6 days to ride ... What's your best route?

So if you had 6 days to ride and camp, where would you go?

Take into consideration I'd like to be riding trails or dirt roads at least once or twice a day. I'm on an XR650L.

And honestly, if I'm not riding, I'd like to be fishing, eating, sleeping, or talking about riding. So I'm not looking for much more than places to ride.

I love Denali highway and the offshoot trails ... and Kennicott ... and Petersville ... and Buffalo Mine trails.

I'd like to do the Top of the World, but one of my riding partners has... ummm... no welcome back into the US.

Wasn't there a Best Hits thread here on this page last summer listing all the good trails? Where is that?

So how would you spend 6 days of riding?

That's the page

I'm looking at Manley Hot Springs and Circle.

Are they both dirt? Any opinions?

Six days riding and camping . It won't matter where, that's going to be fun.

If you head toward Circle be sure to stop at the Chatnika (sp) Lodge!

Ever see a ptarmigan horn? Ask.
