    You don't really care, do you.
    Some of my favorite trails are only 15 miles away, and my second favorite areas are about 120 miles away. Lots in between those two spots though.

    Less then a half mile from the Rubicon trail. And plenty of other trails all around Lake Tahoe. But the Rubicon is one of my favorite. So not far at all.

    One way is about 50 miles to my favorite spot which is my families land in GA. I have trails within 5 miles of me but they aren't nothing but mud pits.

    They are places to go all over the place around here. Nevada has more miles of unpaved roads & trails than it has paved. You just find a trail and start exploring.
    1 1/2 to 2 miles if I'm desperate
    About 15 miles to the one I've run the most.
    Just found a new one about 30 miles away that is alot of fun.
