Bear Valley Loop Trail (Sierra Trek pre-run) Saturday July 27th: This is a club run open to anybody with a stock, high clearance 4X4. This will be a pre-run for the Sierra Trek Outer Limits run that our club is leading two weeks later in August. The purpose of the run is to evaluate trail conditions, do planning and any necessary trail maintenance in preparation for the Outer Limits Run. Typically we have done some minor pruning and we mark the trail with flagging for the Outer Limits Run.

The Bear Valley Loop Trail is rated as an easy trail. It is a combination of dirt roads, dirt trails and rock trails. All of the winch hills have easy bypasses for those who want to avoid the winch hills. The staging area for the trail is located about 20 minutes north of Truckee on Hwy 89. The trail tends to be dusty and does have some brushy areas that may need to be trimmed back. Mild cowboy pinstriping can occur.

Run details: Meet at the Truckee Shell gas station on Hwy 89, just south of I-80 (10278 CA-89, Truckee) at 8:30am on Saturday July 27th. Plan to depart at 9:00am sharp or sooner if everyone is ready to go. Staging and drivers meeting will be on Cottonwood Road just east of Hwy 89 near Little Truckee Summit (note: there are vaulted toilets on the opposite side of Hwy 89 at the Little Truckee Summit OHV/Snowmobile staging area if in need). We will stop for lunch along the trail or ideally at the Bear Valley Campground with has vaulted toilets. We should be off the trail mid to late afternoon depending on how much maintenance is needed. Ideally there will be time to play on the winch hills. This is an opportunity for anyone who needs to do their member BBQ to get that done and become a full member.

Stace and I are planning on going, NOT in the truck this year, I still have phantom bruises from being slammed around in the cab. We will be in a Jeep as nature intended!
