The Uber Carnivore
Anyone know what happened to the cool chain ring trail sign? It was a classic.
Two years ago we started at Brockway and rode east up the TRT for a few miles to where it hits the dirt road above the lava rock field. From here you are close the Mt Rose Wilderness area which is off limits. Next we reversed direction and came back to Brockway and had a quick lunch. Hopped back on TRT west to Watson lake. Took a break there and then proceed farther west to the Missing Link overlook and down towards Tahoe City. The last 3 miles to Tahoe City is super rocky, cobble stone like lava rock and not a whole lot of fun. We bolted down to the dirt road, went up a bit and took the roller coaster downhill toward the North Tahoe Community XC center. We were staying in Dollar Point, so finished there. We sent a car back to Brockway to retrieve our cars. Great ride indeed.bigboulder said:I usually ride up Western States to TRT…then go TRT to Brockway and back down…taking missing link to the bottom. This Sunday we are thinking about changing things up a bit….skipping Missing Link and going down in to Tahoe City…riding the bike trail back to the car...Or start in Tahoe city taking TRT to brockway hit missing link on the way down and bike trail to T city. or........Start at Brockway go down to missing link...over to T city and back up TRT.....which route would you take???
That is interesting. I consider Glass Mountain and the descent down TRT to Tahoe City to be superb. To each his own.Trail Punk said:Glass Mtn isn't much fun...locals avoid it. There's Way better trails down from there that end onto Jackpine Street.
I guess I just got tired of the cobblestone effect since it was my fourth day out, my ass was sore, and I was nursing a gash on my palm of my hand from a crash the first day out on Hole in the Ground. It is truly a beautiful area. I usually started my rides in that area from the North Shore Community xc area since that was close to where I was working or vacationing.memine said:That is interesting.
