  • 2020 California MUni Weekend - Yosemite

    Hey everyone, we are very excited to bring you the 2020 CA MUni Weekend! There are lots of great trails along with beautiful scenery located in Bass Lake, just an hour away from Yosemite National Park. Save the dates! We will be posting pictures of the trails so that riders can get a better understanding of what to expect. Stay tuned for specific times and more details! Looking forward to riding with you! Cheers!

    DATES:
    July 31st - August 2nd

    Feel free to share and invite your friends.

    * All Information is Subject to Change, and More Will be Updated Throughout Time. Stay Tuned for More:

    All Riders Will be Shuttled to the Top of All Trails Listed Below
    Riding Times: Meet at parking lots at 9:00am

    FRIDAY:

    Nelder Grove (Beginner):
    Take this opportunity to ride in a grove of Giant Sequoia trees. There is a fairly smooth trail that loops around this beautiful forest, and you can stop and see the trees as you go. There is an area with picnic tables too if you'd like to stop and eat there.

    Easy Street/Willow Creek (Advanced):

    Easy Street: Easy Street is a fun detour from the top of McLeod Jeep Trail to Willow Creek. It is a short, yet technical trail that links directly into Willow Creek (cuts out a very short, smooth section of it).

    Willow Creek – This trail is by far the most beautiful and scenic trail of the day. Willow Creek is a well-balanced ride, loaded with technical rock and root sections, smooth track, drops, and lines, which can be sectioned as long as riders would like. This shaded trail is surrounded by oaks and pines, dogwood and alder trees that border Willow Creek. Closer towards the end of a ride is a very technical rock garden up on the ridge with a magnificent view of Bass Lake. Fun rock gardens at the end of the trail below giant moss-covered boulders take you to the creek at the end of the ride. This trail is challenging, rewarding, and beautiful, guaranteed.

    *Optional Ride: Technical and steep terrain is on the opposite side of the creek. There will be a small amount of hiking in order to reach the top, and a short and challenging ride down.

    SATURDAY:

    007 (Beginner):
    This trail features five sections (we will determine how many sections will be ridden once the time comes), which has small technical rock sections between smooth, fast and flow segments of the trail. This trail includes many nice lines, drops, rolls, berms, and other fun areas to ride. It's a really fun trail for beginners with some technical areas.

    Mary Jane, McLeod Flat (Advanced):
    Mary Jane – This is a nice advanced trail that features some great rocky areas near the top and a fast descent on the way down. The trail leads to a huge, steep rock face that goes down to the trail into the oak forest. The trail from this point on is fun, steep, fast, and includes some technical sections. At the bottom of this trail is Willow Creek where riders will have to walk over a fallen tree to in order to get to the bottom of the Mcleod flat jeep trail.
    McLeod Flat (Jeep Trail) is an extremely technical trail with a wide variety of rocks all the way down. This is a challenging and enjoyable trail to ride with endless lines, drops, rolls, and more. Mary Jane leads to the bottom of this trail, which will require some hiking in order to reach the top. Sectioning will happen as riders make the ascent towards Willow Creek.

    SUNDAY:
    This day will be dedicated to sightseeing and casual riding on the valley floor of Yosemite National Park. There are lots of flat trails to ride, and depending on how everyone is feeling, we will determine how long we will ride. Lunch can be packed beforehand, but there are also several restaurants all around (fairly expensive). This would be a beautiful conclusion to the weekend.

                    The weather will determine what we will ride or not, so be prepared for anything.

                    HOUSING:
                    My uncle owns a B&B, less than ten minutes away from the trailheads we will ride. This is a wonderful way to support locals and to connect with other riders. This is a 2 bedroom, 3 bed, and 2 bathroom house. If multiple riders are comfortable staying here together, this is a great option. If people are also okay with sleeping on the couch and on the floor in sleeping bags, more can stay here. Website below:
