I have a few days off next week and would like to get longer rides in.

I know a lot of you have done 50+ milers in Auburn, and I'd like to know what routes you guys like that have the least amount of repetition.

I was thinking:

Up clementine, Connector, FHDL, back to Connector, down Culvert + Confluence. Then up Confluence, Culvert, back to connector, FDHL in counter clockwise, then back down Connector then down to Clementine.

That should be right around 50 miles, 7,000' vert, and ~ 5 hours moving time. If you guys have any suggestions that are more interesting I'd be up for it! Or better yet, if one of you guys want to join me, let's work something out!

kevin put together one of the only non-repetitive 50+ auburn routes that I've ever done. If you ditched mckeon ponderosa, it should get you real close to 50.

It kinda depends what bike you're on. If you bring a bike with fun geo and maybe some squish, you can start adding in other trails for maximum fun. WST/ARC/OHV. The fireroads linked above can get boring after awhile.

Had a solid ride today. Nobody was out there! It was awesome having the trails all to myself.

Ended up doing Clementine-->Connector--FHDL clockwise -->Connector--> Culvert+Confluence then back up Clementine-->Connector--> FHDL Counter-clockwise --> Connector --> Culvert+ Confluence.
