Join us for our Spring Mountain Epic on the North Yuba/Halls Ranch!
Mountain Epics are free to all SBTS members* and allow us to enjoy the trails we work hard to maintain all year. It's our way of saying thanks to all of you - party style. Epics include meals, camping, group led rides, hiking, and usually a few special treats. We have 2 per year and they are always fantastic. It's basically impossible not to have a ridiculously good time with folks such as yourselves. RSVP Read More »
A showing of 19 amazing volunteers showed up and did the work of probably 40 men and women. Our crew was one of the most productive that we've ever had... probably because 90% were all seasoned Trail Daze volunteers with more than 10 Trail Daze events under their belts. We got a couple new additions including Artek, David, and Sean, who came out for his second Trail Daze ever, which was great. Quincy really rules when it comes to bringing fun, unique, talented people to the crew. The extension is looking great and we made a lot of progress. A bit more to go until it's complete, but we made a big dent in the work load. Thanks to Sarge, Greg, Dave O, David from the Hub, Henry, Wayno, Troy , Beevis, Van, Todd, Sean, Melinda, Chris, Ron, Tim, Nica, Brett + Artek. Also, shout out to the Hub who provided the food for this event. Click here for more photos of this Trail Daze event.
Well, honestly, thing just keep getting better. Mid November, rain and all, and we still had our best turn out this year for Trail Daze. 38 people! Thanks so much to those who came out, especially the new additions to the crew. We had at least 8 or 10 new SBTS volunteers this weekend. With a positive group effort, all the planned work on Empire was completed and then some. SBTS volunteers contributed 200 hours of volunteer work to this trail. Thanks again for all of your efforts. We appreciate your continued support, and hard work that you put into these trails. Click here for more photos of this event.
This was a beautiful day for trail work out in the Lakes Basin. 30 volunteers traveled from as far as 300 miles away to help out on the beautiful rocky trail that sweeps around Bear Lake. We did a lot of great work, contributing more than 150 hours of work to a trail system that hasn't had attention in quite some time. Thanks for all those who came out to volunteer their time!
You’ve gotta hand it to the Schulze’s. Even with the new addition to the family, Mia, they found the time to host a trail work day on a beautiful Memorial Day weekend. They also managed to convince about 17 of their riding buddies to give up the better part of a perfect riding day just to dig in the dirt. And to top it off, they agreed to work on a trail other than their adopted trail of 3rd Divide. Thank you Chris and Trista!! Thank you also to everyone in the group who made a HUGE effort removing the inner sough and outer berm on Empire Creek Trail, and worked to establish a 2% out-slope on the trail bed to accommodate proper water drainage. This group produced one of the most effective volunteer efforts by any group who has worked with SBTS. They finished sloughing and berming the lower-most 3,000 linear feet of Empire Creek Trail in just three hours! This group Kicks-Ass. This work day is part of a larger effort to restore Empire Creek Trail to a sustainable condition. SBTS received a small grant to remove flowing water from the trail bed. Thanks again from SBTS.

The weather cooperated and allowed us to get some much needed work done on the North Yuba Trail. 13 volunteers contributed 78 hours of work creating more sustainable switch backs, removing 2 stumps, and building 2 rock walls. Special thanks to Vaughn, Mark, Patrick, Malinda, Todd, Steve, and Metal for all your hard work. Click here for more photos
This Trail Daze was a huge success. SBTS partnered with BONC for this day of fun work in the February sun. 30 volunteers worked over 120 hours on 10 miles of trail systems in Bullards Bar. 4 to 5 years of storm damage were repaired, 2 culverts were built, 2 down trees were removed, and brush was cleared. This is not part of the stewardship’s normal territory, but all members and board agreed that this is a great place to ride or hike, and we should help take care of it. Thank you to everyone who came out, we couldn't’t have done it without you! Click here for more photos.
The air was crisp and there was hoarfrost seeping up through the ground, creating a crunching sound on the ground as you walked over it. The cold weather, however, did not deter people from coming out and working on Second Divide. 10 volunteers contributed 50 hours of work leveling the trail bed and maintaining erosion. Extra special thanks to Greg Carter and his crew for all their efforts.
This was our biggest trail day to date. Over 70 volunteers contributed over 400 hours of work to complete the Sunrise Trail, traveling from as far as Colorado. The effort was amazing and the trail was finally opened. Thank you to everyone who came out for this amazing event, we could not have done it without you. Click here to see the Flickr Photo Set
