My buddy says the multi-use ends somewhere around Lyon's Peak. I was thinking China Wall to Lyon's Peak and back, but I think you'd start at Michigan Bluff if you wanted to try and do the entire multi-use portion. If the graph is right, it looks like around 40 miles each way from China Wall and maybe another 5mi from Michigan Bluff. Up to 90 miles with lots of switchbacks in the summer, that'd definitely be a workout, but I'd give it a go if we started early with a small group.

I think staging gas at Robinson Flat would work, or if the Truckee/Reno dudes didn't want to go through Auburn and preferred to go through Soda Springs, then we could meet at Robinson Flat Campground and do the 35-40 miles round trip from there to Lyon's Peak.

for sure interested.
No plate needed? I can get 80 miles or more with the YZ250, all depends how much gas I put on my back (plus my 3.4 gallon tank, I think it is)
If its all the way to soda springs and back 80, i'm stuck on the KLR, and that means I'll probably need some help on those switchbacks!
(haha seriously though, I have been known to do some stupid stuff on that bike (and others), so don't tempt me!)

Haha, that's funny, I was recently thinking about what kind of bikes you could get through there. Some trail club smoothed out most of the tough spots on trail 6 and I bet you could make it on a first gen.

I don't think you'd need a plated bike and was planning on riding my dirt bike.

Yeah those boxer twins are fine for jumping but if you want to lay it over in a turn you have to have a V-twin, and nothing works better in the dirt than a H-D, cuz 'murca.

You're making me nostalgic for Seppes/Com3 videos Sounds like something he'd do.

There's plenty of easy stuff to ride everywhere, and not that much difficult stuff here (compared to other states) so it kinda pisses me off that someone took it upon themselves to make Trail 6 easier.

I completely agree! Go to Sugar Pine. Trail 2 is lots of fun and very easy, just ride that. I've been meaning to contact that group and tell them they're pussies and that I hate them, but I haven't been there in a bit and can't recall the name. Remember that technical rocky climb right after the bridge? Gone. Those slabs of rock and roots that made that one switchback extra challenging? Gone. Even that rocky section on the exposed part of the ridge is mellowed out, they must have been out there like a chain gang hammering rocks. Such a dumb and pointless thing to do.
