Vacation Ride Suggetions
My daughter and I are from Las Vegas, NV and we will be spending a few days in Whitefish, MT then heading west on I-90 to the Seattle area then south towards Portland.
I am just looking for ride suggestions that may be close to our route. My daughter is very new to MTB, but I would love to get her out on some trails, especially if the views are nice. So I'm thinking more XC stuff, but I'll look at anything. I would hate to hear about some "epic ride" that I was just next to and didn't stop at.
Thanks for the help!
There are several good epic rides, but they might be out of your daughter's comfort zone. Kachese Ridge, RatPac, and Tiger Mtn all come to mind and are just off I90. If you're looking for something a little mellower, but still has nice views, Cooper River is a nice ride. Closer to Portland is Ape Canyon at Mt St Helen's. It is a bit off I5, but truly epic and is a ride like no other. Not too technical, but where else are you going to ride to and through a volcanic blast zone. Good luck!
