A very quick ride report. Sorry no great actions shots, just some photos of what this area has to offer. I love living here in Verdi. Hundreds of miles of trails accessible from my house.

Today, Reno was to get up to 103 degrees. My brother and I decided for a quick trip to Hunter Lake/ Mt Rose wilderness area. The altitude there is 8000 feet. High enough to get some relief from the heat.

Getting cooler, Radio relay station

Shot of looking down the valley, starting to get way cooler




up to 8000 ft, weather real nice and cool!

Typical road conditions here


Mt Rose wilderness area, and Hunters valley

Well that's about it, 35 miles, and many more to explore!

Stay tuned for more rider reports

Great pics. Looks like a fun place to ride. I bet the engine braking comes in handy on those steep inclines. Also I see you have a bed box and was wondering where you got it? I'm looking for one for trail riding to store stuff. Is it easily removed? I use My dump box when not trail riding.

The bed box is well worth it. I have it loaded with rescue jack, lift, spare oil/antifreeze, tools, shovel, etc. Gotta be prepared out here. It's removed by unscrewing four allen bolts, maybe a 5 minute job.
