So, the deal with this trail is that it is sick. This is a must alternate for a three run day in Downieville. Or, this is probably the best option for a single run big loop day. There are lots of terrain features packed into Pauley Creek. Rocky, shaded, flowy, creek crossings, tiny uphill enroute to more fun flow, bridges, single track, passing opportunities in a couple select places, ect...

Access Info

Get a tail map from the outfitters. Pay for shuttle and ask driver. Easy to find. Hang a right at the bottom of sunrise trail and follow butcher ranch fire road a few miles until you see trail sign on left for Pauley Creek.
