Sawtooth Trail, located in Truckee, CA., is Tahoe Mountain Guides go to trail for bike tours. So, when it was discussed what trail we should maintain and adopt, it wasn’t even a question where we should go. Sawtooth! With numerous trails yielding extensive singletrack options for the beginner to advanced mountain biker, our trail work would begin along with thirty volunteers from the Tahoe/Truckee community.
Any trail cleanup day wouldn’t be complete with the first heatwave of the season. A high of 87°, all volunteers wearing long pants, long sleeved shirts, work boots and a hardhat, the shaded portions of Sawtooth shrouded in Jeffrey Pine, White Fir and Sugar Pine were a reprieve from the sun. Despite the heat, spirits were high, jokes were being told and volunteers didn’t let a little heatwave detour them from helping maintaining the trail. The fact is, we all ride Sawtooth and wanted to put our mark on improving Sawtooth.
Tahoe Mountain Guides would like to thank all the volunteers for helping buff out our beloved Sawtooth Trail. A huge thanks also goes out the Cycle Paths, Truckee Trails Foundation, USFS, Diego’s – Beyond Bueno! and Sierra Nevada. After a day of trail work there’s nothing like a burrito and a cold one with a group of new friends.
