Shuttle space is limited. Advanced reservations are highly recommended. Schedule subject to change.
A portion of the shuttle fee helps fund local medical support for locals and riders (as well as trail work performed by the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship Pro Trail Crew). We see it as worth it to maintain a safety net when all of us live and play so deep in the sierra. We hope you will support us in this worthy cause. Details here.
