Stead MX

Monday, March 10, 2014
Alt Names Red Rock Road Exit, Lemmon Valley Motocross Track
Last Known Status Open
DESCRIPTION

This area features an amateur motocross track, a go-kart track and some surrounding desert trails. The track is generally not groomed (except for races) so it is usually dry, dusty and very hard packed.

Most of the surrounding trails are a mix sand washes and rocky, hard-packed fire roads which are uninteresting, but it is possible to ride southeast, over the ridge and connect up with the trails in Hungry Valley. The hills behind the track are a popular place for locals to catch the annual Reno Air Races that are held every year in late September.
