    Summer Road trip

    Trying to figure out where I am going to go this summer. What is the best place, Brian Head, Mammoth, or some other place. Would prefer to drive and want to spend around 3 days fairly cheap.

    After spending much time on the 395 from Bishop to north of Mammoth, I now seek the lands behind the Zion Curtain.

    SW Utah has so much to offer and it's only 6 hours from SD. Check out St. George area.

    Only drawback is that you have to take cases and cases of good beer.

    Isn't that the truth!

    Summer in SW utah can wilt your spirit.

    If ya want a true mtbiking hoot of an experience, attend one of the Mountain Bike Oregon weekends in Oakridge. I don't have the link handy, but easy to find. I was there 2006 and it was a sensational value for the money. Cascades riding is superb!

    What kind of riding are you looking at doing? DH, AM, XC?

    If you like DH and AM, Brianhead is awesome. Great lift runs, great shuttle runs, and you can hit up Thunder Mountain right off of Bryce Canyon to get in some climbing at 6000ft of elevation +.

    You can camp at the KOA in Panguitch, or I'm sure there are other places.

    Doesn't get too hot up at Brianhead, but Thunder Mountain may be warm.

    There's also Kernville (Cannel Plunge, Keyesville, etc.) on the way to Mammoth. Lots of river side camping for pretty cheap. Mostly shuttle runs (self or from I think Kern River Adventures?).

    If you can extend the trip to 4 or 5 days then you can hit Tahoe, Downieville, and Mammoth. Or even the Bay area. There's great XC riding up there, and the weather is NICE! I'm doing a 9 day trip to Keystone this summer. Woo Hoo!! I think we'll stop at Brian Head on the way in order to break up the drive a little, plus I've never ridden there.

    I plan on only doing DH but would like to bring the dirt bike if there is time and if it is legal.
