If you’re looking to explore a new trail, the Sierra Butte Trail Stewardship has one for you in the Portola area. The newly constructed Beckwourth Peak Trail is just over 9 miles that starts at Portola City Park. Hiking, biking, and equestrian riding activities are allowed on the out-and-back trail.
The stewardship plans to expand the trip with plans to wrap the trail around Beckwourth Peak to create a longer 13-mile new trail loop and gain 1500 feet in elevation.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
