“Potters Point Trails and the North West lake level trails of Orovile
— MTB Project Staff
This is a great cross country type out and back ride on bobcat cut "singletrack". It is smooth, wide, and easy. There are over 70 miles of trail in this area and this is a great ride to learn about the area. This ride has all of the potters point loops that are on the North West side of the lake. These trails are well maintained and best ridden in the Spring and Fall.
Need to Know
Lock your car and hide your valuables. It's Oroville so there is a better than average chance of your car getting broken into.
This is a smooth out and back that incorporates all of the North West lake side loops. For less climbing, avoid the loops. More climbing? Do the loops twice, they ride well in both directions. This ride is appropriate an appropriate introduction to singletrack for new riders while still being fun for advanced riders at speed.
History & Background
The equestrian community has historically seen these as "Their" trails. Be nicer than would reasonably be expected to help improve trail relations. Chances are you won't see anyone after the first few miles.
