These trails are certainly great for the serenity! No one else around, but some of the trails route through sandy/micro-gravel washes. Also there were stampeding cows. Some very fun sections, but route finding not super easy on the back loops (very good signage, just not enough traffic to keep the trail always visible). Did I mention the sandy washes? Not fast up or down, but good for a work-out, and definitely better than not riding.

Trail is located about 2 miles south of Battle Mountain on NV HWY 305, not where the gps map shows it. FUN trails options in nevada sage. Great views and flowy trails in a stacked loop system. IMBA helped design segments of the trails, so they are sweet!

Customer Service

Playground on ridge = bits slickrock & singletrack mashed together
Dill-Doe Canyon Trail = super fast flowing descent over too soon. link up with:
Limestone Canyon = 7 mile loop or can link up with Longs Canyon if you ride the exposed trail backwards.
Entire 'chilada = Do the long's Canyon Loop. Good fast singletrack with views of the surrounding valleys and mountains - 15 miles worth. The exposed section is rippin' (thanks Dan & Rob @ BLM!)

Dang good ridin' for the middle of nowhere.

We are interested in starting a bike club here on saturday mornings. We typically do the 6 mile intermediate loop at 6.30 in the morning, otherwise it's too damn hot. It's a great climb up through boulderfieds, then a very nice descent. The 11 miler is ok, we advise taking the road up all the way then jumping on the trail. Descent on this trail is more of a traverse ride back. Some soft sand in localized areas and a few scree fields you'll ride through.

Customer Service

Love the 6 miler, it's a perfect, quick ride.

They did a good job designing this trail to take advantage of the topography. It follows a series of jeep trails, dry washes and constructed singletrack to make some fun loops. I took the intermediate trail, and intend to go back to try the advanced stuff on the ridgeline. Do follow the suggested direction on the trail map at the trailhead - it'll make for some fun downhill on the backside. The trail is well marked but is somewhat overgrown in places - more people need to ride it! I did manage to lose the trail briefly on the out, primarily because I was buzzing along at a pretty good clip through some overgrown cheat grass. Finding it again was simple.

Customer Service

There is a beginning, intermediate and advanced loop. Choose according to your skill level.

This trail would make a fun stop on a multi-day bike tour through Lamoille, Battle Mountain, Austin, Eureka and Ely.

This trail Rocks, even though its full of rocks. But that's Neveda for you. It offers something for all experience levels but I best loved the fast and furiously fun single track sections. The playground offers groovy technical rocky stuff to challenge even the trials trained riders. The playground is a loop at the top of a mesa with spectacular views of classic Nevada sagebrush and desolation. No overcrowding here!

Customer Service

Follow the green line if you are a beginner, blue if your intermediate, or hang out on black lines if you fancy yourself a hero.
