In case you missed it,
Riders have been asked to stay off of the Western States Trail at the start of the CA Loop trail in Foresthill, where the trail crosses Mosquito Ridge Road, due to a temporary construction project and a series of fallen trees. We will notify the public when the trail is again safe to access in that location. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the WSTF office.
Thank you for your cooperation,
2019 Tevis Educational Ride - NEW DATE: JULY 12 - 14 The Foresthill District of the USFS reported that as of the first week in March, there was still 16 - 20 FEET of snow at Robinson's Flat, the Day 1 staging area of the Tevis Educational Ride. Unfortunately, Robinson's Flat is unlikely to open in time for us to transport riders and their horses to the start of Day 1 on the originally planned June 22nd date. The EDUCATIONAL RIDE date has been delayed to July 12 - 14th to give riders the best experience and the opportunity to ride as many miles of the Tevis trail as possible.
The Western States Trail Foundation Executive Committee, the Tevis Ride Director, along with other key Ride personnel have had discussions over the past week to evaluate the current snow and weather impacts to the 2019 Tevis Cup Ride. Based on the snowfall water content, and comparing current conditions and forecasts to past historical records, the decision was made to postpone the 2019 ride date from July 20th to August 17, 2019.
Please be advised that we have filled the camp site at the North Lot. If you want to be put on the waiting list for a camp site at the North Lot, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org however applications should not be submitted with this request on the form. Please provide a different primary stabling selection on your Tevis Cup application.
