DESCRIPTION
Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

This part of the Toiyabe National Forest has about 17 miles of forest service roads and rocky 4x4 trails. These are just rocky roads, not motorcycle trails. You will not find any single track, but the scenery makes this a good choice for a slow ATV loop or camping trip.

The area is not crowded and fishing, boating and primitive camping are permitted. Please respect the land by packing out what you bring in and by leaving the area cleaner that what you found it. This will help keep the area open for future riders to enjoy.
