About the event

In this single day ride we will explore Section 3 of the Norcal BDR. Blissful forested two-track awaits just outside of Bear Valley, as you meander through the deep pines before reaching the backwoods pavement of Winton Road. Heads up, Winton Road closes on Nov 1st or after the first significant snowfall. The steep descent to the Mokelumne River via Forest Route 7N08 is a highlight of this section, but be mindful this dirt road can be challenging if wet. Several picturesque riverside campgrounds can be found along Mokelumne River.  

Once you cross the river bridge, narrow and steep dilapidated pavement switchbacks take you up the other side of the canyon, topping out with an epic traverse of the Bear River Reservoir dam. Soon, the route follows Hwy 88 then continues northward on forested tracks with an optional quick out-and-back to the Leek Springs Hill Lookout Tower (7,621’). A short ride on the historic Mormon Emigrant Trail leads to even more forested dirt and the end of Section 3 on Hwy 50 in the tiny town of Kyburz.
