    Boy, what a change from our posts a few weeks back about too much rain...

    With Mammoth planning to stay open for skiing until July 4th, I would imagine riding in the Sierras may still be a few months off...

    To hot?

    Sorry, but I'd rather have the heat than the rain. Sorry, I don't mean to sound contrary. I too would like the snow to melt, but all in due time.

    I thought Melt had said something stupid again.

    This thread is much less entertaining than another one of those threads would have been.

    Emmigrant Memorial Trail and Sawtooth are open. Not really tough sledding, but still cooler and a change to the poison oak and mosquitos

    It's the ridge above 89 just South of Truckee. The trailhead is on Thelin. It's about 12 miles of singletrack with an easy connection to the (closed this year) Northstar trail system and lots of other unsponsored singletrack, jeep, and fire roads.

    Bear

    last night out at Main Bar on the middle fork at the little picnic table site. scared the crap out of me because it started walking right towards me while I was off my bike. I got out a good yell and he took off down towards the river.

    So I stopped pissing and moaning and went for a ride last night.....see you at ROAM tonight
    :p

    I know the area pretty well. It's possible to get to Watson Lake using mostly single track and horse trails but the horse trails are rough, and they're really rough after the Tevis Cup horse race in July (if the snow melts in time ). Actually the horse trails, can't remember the names of them would be the most obvious but they're maintained for horses not bikes. Also dropping into Northstar and using their trails would work too. If none of that works you can always just grunt up the 06 fireroad, which actually is the easiest option with some great views over the canyon towards Squaw Valley.

    Actually I just thought of something. Rather than the 06 there are other fireroads to the east, but before crossing into Northstar across Schaefer Creek, that are rarely used (I've never seen anyone there except a massive deer) that get almost to the top that are a lot more bike friendly.
