The Beckwourth Team had permission to work on Sierra Pacific land in the Greenhorn area east of Quincy. The forest has changed since the Hammonds mapped it in the 1990s and finding the trail was a challenge. A short section of Class 1 trail was visible and several emigrant era artifacts were found including a lead bar, an oxbow key and a wagon bow staple. A forester from Sierra Pacific was with the group and indicated this section of trail would be preserved when the area was logged later in the year and it was.
Later field days were spent working up the west side of Grizzly Ridge until it got so steep it was difficult to proceed. Dick and a hardy crew made it up to Trails West Marker B-20.
Later in the summer the team moved back to the Lake Davis area and completed a section on the west side where the trail comes out from under the lake. Because of the drought they were able to verify segments that would ordinarily be underwater.
The field work moved west of Quincy later in the season and verified and extended known sections of trail. West of Bucks Lake the Beckwourth Trail for the most part closely follows the Oroville-Quincy Hwy. (State Rt. 162).
