Trail 8

Get to know this 8+ mile loop trail near Pollock Pines, California. Generally considered a moderately challenging route for hikers and a beginner to intermediate mountain biking trail. This is a very popular area for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking, so you’ll likely encounter other people while exploring. Remember to respect the right-of-way for a multi-use trail!

Motherlode Trail Stewardship partners with the US Forrest Service to maintain this trail. In 2023/24 we completed a re-route that was designed in partnership with IMBA to reduce erosion and improve the user experience of the trail. This work is planned to continue throughout the year in areas impacted by the Caldor fire or post fire fuel reduction projects.
