Yea, you can just start riding on up the hill if you want. I would'nt try it on any of the single tracks, its gonna be easier and safer on the fire roads. I think you can even connect with the TRT at some point, I think over by Watson lake. And dont worry about the full suspension bike, it wont make you a puss up there.

You can get almost to the to of Mt. Pluto on pavement, and a bit of fireroad in between. Makes for a nice ride.

yes you can

got this from northstar yesterday. all dirt, all the time. :)

Geoff,

You may ride your bike throughout Northstar
without purchasing a lift
ticket. Lift tickets only need to be purchased
if you intend on using
the chairlifts.

Yup. It's all national forest.

N* only holds leases to provide lift services, but the land is Tahoe National Forest. You can indeed hook up with TRT and Western States Trails on the backside by Watson Lake.
