Oroville, Feather River Valley, Thermalito, Clay Pits SVRA
Last Known Status
This 220 acre riding area was created in the depression left from where clay was excavated to build the Lake Oroville Dam. And depression, is what you are going to feel if you drive more than 30 miles to get there. This is no vacation destination. It's a small, flat practice area, where the average 2WD car could tackle 90% of the terrain. The are a few trees and a couple of small pop-up jumps, and when we say a couple, we mean... one. Ok, we're sorry. It's a great place for the local kids, for giving ATV lessons, or for breaking in a new top end, and as riders we are greatful to for any public land we have. The area is lightly patrolled, with one hazard that is clearly marked, and no services. Riding Area Map...Directions...Nearby Riding Areas...
