Caspar Creek Crossing Trail

Mendocino Coast Cyclists latest trail is complete. The trail connects Caspar Little Lake Rd. (409) to Forest Road 600.

JDSF has mapped the new trail and I will try to get a map made soon.

From Rd 409 the trail starts near the three-mile marker look for a turn out on north side of the road with a no dumping sign. Head north on the old logging rd, take the first left turn, then stay straight at next cross rd. The trail starts across the old landing at the end of the rd. At the bottom the trail crosses a log across Caspar Creek.

This trail was not constructed for horse traffic and would need extensive hardening before it would hold up to horses.

Please tread lightly on this and all trails.

Get out and enjoy our area!

Sea Otter 2008

Mendocino Coast Cyclists had good representation at Sea Otter once again! We had the same camp as last year, and it was windy as usual, but no rain.

The Cross Country races where in a new order this year.

Beginners raced Friday and Tom Charters received first place in his category!

Saturday Sport class raced, and I got 8th place, which was my personal best for this course.

Sunday was Expert and Pros. Most of the top Pros where at a Worlds Competition so some old folks and new "up comers" got to race together! Tinker was in the top ten, Ned came in mid pack, and Point Arena's own Brian Estelle was not far behind!

Unfortunately Colin crashed during practice and was unable to race the Down Hill.

Rick and I once again tasted IMBA's beer and food. Good things are coming!

Tom did the century road tour, and we all collected as much swag as possible, the Caspar Classic race will once again have lots of goodies! We made new friends and visited with old ones.

Sea Otter was a great time once again!
