This route should take 1-2 hours on an e-bike or 90 minutes to 3 hours with no pedal assist. Great route for beginner who is advancing to intermediate. Some rocky sections may be difficult and require walking but they are short and safe. Great ride for a group with mixed abilities. Loop is easily accessed from the Sawtooth trail system staging area at location listed below which is off Thelin Rd. in Truckee, Ca.
