Mullen Creek

Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Needle Point, Pyramid Lake

Last Known StatusOpen

The stretch of BLM land has no trees, shade or amenities, but is very close to Pyramid Lake and offers a handful of desert trails suitable for any beginner.

The area mainly consists of sandy jeep trails and a couple of short makeshift motocross loops with some berms and small rockers. Primitive camping is permitted, and the area is reasonably accessible to RVs and large trailers.
