A friend of mine, his 13 y.o. son and I are planning a trip from Humboldt County, California to Crested Butte for some fun this summer.
Looking for suggestions, recommendations, personal experiences for:
Hwy 80, Hwy 50, or Hwy 70…. going out AND coming back.
I've done 50 and 70 before but that was about 13 years ago for each one, so my info is probably outdated a bit?
We'll be set up to ride some trails (but not real long XC trails), and DH.
We were thinking of driving hard the first day to reach SLC, if we go the 80/50 routes.
No date set yet, but probably June/July… possibly early August.
If there are things happening along any of these routes on particular dates that you think we should stop and check out… let me know
We were planning on up to 10 days, but it may be more like 8.
Also looking for places to camp overnight along the way… KOA's, State Parks… so recommendations on those would be good. I've had good luck with KOA's… just getting a tent site and throwing the bag on a ground sheet if the weather permitted. We're not too picky, but we don't want to rough it so hard we're not getting a good nights rest for the drive the second day, going out or coming back.
