The 63rd Annual Western States “Tevis Cup 100 Miles One Day” Trail Ride is scheduled for July 28-29.
This ride traverses trails and roads from north of Lake Tahoe at Robbie Park to McCann Stadium in Auburn, and follows the same route for the most part as the Western States Run. It will be affecting roads and traffic on the Foresthill divide throughout the day on the 28th. As of this writing there were 155 riders registered including two from Foresthill (Bryce Hackley and Nanci Gabri)
Be aware that you may be delayed and should practice caution while driving in the following areas and be aware of equestrians on the roadways: Approximately ¼ mile of Michigan Bluff Road through ‘downtown’ Michigan Bluff, intersecting approximately ¾ mile of Gorman Ranch Road from Michigan Bluff Road to the intersection of Chicken Hawk Road; Approximately ¾ mile of Chicken Hawk Road North of Gorman Ranch Road; Approximately ¾ mile of Bath Road from the trailhead to the intersection of Foresthill Road; Approximately 1.5 miles of Foresthill Road through ‘downtown’ Foresthill from Bath Road to California Street; and Approximately ¼ mile down California Street and across Mosquito Ridge Road.
The Ride will commence at approximately 5:15 AM on Saturday, July 28th at Robie Park just east of Squaw Valley, and the last riders will finish by 5:15 AM on July 29th at the Western States Trail Staging Area near the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn.
The first riders will reach Michigan Bluff shortly after 3 PM on Saturday, and the last riders should clear Foresthill by about 10 PM.
While spectators can certainly make their way to any of the check stations everyone is encouraged to limit those to the vet check in Foresthill to avoid too much congestion in the tight confines of those stations further up the mountain. Everyone is encouraged to take up a spot on Main Street in Foresthill to watch and cheer on the riders and horses.
