The girlfriend and a few friends are looking to do a nice camping trip this august for about ten days (leave the 2nd and return to salt lake by the 12/13th)
Home for me is New Jersey; grew up riding the tech/rock xc trails of northern new jersey and still love that riding today. I've been having trouble finding the tech trails of slc so i'm planning this trip to get out and find some stuff that may take 2 or more goes to clean!
So the aim of the trip is probably to head to tahoe first; and camp, possibly car camp, without a campground. So i really need suggestions of where to camp where we can legally be there with fire going. From there i need some trail suggestions. I've got my eye on Grouse Ridge (that ride looks awesome!!!) I'd like to do three or more tech. rides and one kind of leisure ride to relax. We'll be riding hardtail XC bikes; but i'm not scared of few foot drops or stuff like that. The girlfriend is just as strong if not stronger when it comes to climbing (years of soccer and crap) so rides that don't require miles and miles of continuous climbing would be ideal. hopefully i'll become a stronger climber by the time the trip happens. Other rides i've heard of are toads, hole in the ground, and the ridge trail. We'll only have one car and i don't really know anything about the shuttle situation, but driving to a trailhead for an out and back or loop would be best.
We might even hike a bit
Then on to yosemite !
havent really researched this area so vastly open for suggestions!
