Details
This is a leisurely stock run with a couple of challenging spots. We did this run in July 2019 and the trip was quite beautiful. You can choose to exit the same way we go in or continue up to the radio tower overlooking Verdi and the I80. Exiting this route dumps you out at Boomtown.

I would love to. Everything is being held up right now by waiting for the new vintage air unit I bought but still haven't received. I'm having fun fixing and replacing all kinds of other stuff in the meantime, but I'm getting antsy to finish it up. This trip is in August so there's a chance I finish by then, if so I'm going to try and make it. Also I need to make it out to a meeting and officially join the club. Can I join even though I haven't been on any runs, etc.?

You are part of the club. Just pay the dues next time you make a meeting. :)

Is the 40 the only 4x4 you have? A stock rig with 2-speed transfer case can make this run easy.

I'll be full, but I bet you can jump in with someone else. We won't leave you behind if you show up... No promises on HOW you'll be positioned for the trail though...

Some folks from Toyotally Awesome Cruisers may join us again for this run. I plan to peel off the main group to explore some of the other trails once we finish lunch at Hunter Lake. Everyone is welcome, but I expect the exploring to take a couple of hours or more over the normal trip.

If I end up going you are welcome to ride with me too @airon23

Tony, what other trails are you thinking about? Only ever been to the lake and back down same direction and like I said that was years ago.

There is a path out that drops you onto pavement across the freeway from Boomtown. There's also a trail called Bronco Creek trail and is part of NF100 and several other smaller looping trails as well. The purple trail below is the trail to Boomtown...

The yellow trail below is Garson Rd and Section Corner Spur F. NF100 is green. I want to check out the termination point for the yellow trail, but there may be a gate at the bottom in "Floreston Properties" like there is at the bottom of NF100. I am ok turning around if need be. The blue trail is takes you to Bronco Creek and I want to explore it to the end too.

OK, so looking at a half day to full day adventure ride depending on how things pan out.
I have fished in the Floriston area before and know there is a bridge that you can cross that leads to a power station. If I remember correctly the road continues on past the power station BUT has a locked gate.

Hey @Dan Dominy ! It took us about 4 hours with an hour stop at Hunter Lake for lunch.


Here's the Track from the last trip if you want to dig a little deeper.
Thanks Tony, I'm a part time member of Totally Awesome, but also live in Incline. Working out who wants to ride along but certainly hope to join you. Best Dan
