Going riding at Calaveras Sunday, usual starting place, wheels dirty at 7:45. Not much stopping, will roll through about 8 miles with only a few social stops, should be back to cars by 9:30.

Had a great ride, 3 of the most like minded riders, me, myself and I. We did 8.6 miles, didn't find any rangers, but did see a new sign at a weird random spot near the pad, kicker is, it has a game camera pointed at it. Did a few downhill, dropper post on Woodie is friggin` awesome.

We started, wheels dirty at exactly 7:45, and was back to the car by 9:15, temp at the start was 76, by the time we finished it was already 86, glad we finished so early.

Sharp eye 325racer! Thanks for the heads-up. I got a late start at 8:30 and looked for but didn’t see you on the trails. I did connect up with the Queen of Calavera, and I called it a (hot) day after eight miles myself.

I'm glad that was a "no drop" ride and you all enjoyed yourself :cheers:
It would be funny if a wild coyote placed a bag over that camera from the rear so it wasn't seen. It shouldn't remove it or the sign, just put blinders on it.

If you come up from the meadow and make a left heading towards the Church, there's a small single track connector. It's on that.

Lol, my carbon full rigid is named Woodie, due to the wood inlay paint job....
