Event Description

I am shooting for Saturday, 9/10. This will be subject to change depending on turnout. I would like to get as many rigs as we can, up to about 10 or so, to show our continued support of the trail. There will be trash pick up and maybe some tree clearing.

Please RSVP if you want to join in.

Here is my standard stuff regarding the trail.

NorCal FJs has adopted the Long Canyon Trail in the El Dorado National Forest and it is time to do another clean up run.
We will meet at the In-n-Out Burger in Placerville off of the Forni Road exit at 9:00 AM. I plan on leaving the parking lot by 9:15.

In the past, some people choose to camp nearby the night before. There are two campgrounds near the trail (China Flat and Silver Fork) and numerous places to set up dispersed camping. Just meet us at the trailhead at 10am.

You will need to fill out and turn in a Volunteer form before you will be allowed to participate. The form can be found at:

If you have filled one out previously, you do not need to fill out another one.

Trail information is below.

The trail is not hard. I have taken numerous first timers in stock FJs with no major consequences. Rock rails are required for the second obstacle and third obstacle if you have no lift. There are a total of three obstacles. The first two have bypasses, the third does not. There are also a couple of fairly steep climbs and an area with many 6” to 10” rocks to navigate. Again, nothing a stock FJ cannot handle.

A map of the area can be downloaded here: MAP
Placerville Ranger District Map - Side 2
Trail head coordinates are approximately:
38 45 N 120 15 W

If you are running late and miss us, getting to the trail is easy.
Continue up Hwy 50 toward Tahoe, just past Kyburz (about 30 min. from Placerville) take a right on Silverfork Road
A few miles up Silverfork Road, take a left on Long Canyon trail (dirt road)

CB on Ch 31
FRS on 7/31
HAM Frequency is 146.460 no tone. Please turn your radios to 5 watts or less once on the trail.
See Comms Info for standard group communications.

Bring a lunch, plenty of water and gloves.
Mobile phones do not work well in the trail area, except at the top.
Be prepared for changeable weather, but it will likely be warm.

Thanks for the update. I will have to figure out who to send the forms to.
