Tahoeacer,

As of now, we are planning on riding Patterson on Saturday. We'd be happy to have you join us.

Let me know if you can make it.

I've got a list of honeydos I've committed to getting done Saturday otherwise I would come along ... Mt. Patterson is always worth the trip.

There is an alternate route up to Lobdell Lake. You can come in from Risue Pass. As you head east on Risue Pass, as you enter the recent burn area the road takes a sharp let heading uphill. At the apex of the left turn there is a road forking off to your right. About a mile and a half, two miles in you take the left hand road that "T"s off the one your on. Then another mile or so, in Taylor Valley, another road "T"s off to you right. Take this and it connects to FR 067, which takes you into Lobdell Lake from the south, and taking you right by the intersection with the road up to Lobdell.

You can also take FR 067 From Risue Pass. You come down to meet up with Desert Creek ad about 1.5 miles up from that junction you'll see a marked road forking off to your right, which be 067. And then there is the truly hardcore route, which is to take Risue Pass all the way out to the east side and at the dry lake take the road up to Rickey Mine. If it is still passable there was a 4x4 trail that connected from Rickey Mine over to 067.

And Tahoeacr, you will need knobs to get up to Patterson. Getting to Lobdell on street tires is no great feat, but from there on road is such that if you were in a cage it would be a rock crawler.

There is a little bit of singletrack off of that. There was a little more til the forestry closed it last month. I could show you cause that is real close to my house. I can get away for an hour no problem. Also, I have found a three trails that drop down to Genoa.

Ya and I'm not limiting myself to the Donner/US50 route... just a future goal.
There's lots of Forrest Service roads in the Dog Valley/Stampede/Henness Pass Road area up to Davis Lake area then maybe to Antelope Valley... ???

Waiting to hear back from 211 John about tomorrow. He went to San Jose yesterday and hope to hear back from him. I am all for doing a ride some where up north/west of Reno, or perhaps east of VC to Silver Srpings.

Most of Storey County is private land and lots of it is posted no tresspassing. Seems like the middle section is all blocked off.
The whole area between Lockwood and VC highlands is open via Logomarsino Canyon, and I have ridden (years ago now) from Tracy to mountains overlooking Ferntucky then south to Stagecoach then back to VC (on the flats) and then Washoe Valley. But everytime I've tried the center section of the county it is blocked. Maybe after work I'll check up USA parkway again to see how it looks. Its some pretty dry and barren country except up by VC.
The hills behind Washoe Valley have some good roads, but many are pretty rough.

Pat, I got your PM. It looks like it won't be hot. If trail closure is a problem e/o VC then Tahoe or Plumas forests would be a cool alternative.

Sand Pass

Anyone interested in heading out to Sand Pass. There are a number of glass insulators out there needing a new home....

I think we are meeting up in VC. Lets say 9:00 AM, in front of the Bucket of Blood. Goal is to find a route to Silver Springs and back.

Next weekend lets look at doing Tahoe NF, or exploring between 80 and US50. We should have a break between bow and rifle deer seasons next weekend.
