    Hi,

    I'm planning a 1-way trip from Lake Tahoe to Boulder, CO, and looking for recommendations. We will have 7 days to complete, and would like to ride as much dirt as possible. I'm thinking about mostly just burning hwy 50 across NV, to spend most of our time in UT and CO. We will be doing this in July, so heat will be an issue. I'm guessing that means not the best time for Moab. I downloaded the tracks for the NV, UT, and CO BDRs. I'm thinking the we might spend most of our time on the SW UT part, and CO, though we won't have time for all. Our skill level isn't that high (yet) so want to keep it a little on the easier side. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    You could follow the Pony Express Trail to Salt Lake City from Carson City, NV. Pretty sure there are ride reports on here that you could get some good info.
