Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
This was a good ride.  We had just come from Tahoe where everything seemed like a climb.  This is a true downhill.  It is not all downhill, but you will use the few uphills to express you much fun you had with the other riders in your group.
Would you ride again?
Yes
Any suggestions?
Camp near Packers Saddle, but stay off the private land.  There is a good place just off the paved road on the Sardine Lake side of the pass. We rode from there.  I would not want to take the RV up that final grade to Packers Saddle.
