Bullards Bar Trail 7 Ball-Dark Day Section

I rode the Bullards Bar Trail stretch along the lake past the Rebel Ridge Trail intersection but didn't attempt the stretch going up from the lake to Old Camptonville Rd. as that stretch was never cleared after the huge Dec. 2021 snowstorm. That stretch along the lake is unchanged from early spring with a dozen or so large downed trees remaining. Contacted BONC and learned they are no longer maintaining the trail and the Forest Service/Tahoe Hotshots are now the ones responsible for maintenance.

Trail in good condition and rideable all the way down except for a downed oak tree with a couple of 12" limbs that are easily carried over.
