It’s gonna happen!
Rumors of the 67th Ride’s cancellation are not true.
“I assure you that we have a good trail planned for this year and are actively moving forward. Actually, we are planning more than one route because we like to be agile the way our best horses are.”
Educational Ride – Auditors Welcome!
Chicken Hawk Campground – Michigan Bluff – July 8th – 4 pm
New for this year – we welcome non-riding auditors to attend the Saturday afternoon talks (and dinner) for $40.
And if you are willing to help shuttle riders, you get the whole package for free!
Status of the Tevis Ride 2023
The WSTF Board of Governors has been working hard to determine how to deal with this epic weather year on top of the fire damage the Western States Trail suffered last fall.
We want to take this opportunity to assure all riders, crew, and volunteers that the Tevis Ride will happen on the originally scheduled date – Saturday, July 29, 2023.
Virtual Tevis Cup 2023
Entries now open! This year’s Virtual Event starts on Wednesday, April 19th – and will run for 100 days until Sunday, July 30th, 2023* – as the riders of the Traditional Tevis Cup are finishing their own physical journeys** under the Tevis Moon!
(* natural disasters-permitting
Tevis Ride Management is keeping a close eye on the snow level and snowpack at elevation. At this point we are still planning to use the traditional trail on the published date.
As a back-up plan, we are considering an alternate start/route – similar to the start/route used in 2017.
Entries for this year’s Ed Ride (July 7th-9th) are live! The Ed Ride is aimed at riders wishing to participate in the Tevis Cup Ride in the future. This year, riders will enjoy a night ride to Michigan Bluff to eat ice cream; complete the CA Loop on Saturday, followed by speakers in the afternoon; then ride the Canyons from Robinson Flat to Chicken Hawk on Sunday. This year auditors are also welcome for the Saturday afternoon speakers.
Trailwork Update – March
The trail between the Patent Road Fire Break (westward extent of the fire) and Dardanelles Creek is now clear and in good shape.
Find out more about what got done – and come join us in the canyons in April and May.
March 5th Trail Work Day Cancelled
Due to large amounts of snow, the upcoming trail work day has been regretfully cancelled. At this point, the March 11th/12th days are also in question because the weather pattern looks like it will last another week or so. Please check the website closer to the event.
Trail Work Days – New Dates
Western States Trail Stewardship has announced five days in March and April to do dirt and rock work on the trail after the Mosquito Fire. This work will be done on either CA Loop (west of Foresthill) or in El Dorado Canyon (east of Michigan Bluff).
