Prosser Pits

Sunday, November 20, 2016

Alt Names

Prosser Borrow Pit, Prosser Dam, Prosser Reservoir, Prosser Ranch, Bocca Hill, Boca Reservoir, Old Reno Road, Tahoe National Forest, Truckee Ranger District

Last Known StatusOpen

This is the southern region of a three-part ride area that is surrounded by three reservoirs; Boca Reservoir, Prosser Reservoir and Stampede Reservoir. The trails here are a bit rocky and dusty but there is a motocross track and a play pit with numerous drops and step-ups near the dam, and various bits of single track to the north.

The area near the dam is mostly an open ride area, but that does NOT extend to the trails in the northern area. You can stage anywhere, check out the pits and motocross track here, or ride up north to find the various woods trails. For additional trails, check out nearby Prosser Hill to the west of 89.

This is a view of the makeshift motocross track. The track is mostly hard packed and a little dusty during dry weather but the views are nice.
