Currently about 50% complete, the MC2CT will eventually be a 300+ mile trail roughly following the Mokelumne River from the river’s headwaters at the Sierra Crest down to the river’s mouth near Martinez on the Carquinez Strait.

I explored the east end of the Camanche/Pardee Reserviors trail segment, accessed via Middle Bar Road off Highway 49 near the town of Jackson. Very nice single track sections in the rugged, rolling oak-covered hills along and above the Mokelumne River, with other sections following old ranch roads near Pardee. Lots of up and down between roughly 600' and 1200' elevations, quality trail construction, good signage, occasional river access and restrooms. Stay alert for ticks and poison oak.
