This trail follows the Humboldt River on the south bank. It is spectacular for bird watching in the spring. You will see many species of water birds and raptors if you do this ride from April to June. From the "old" school parking lot, ride your bike back up the highway towards 1-80 for 1/4 mile. Cross the railroad tracks (both sets) and take a right (east). You are on a wide dirt road. Ride this for 1/4 mile until you can cross a fence next to the road. You should be able to see the river where you cross. Start riding the singletrack (created by cows) right next to the water. This ride meanders right next to the river for up to 15 miles. The only technical sections are sandy sections and thrashing through the sagebrush at times. This is a very seasonal ride and changes frequently with the water level.

Not very fun, sandy and very brushy, sprinkled with cow patties. Trailhead obscure and hard to find. Like most of the "rural" rides in Nevada, come prepared with a full set of tools, tubes, and snakebite kit.

It's not the methodist church, it's the mormon church you've got to look out for.
