DESCRIPTION
Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

This large remote area is located about an hour north of Reno and has miles of high desert trails that consist mostly of dry, rocky and rugged terrain and sandy washes. Most of the vegetation is sagebrush and scrub brush so come prepared with your own shade and water.

Recent improvements include trail signage, kiosks and loading ramps and there are plans to add picnic tables, fire rings, graveled parking and restrooms. The riding area is still very remote, about 20 miles from the nearest services in the town of Sutcliffe at the Pyramid Lake Marina. Sutcliffe has a general store, gas station, restaurant and bar, RV campground and boat launch services.

In past years the trails have not seen a tremendous amount of use, probably due to nearby alternatives such as Moon Rocks and Fort Sage OHV Area, but this may change as the areas north of Reno continue to develop. The annual MRANN Diamond Back Hare Scrambles are sometimes hosted on and around these trails in the springtime. Detailed Trail Map
