Overview

The Yana Trail system rolls along gentle hills near the Sacramento River.

Need to Know

This ride is best done in the Spring and Fall. Much of the ride is in full sun and it can get mighty hot and dusty n the summer. This route is very popular with equestrians so expect to encounter horses for the first few miles.

Description

The posted ride does not cover all of the Yana Trail; however, once you are out there it is well signed and there are numerous kiosks with maps. The trail and loops close to the start of the ride are smooth and easy. The further you go the less developed and rocker it becomes. This ride can easily be expanded by continuing on past Massacre Flat for another 8-10 miles or exploring the many loops and out and backs near the start and end of the ride. A map can be found here blm.gov/style/medialib/blm/… Be aware that there are more trails out there than the map shows.

Started out easy, turned rocky and moderately technical. Muddy at top. Easy cardio, moderately technical in spots.

Two of us rode in from the Jellys Ferry River Access parking on March 4, 2018. The trail wanders along mostly within sight of the river. It had rained recently, and in areas where there were cows, the trail was rough and muddy because of their passing. Ink Creek is passable with low water flows, but might be more difficult in times of heavy recent rainfall. We turned around north of Massacre Flat. The Oak Slough Trailhead along Jellys Ferry Road provides good access as well to this end of the trail. Mar 5, 2018
