Squaw Valley Peak

A great mountain bike ride with J. and M., loop around Squaw Valley Peak via McReynolds Valley and Siegfried Canyon, in area 10 miles north of Beckwourth, CA. This ride features interesting terrain, forests, meadows, and lava flows, a climb up a dirt/rock road in Siegfried Canyon, and a glorious descent on the paved road back to Squaw Valley.
