    Wow, they banned you??
    I like to ride most trails made of dirt.
    Nothing too crazy with rocks and other difficult obstacles.
    Mostly dirt.

    another vote for the Sierras, more to the Nevada side, love the hard pack, DG, and rocks. Unless its N* then its all rocks and loose, but still a ton of fun

    In the Tahoe area a favorite of mine is the Flume. My preferred route is Spooner Lake, to Marlette, to the Flume, then back to Spooner via the Tahoe Rim. 25 miles with about 3000' total elevation gain. One starts at about 7000'. One of the tougher 25 mile rides I have done due to the altitude and "beach sand" trail surface. But the views.................
