OK here is the real deal we are set and the info is below: Special Thanks to Big Blue One, Dave_fry and Wylli1 for helping me get this going and to Thumper Talks Brian and Steve for there help. See ya there

Date = Sept 20th - 22 That's Friday- Sat- Sun

Time = Fri, Sat, Sun *** Note Friday I assume we will be traveling, settling in and plain just showing up and getting organized for Sat and Sun.

We want to get in the same camp area closest to the back gate; this allows entrance to the riding area. Plans are being worked out to try and get this unlocked for us that weekend. It is very important if we get this gate open that we abide by therules there. No Wheelies, Walk the bike to the gate, No Dust. The gates were shut becouse of Yahoos on bikes thgat screwed it for us. I will know by weeks end if they will unlock it. Its up to you

Red Stickers are checked as well as green stickers for being up to date (they're not kicking anyone out. Noise is being checked "They Say at staging areas" so repack all your pipes.

Sounds interesting. Obviously someone has done their homework and planning. May I suggest, in the future you clearly identify the location of the ride plainly in the text.

Are there any alternative lodging facilities available nearby?

Oh man I will be thinking of you guys!

I am stuck here "On the sand bar"! I used to ride all over the Eldorado National forest. Finished the "Fools Gold" twice as a tot back in EARLIE 70's. Great events and rides. Do they still hold those events?

I forgot what a "Hill" even looks like. WISH I COULD BE THERE!!!!

  • Amador

Posted August 07, 2002 - 11:50 AM


I will be there for sure! I love forest hill. I ride there at least 2 times a month. In my opinion, it is the best ridding in norcal. For those of you who have not been there, you are in for a treat. I will be staying in my trusty secret camping spot :)

  • Matt_Jolly

Posted August 07, 2002 - 02:05 PM


Amador is your secret spot on the gravel road past the lake? If you go straight instead of staying on the paved road to go the lake there are some good spots. There are some good camp sites out there.

If you've never been, be sure to stop by Ikeda's on the way in or out of Auburn. It's an awesome farm stand/burger joint, and they make killer pies. Just go a few blocks past the AM/PM Mini Mart intersection, it's on the frontage road on the S side of 80.

I also highly recommend Sweetpea's for breakfast. They're on the N side of 80, also on the frontage road.

Finished the "Fools Gold" twice as a tot back in EARLIE 70's. Great events and rides. Do they still hold those events?

The California Enduro Riders Association still holds the Fool's Gold, our last event was in May. We'll also be running the Training Wheels Family Enduro at Foresthill on October 13.

Start doing a rain dance now!
