    Anyone have a track for Henness Pass Road from 89/stampede Reservoir over into Verdi?

    Called the ranger station and it is open, just a bit rough from the winter.

    Did you get any information? I am in Arizona for some military training, and plan to go through California on my way home to Minnesota. Henness Pass was one of the roads I hoped to take. I could wing it but really want to make sure the road is not going to be too rough for a heavy bike and my limited experience.

    Hi Jim, we ended up just going for it and it was fine, fairly heavily traveled by vehicles also. I would go for it, much more fun than 80!

    I just read regarding experience, there are some sections that are lumpy/rocky but if you just take it easy on those sections I think you'll do fine. Worst comes to worst and you dump the bike someone will come along to help pick it up, enjoy!
