This jeep trail in southwest Reno offers a mix of wooded cutbacks and rocky meadows with some great city views. If you stick to the main road, it’s not the most difficult climb you’ll ever make, but its rocky enough to frustrate any beginner on a motorcycle. Quads handle it better, but the make-shift MX track at the upper staging area (top of the first hill about 1/4 mile in) is as far as you’ll want to go with the tykes. There are some nice camping spots up at hunter lake (a shallow pond about 6 miles in), and you can continue past the lake for even more jeep trails which eventually lead to Hwy 89. This is not a bad day-ride, overall, and the views of Reno are great, but it’s the kind of trail you’ll only want to ride once.
