Mr. Toads Wild Ride, Sept. 24

Hole In The Ground Trail, 9:00am:
Parking for this ride is near the Boreal Ski Resort parking lot, which is right at the Donner Summit along Interstate 80.

The Trail:
The full trail is pretty grueling on a mountain bike. It's 12 miles long with lots of big ups and downs, and comes out several miles to the West along I-80. The full ride is not recommended! Lloyd recommends riding out to the high point of the trail, which provides nice scenery and a nice downhill ride back the way you came, for about a 3-mile round trip. Going further would involve major uphill backtracking. Better to have a nice, light ride after Downieville.

Here's a trail map from "the Fish". You'll have to scroll down the left frame until you see "Hole In The Ground Trail".

For anyone getting a shuttle pick-up at the other end of the trail, this appears to be the approximate location to drive to meet your riders. If you plan to do this, talk to Lloyd for details as he's been there.

From Boreal Ridge Road, Get back on I-80 and continue West.
Go to the next exit, which is Soda Springs. About 2.5 miles.
Turn right on Donner Pass Road at end of ramp, and immediately right again on Sherritt Lane.
Exact meeting spot depends on where the trail meets the driveable road.
