If you like rides that are technical, this is defenatly a ride to do. The terrain changes every 1,000 feet of climbing. Reaching the lake is a great treat.

Customer Service

Both ways is a chalenge and an excellent adventure. Great high Sierra terrain and views.

Two highlites of the ride are the view from the peak over looking Marlett Lake to the west and the Aspen grove just before Marlett Lake. Chalenging ride. About 25 miles. Intermediate to advanced.

Riding the route clockwise starting on the dirt above Caughlin Ranch) allows you to descend on the faster Boomtown side. The climb has some really rocky sections that are technically challenging. As the previous reviewer said, reaching the lake is great. Although starting the descent near Verdi really gives a feeling of accomplishment. When you ride this route, forget the car at home - Start and Finish in town. Count on 4 to 6 hours to do this ride.

Try the route clockwise starting above Caughlin Ranch. You'll have a better descent going down to Boomtown.
