    XC & DH trails near Reno & Tahoe & Carson City?

    I'm headed up to Carson City for a few days at the end of this week and would like to bring my bikes. Originally, I had planned to hit up N* but I would prefer to not deal with the crowds and closed off trails for the GRT race. Could anyone recommend an easy XC ride to take my girlfriend on? For myself I was thinking of Toads or Downeiville unless anyone has some other recommendations? I wasn't sure of the DH trail situation up there so I don't want to mention any names but if someone could PM me some info it would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Emigrant Trail off 89 in Truckee is very "significant other who doesn't ride as much" friendly. It's an out-and-back, so you can set your milage. I think the whole thing is ~ 20? round trip.

    Tyrolean (off Mt Rose highway by Incline Village) is a legit DH-ish option if the gf likes to shuttle you.

    Both are on the "Tahoe Adventure Map" which is well-worth buying, avail at local shops.

    Lake Tahoe Mountain Biking/Hiking Trails and Guide- Adventure Map

    They have an interactive version of the map. You can't zoom in super close, but it shows you the idea and you can see most trails.
