This ride would not be possible without the permission and support from private landowners, including the Shea and Hoechstetter families, Campbell Hawthorne Timber Management, the Parker Family, the Jackson-Grube Family, Faye Olson and Mike Maguire.
Base camp is located on Lari Shea and Harvey Hoechstetter’s private 360 acre ranch overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The views are so spectacular, you may never want to leave camp. But if you do, trails will take you past majestic virgin redwoods, across cattle ranches and through crystal clear rivers. The course will take you on challenging climbs, logging roads, single track trails and through a few rocky creek beds. There will be plenty of water in troughs, creeks and open springs.

- Salsa Verde
- Tomato Salsa
- Chile Chocolate Ganache Cake Squares
Adult libations on Saturday will feature locally brewed ‘Summer Solstice’ beer from the Anderson Valley Brewing Company.
