If you’re talking about Rockville near Fairfield, there’s a trail map of it here in the trails section and a KML file of it at…
It’s a great place. Make sure to have two clean dollar bills per person to pay the admission machine and bring your own water because there isn’t any there. There are a wide range of trails from highly technical to pretty plain.
Our MTB club has chosen May 8-15 for a trip out there. It’ll be warm, but not too hot.
The snow should be melting soon. Does anyone want to help me establish some routes?
I know that Max Jones (father of Flume trail) has huts built along the tahoe rim trail, along the East side by Spooner Lake,for Xcountry skiing, I think they are used for biking as well.
I searched for him with no results. Do you have contact info?
It has what you want. Numerous trails, lodging and a big MTB culture.
You could shuttle the downhills, 5000′ descents. Then go over to the Lakes Basin and the South Yuba Trail.
Another option would be Tahoe. At South Lake Tahoe, you could stay in town and hit the Tahoe Rim Trail, Mr Toads Wild Ride and much more.
No single destination has what I want. Single destinations are everywhere. The idea is a trip where we travel to a [i:1ht43kbv]new [/i:1ht43kbv]destination each day like one of the hut systems, only with a hotel as the end of day destination. The journey adds a sense of adventure that you can never achieve by staying within walking distance of your home base.
The biggest issue I’m having is locating legal trails to use. There are trails all over the Eldorado Forest connecting suitable destinations, but most are not legal for bikes.
So do you want help with figuring out a ride, or do you want our opinion on your idea?
I voted "no" because I like to rough it, and do things on the cheap. Also, for a 3 day mtb trip 15-20 miles a day sounds sort of measly. My personal aim would be 30+ per day.
I want help figuring out a ride. It was 15-50 miles per day, depending on difficulty.
Out of all these users, only one person has an opinion? There must be something wrong with my question.
I carry a wrist rocket slingshot almost always and a 380 Automatic when too far away from civilization. Both are for use against people.
I carry a small cowbell on my bike for animals. As a result, I never see any.
