Poverty Bar

Poverty Bar is about two miles downstream from the Francisco's Ride vet check. Due to it's position in the canyon, radio reception is poor at best.

Access is gained via gate #123 (Right side) off Foresthill Road, between Upper Clementine and Drivers Flat Road. Access is permitted during event weekends only. The road leads south through Butcher Ranch Property, Continue left at each Y intersection as you head down to the river. Coordination with the Checkpoint Crew is required due to several gates on this access road.

Poverty Bar requires VHF and UHF mobile capability with a Good Mobile, Base Station or Yagi Antenna. Must have Battery or Generator power only. Cell phone access is getting better every year.

Radio coverage is not normally planned for this location.
