Eagle Canyon Drive

Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Spanish Springs, Hungry Valley, Reno Sparks Indian Colony, Chickadee Lane, Lemmon Valley

Last Known StatusOpen

This is the lesser known south entry point to Hungry Valley, a large BLM area littered desert fire roads, single-track through the sage brush, and long winding sand washes. Most of the main trails are whooped out but there are enough side trails to keep it fun. Overall, this is a great place to check out for a half-day ride, but the trails can be connected up to nearby Sun Valley, Stead MX, and Moon Rocks riding areas for longer trips.
