Emigrant Trail/Grass Valley/Nevada City

I have had a couple of e-mails regarding the riding here in my area of Nevada City, CA. I apologize if I didn't write you back directly.
I live about 5 miles out of Nevada City off of North Bloomfield Road. I can ride from my property for miles and miles. As many hours as you might want to put in in a day. If I head out one way, I am in a lower elevation and ride on BLM property utilizing trails and gravel roads and end up in the area of Rock Creek Road or the Yuba River Area (can ride to Malokoff Diggins... which is a long ride... all the way to San Juan Ridge, etc.).
When I ride in a different direction, I access trails by gravel road (and a bit of paved road-1/2 mile at most) to trails that lead to Madrone Springs, Highway 20, and Tahoe National Forest. I get to Highway 20 in about 45 minutes (of nice riding) and can ride the Pioneer Trail and all the other trails that you can access from Highway 20 (including Scotts Flat Reservoir and surrounding areas).
In Grass Valley there is Empire Mine Park. Below Grass Valley off of Highway 20 towards Marysville is riding in the Spenceville Reserve area. Out of Auburn, of course, is the Western States Trail.
There are several Endurance Rides in this immediate area: Wild West, Scotts Flat, and Camp Far West. Within a short driving distance are rides like: American River Ride, Gold Country, Tahoe Rim, Ride & Tie Championship & Invitational (multi-event ride in Truckee), Tevis, and Lake Oroville Vista. In addition, the rides in the San Francisco Bay Area are easy to get to... anywhere from 2 hours to the Wine Country ride or 4 to the SASO rides in San Jose. The rides in Nevada are about equal distance to the Bay Area rides.
If anyone in this area would like to add to this... please do!!
