Ron has been exploring the Sierra Buttes region since his dad first took him fishing on Gold Lake when he was 10 years old. Every year, the family vacation included a visit to this exciting area. The visits continued even after he got married (to Melinda), bought a house in Marin, and pursued a long-term corporate career in the publishing business.
In 2005, he made the move Plumas County, built a house in Clio, joined the local Volunteer Fire Department as an EMT/Firefighter and began devoting more time to his favorite trails in the greater Sierra Buttes area. Mountain Biking, climbing, hiking, a few ski trips and the odd Moto adventure keep him busy enjoying the trails.
As an Advisory Board Member he is involved in mapping, trail building, advocacy, working with trail volunteers, writing the occasional grant and generally loving the fabulous trails in the Plumas and Tahoe National Forest.
