Lincoln - Beaver Creek Trails - Dig/Ride/Camp
Time & Location
About the Event
Dig plus riding and camping in Lincoln!
Over the last few years, we were contracted by the Lincoln Ranger District to design a ~10 mile mountain bike singletrack loop north of Lincoln. The excavation of the trail was finished just before the snow fell last year. We need one more volunteer day to put the finishing touches on it. We'll do some work on Saturday, then have a shuttle by the Lincoln RD that afternoon to ride the trail.
If you're interested, please RSVP here so we can plan carpools and # of tools
From the Lincoln Ranger District:
We will try to carpool from Pine Grove to where the trail crosses the Lincoln Ditch Road (4043) due to limited parking on the road there.
Work: We will work on the southern end of the High Roller Trail from the high point down to the jct with the Low Flow trail. The hike to the top is about 3.5 miles and the section of trail to work on is about 3 miles long. Targeting trail smoothing and touch ups on drains and turns.
What to Bring: Work wear and gloves plus bike. Camping gear and food if you want to camp.
Camping: Pine Grove is a free FS campground with designated sites and a vault toilet. No potable water though. There are also several dispersed sites along the Beaver Creek Road above the campground to the upper TH and just passed the upper TH at Reservoir Lake. There’s also some on the Park Creek Road (607) east of the Pine Grove. No shortage of camping in this area if folks wanted to stay the night.
Fun: We can try to run a shuttle up to the Upper TH if folks want to do more of a downhill ride at the end of the work day. The Low Flow trail should be cleared of downfall and snow by then at least. The northern part of High Roller still might be a little snowy. We don’t have an ideal setup for shuttling bikes though, just the back of the pickups, so might not be the best for folks with really expensive setups or worried about scratches.
