Anyone from around carson city NV?

Recommended Posts

im about 2 hours south of there.

 

A buddy of mine, NV Zeno, just got a place there not too long ago. I usually drive up there to hit the junkyard, but i hear there are some trails out that way as well.

Well is Reno close enough??? Glad to see another local on the board. There aren’t to many around here. A billion Subaru's up here and almost no one has found the board yet.

I tried Kings Canyon, from the top of Spooner a couple of years ago. I went a couple of miles, then a nasty washout made me turn back (I was by myself, out of cel service).

 

I went up from the Carson side a few weeks ago, got past the campground a few hundred yards, but the sharp rocks embedded in the trail kind of made me a little leery, afraid to shred a tire (also by myself then).

 

Prison Hill was OK, quite different than Tahoe or Doyle. A good place to go offroad for a "quickie"..just watch out for motorcycles.

Brian, you posted as I was typing, heh heh.

 

The washout I saw was impassable. A complete and sheer washout, no way around.

Brunswick Canyon is really rough. Lots of big sharp bowling ball size rocks.

 

The hill out Goni Road (behind the airport) has lots of trails, one goes over to New Washoe City.

 

Then there's Jumbo Grade, I'd like to try that.

 

I believe Kings Canyon still has lots of snow, especially up at the top (can be seen from Spooner Summit (US 50)).

 

There's a few easy trails just off of Deer Run St., going east towards Brunswick. Good for 2WD.

Doyle Grade is where we go cutting Xmas trees (with the USFS permit, of course). It's north of you: 395 north of Hallelujah Junction, into California , north of railroad crossing. Doyle Grade is well signed on the left. Take Doyle past pavement's end into USFS land, voila.
