    Yeah! Now you`re talking! I was having a great time ducking under the branches and leaning into the corners right here in my chair when the dog came up and I had to laugh. I love the fall aspens, too.

    Nice Vid
    Looks like a great trail. I thought the dog had you for a minute. Suppose there could have been worse things chasing you!! Where is this trail located?

    its pretty easy to find. there thomas creek and whites creek trails up there.

    just go up mt. rose high way, and turn right onto timberline (across from Montreux)
    then you just go back there and you'll see signs. if your not into riding up, take 2 cars and you can park at the top of thomas creek. but the best way is to go up whites creek, go across dry pond then down thomas

    It used to be about a half hour South of Reno, but they`ve slowly been moving both the mountain and the highway to the North. Now they`ve pretty much arrived at the South edge of Reno.

    The weird thing about these clips is that it seems to take so long to ride down. When I`m on a bike there, I could swear the ride back down only lasts 30 to 60 seconds. What gives?

    You have it backwards- I`m the grannie! Nah, more likely it`s just so much fun comming down that it feels like it`s over as soon as you start. Give it a shot if you ever get up this way.

    the trail does go by fast, unfortuantly, but tahts why we shuttle back and forth, get a couple runs it, makes it more fun

    i wonder if i've seen you guys out there, i'm not sure if i've seen any guys hollin down, always see them goin up.

    i'll keep my eyes open, i plan on riding it saturday no matter what the weather
