I was curious about this rd to Downyville. Is this a public rd? 2 track ar single track? I want to get my dad out on some easy trails that wont kill him. He's 60 and still gets a knee down in the corners on his sv1000. Where is the trailhead so I can take a look. I live in the Antelope North Highlands area(Elkhorn/I-80).

Thanks
Aaron

Greetings Aaron,

Get a Tahoe National Forrest Map as Google can mess you up. Downieville route may bel closed out at this time. Favorite Entrance is 174 and You Bet Road Up Chalk Bluff.
I good one, that is open right now, that is an easy joint>>>Take route 40 up past Weimar on Canyon Way>>>Rt on Yankee Jims>>>Left on Shirt Tail Canyon>>to Iowa Hill>>>>>East on Iowa Hill rd>>>>>Rt on Finney Mill or Left on Elliot Ranch Depending on the Snow Level (Elliot goes from 4-5k) Then connect to Forrest Hill Divide Rd and take Baker's Ranch Down to Michigan Bluff down to Gorman Ranch Rd>>>>>Takes you to Mosquito and then head home for a short 90 mile loop out of Auburn.

Best Wishes and Be Ready for Everything
Peace,
Ricky

Rick,
I would be very interested in tagging along sometime if you were willing... Sounds like a great ride. I used to live up in South Tahoe and have been thinking about getting back to that area to ride.

Got Sand in My Pants (LOL)

Greetings Dave,
Sorry for not replying earlier, must have missed the notification.
I'm going through a divorce and my bike is neglected. Hasn't moved since May 09. From a guy who was riding at least 2x a month, at least. When I get the sand out, I'll post a ride.
BTW, I don't do single track with a KLR>>>Strickly "High Speed Hiking," quote from Tumbleweed.
