like me ;) . I ride it on my singlespeed about half the time I ride there -- and then I curse myself. I'm riding 34:18 most of the time. Sometimes 32:16. The climb up from the staging area is painfull, as is most of the ride as you work your way north. I tend to ride the interior trails (Thermalito) as they are less steep. The return is a piece of cake though:thumbsup:

I think I've only seen one other ss there -- and the guy was running a 32:20 or something like that.

Try it out and let me know what you think.

I've been on every trail there in the past month, I dont recall any problem spots.
perhaps it would be maintenance instead of repair.

True. Hopefully not repair but last year it was somewhat torn up. We had to undo what the tractor had done.

Perhaps we should look into killing some of the PO.

When I had a SS I rode it there and it was brutal but worth it. :thumbsup:

The trail was in great condition. I rode along parts of the ridge, there are a few rough spots but otherwise I dont think it needs more work. I didn't ride on any the single track. And there was tons PO on the sides of the trails before the top gate.
A vid going from the top gate to near the bottom of the trail.
