Nevada City’s well known Pioneer Trail is a 30 mile singletrack ride from Nevada City to Lake Spaulding. From there you can ride the little known but spectacularly fun and beautiful 8 mile loop known as the Upper Pioneer Trail. Trailbuilder Dieter King and his two friends Dan Thiem and Dan Abrams recently rode this swooping singletrack with rocky sections. “It’s a great all mountain trail with some awesome downhill singletrack,” said Dan Abrams. “This trail has something for everyone, from sweeping banked turns to technical rocky sections, with a few logs and bridges in between,” says the other Dan. Photos from their ride have been published in the current issue of Dirt Rag Magazine. Additional information about this ride can be found on Sierra Outdoor Recreation’s website.
