Trail Overview

This is a delightful trail that runs up a canyon from Washoe Lake to Virginia City. There are several creek crossings. Since the creek drains into a rather large area, it is probably not wise to attempt this after a rain, or when the snow pack is still melting above. When you get to the top of the pass you will see a cluster of towers to the right. If you chose to ride into Virginia City for lunch, be sure to park on a side street and not the main street as it is a state highway and you will get a ticket.

Difficulty

For the most part, the trail is very nice, but there are off-camber sections and washouts that you have to watch for. Just keep your eyes open.

Running water in the creek bed, makes it really cool going through. Good variety trail with other spots to explore and make it more difficult. I did this in a stock suspension Jeep XJ and had a blast. Does require a little experience to pick a good route however.
