Mountain Biking, Road Touring and other biking activities in Weaverville and Trinity County
Weaverville and Trinity County host some of the best single track and a fledging road racing and touring community. With our challenging trail systems and varied mountain roads Trinity County has all the potential to become the home for a Tour De France bi-athalon bicycling event that varies between the trails and the road.
Please see the information below for specifics on the Weaver Basin Trail System and the Hayfork Century.

The Weaverville Basin Trail Project began in 1986 with the completion of the Weaverville Community Plan, a document adopted by the County of Trinity to guide the future development of Weaverville, a historic gold rush town nestled in the mountains of north-west California.
Trail Work Volunteers The Weaverville Basin Trail Committee was formed in 1988 to develop a plan to preserve Weaverville's trails. This committee is made up of representatives from various trail user groups, the U.S. Forest Service, BLM, Trinity County Historical Society, County of Trinity, Weaverville/Douglas City Parks and Recreation District, groups such as the Mountain Bike Club, the Running Club and Trinity Riders, as well as interested citizens at large.
Since its inception the project has grown in scope and size. The system will eventually circumnavigate Weaverville with over 50 miles of trail through biologically diverse terrain, offering many opportunities to interpret historic mining sites, riparian zones, wetlands, old growth forests and timber harvest sites.
This a whopper of a ride! If you do any part of the long courses, you will not be talking about the lack of challenges or scenery. You will climb and meander through the rugged mountains, canyons and valleys of south central Trinity County and our rural communities of Hyampom, Coral Bottom, Wildwood and Hayfork. We have put together four great routes, which, in total, make up a figure eight course of 115 miles. Each of the four ride possiblities uses some or all of this total course to give riders, of varying abilities and distance needs, a perfect choice at the most beautiful time of the year for this event in Trinity county. The views from the high spots will give the rider cause to stop and soak in the vastness of the area and the spectacular scenery of the Trinity Alps Wilderness, Southfork Mountain, Mt Shasta, the Yolla Bolly Middle Eel Wilderness and the little known Chanchelulla Wildeness.Team Bigfoot
