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.
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.
