From Tahoe City to Verdi (Reno) it's about 40 miles and 70% will be paved path and road. Takes about 4 hrs to do that route. Only the section from Hirschdale down to Verdi is dirt. Some mean switchbacks on there for a trailer but totally doable.

So it's a pretty short and uninteresting route for 2 days of camping. There's many alternatives / deviations to that route and can include the I-80 canyon section. More interesting flowers, scenery, less cars. Some modest increase tin distance and the camping/food/drink options increase and can and stay off Hwy 89.

Happy to help design a better route for you and upload to Strava or Ride With GPS.

What's your daily ride range in miles / elevation?

What's your Day 1 start time and intended Day 3 end time?

What time of year?
Rigbt nice of you to offer your help!
