Directions to base camp for Day one and start of day 2: From US Hwy 395 between Johannesburg and Red Mountain California turn north on the Trona Road. Go 4.8 miles north from Hwy 395 and turn left on a good dirt road to the camp which is a short distance off the pavement. The camp is a large open area with loads of parking and some shelter from surrounding hills. Day one is a loop ride for the 55 and the LD riders, returning to the base camp. The ride is similar but improved from day one of previous years.

Day two starts with a 25 mile loop for both the 50 and LD riders that ends back in base camp. The 50 mile riders then ride a new trail that loops back onto the Trona road only 12 miles from base camp. Because of the short and easy drive between camp and the finish, all on a good paved road, it will be an easy move. In fact, riders who prefer to move their own rigs will be able to do so either before the
ride or during the vet check and rest period. At the end of the ride, riders will be able to move their own rigs to the new base camp.

Day three will be a loop ride out of Ballarat. Day four will be a point to point for the 50 mile riders but the LD riders will be able to move camp and then do the LD loop out of the final camp at Valley Wells. Since this is also an easy drive, some riders may prefer to go back for their own rigs at the end of the ride. A New Years Eve party will be held at the Valley Wells Country Club in the warm and well lit club house. The recent rains have put the trails in excellent condition and the green grass is a welcome addition. We hope you can join us.
