During the past 18 months, trails organizations assisted the Forest Service in finally building the new trail, including Gold Country Trails Council and Bicyclists of Nevada County (BONC) by providing CCC funds, trail tools and machines, design and the physical work on the ground finishing the trail. The trail was officially opened this past month.
As designated, this trail is multi-use, open to bikes, hikers and horses. Because the trail has been marketed for this past month as a bicycle trail, many out-of-area mt. bikers have come to try it out. To curtail speed and post trail yield rules, the Forest Service approved and installed these new signs on May 24 to remind everyone that the trail is shared by all trail users.
