Mt. Hough Shuttles

Our Mount Hough shuttle in Quincy is new, 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 word '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 running Friday through Monday, however if you have 5 or more people interested in shuttling midweek, arrangements can be made.

As of the week of May 13th, we are able to shuttle you to ride over 1/2 of the Mount Hough trail. Riding conditions are the best they've ever been thanks to recent trail work by SBTS crews and volunteers removing shutter bumps and totally buffing the trail out! Shuttle to the top of the final singletrack downhill timed segment of Grinduro and practice your dropbar descent bike handling skills. 

Questions?

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.
