Meet at the Fish Hatcher at 8:15, ride at 8:30. We will ride up the south side to Call Box 29, and catch the Willow Creek trail at Parkshore Drive. We will loop around the trail arriving back at Mel's Diner on Folsom Blvd. about 10 a.m. After refreshments, we will continue ride back to the Fish Hatchery. Ride s/b about 20 miles.
The weather forecasts for this coming Wednesday are 114 (NOAA) and 110 (WeatherUnderground). The temp at 8:30 will be 84, and approximately 95 at 11 a.m.
Let’s get in the water at 8:30 and get home in time to put our toys away before it gets broiling hot.
The entrance to Willow Creek is off Folsom Blvd. with access ONLY from the southbound lanes. If you’re coming from Hwy 50, go to the stoplight at Blue Ravine (where Dos Coyotes is), make a U-turn and go back. Turn to the right before the light at Iron Point Rd.—the entrance is somewhat hidden by vegetation. State park pass or $10.
DUE TO THE EARLY LAUNCH TIME, REGISTER ON THE WEBSITE if you plan to come so others will know they’ll have company.

Driving to Chester Tues., 9/13, riding the trail to Susanville (25 miles one way) 9/14, and hiking on Thurs., 9/15. There are a lot of hiking options from which to choose.

If you are up for more bike riding, Friday, 9/16 Michael and I will drive over to Redding to spend the night. Saturday, 9/17 we are planning on riding the Sundial Bridge Trail from the bridge up to Shasta Dam and back. The ride is about 39 miles total pavement. There are some steep grades on this trail, especially as you climb to the top of Shasta Dam. We have made reservations at a Sure Stay Plus Hotel on Larkspur Lane in Redding.

Rails to Trails ride is about 3% grade, 25 miles one way from Westwood to Susanville. Mountain bikes or cross over bikes are recommended. The trail is not paved; gravel and dirt.
Hey guys, the weather gods are not doing us any favors this coming week. The foothills (Clementine, etc.) are smoked in and forecasts for Lodi and points south of Sacramento predict unpleasantly strong winds. So I’m scheduling Nimbus Flat again – in the water at 9:30. It’s likely to be rather windy, so check www.WeatherUnderground.com or your favorite site and decide whether you want to go out. As you know, the forecasts for strong winds have been incorrect more than once, so we can hope for the best. ESPECIALLY THIS WEEK, please register if you plan to participate to encourage other paddlers.
Nimbus Flat is a state park – pass or $10 – and the entrance is between Hwy 50 and the Aquatic Center. Launch site is the beach across from the Aquatic Center. Please do your best to arrive in time to be in the water at 9:30.
There are many hiking options in Mt. Lassen. One we are considering is called Hiking Brokoff Mountain Trail. Round trip is about 7.5 miles.
Not everyone will want to hike this one, but you can go to Mt. Lassen hiking and see the other hikes that are available.
