Mt. Hough Shuttles

Our Mount Hough shuttle in Quincy is new for 2018, and not only is Yuba Expeditions an official, permitted shuttle service, but our parent organization, the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship also built Mount Hough trail from scratch! Featuring 12 miles and 3,800 vertical feet of fun, fast and smooth (compared to Mills Peak and Downieville) singletrack descent, Mount Hough is a great trail for all skill levels, from kids and beginners to seasoned veterans. Mount Hough trail is the definition of the world 'flow'. By shuttling with Yuba Expeditions, you help us keep the #dirtmagic happening on Mount Hough, so come to Quincy, shuttle with Yuba and experience our most recent singletrack creation.

Mt. Hough shuttles are currently only running Fridays and Saturdays.

Contact Max at max@sierratrails.org or 1-530-559-1857 with any questions.
Details are also below.

Note: Before booking with any shuttle service, make sure they hold an official shuttle permit with the Forest Service. There are only three permitted services for Mount Hough and Mills Peak, and only two for Downieville. Using non-permitted shuttle operations can potentially shut down the fun for everyone.
