Mountain Biking in Clavey River, Sonora, California USA

The easy grade is guaranteed on old railroad routes. This trail, however, is kind of tricky to reach and difficult to follow. It is perfect, if you are an adventurous type and carry a map and compass or GPS. When leaving Long Barn take the North Fork Road or the Merrill Springs Road.
