Ride with us through the ranchlands, meadows and historic communities of Sierra Valley in this organized tour benefiting Sierraville Fire and Rescue. Watch for hawks, yellow-headed black birds, sandhill cranes and other wildlife abundant on these headwaters of the Feather River. Both metric- and half-century routes give sweeping views over the valley from terrain that has only mild elevation gains.
The 62-mile route starts at the Sierraville firehouse heading west toward Sattley, turns north on A-23 to Beckworth, goes east for 2.5 miles on Hwy 70, then back into the center of the valley toward Loyalton, and back down historic Hwy 49 to Sierraville. The 42-mile loop turns right at Marble Hot Springs Road food stop to Loyalton (and the second food stop), where it returns to Sierraville on Hwy 49. The 30-mile route follows the gentle curves of Hwy 49 toward Loyalton and back.
Fee provides T-shirt, SAG wagons, rest stop food & drink and —
