Slickrock, Pardoe, or Strawberry anyone?

In the next couple weeks (I hope...), before the snow falls up in the sierras, I'd LOVE to run one of these three, more than likely Strawberry or Slickrock. Anyone else up for a run sometime? Strawberry is only like a 30-40 min drive from my new home so I'm game

I have a few buddies from Sonoma Couty I'm trying to get to come up, so hopefully we can get omsething together

dont waste your time at pardoe if you are looking for anything but a very long dirt road. like dubl-it said our club will be running slick rock in november, more than likley it will be either the first or third weekend of the month

From L.A. they are about 6 to 7 hours. Come on up.

I'll keep this thread up and see when you guys are going, if it's alright I might have to run with you all I've got two job offers going, either a snowmobile guide or a lift op. at Heavenly, so now that I don't know when I'll start work I'll have to wait and see, but I really want to run a trail

I'm familiar with the Strawberry OHV route to Strawberry Lake north east of Shaver Lake in Central CA, but that's obviously not your neck of the woods and not within 40 minutes drive from Sonoma Co..

I know where Pardoe and Slick Rock Rd are. Where is the Strawberry trail you refer to?

Did you run the whole trail? There is some good stuff at the top.

Sorry, I forgot to change my profile information, I moved to South Lake Tahoe about 2 months ago, and now it's about 30 minutes from where I live

I could be wrong, but Strawberry connects 50 and 88 right?

yes we ran the whole trail and there was one spot that was about a 4 but that was only about 30 yards long and it was the only spot I put it in 4 wheel and the rest after that I was running in 2-3 gear 2 wheel,but dont get me wrong there are some great veiws from the top of the trail even with the smoke from the fires when we went

You're probably 2 hours away I'd say. From what I've read Strawberry is fairly easy with the exception of a couple obstacles, so you could probably make it through

Strawberry could be quite challenging for someone on 29's

We had some friends that owned a motel in South Lake Tahoe when I was a kid. We'd spend a week or two there and wheel with them in their International Scouts. Good times.

Sounds like we're talking two different trails. The Strawberry OHV trail I'm familiar with is in the Sierra's east of Fresno, up above Shaver Lake. Always good to hear about other trails though, as we might be heading through Tahoe later this month to hit the Reno gun show.
