4X4 Trail Rides
Search the web…
Participating in 4X4 Trail rides are the backbone of four-wheeling whether in a jeep, truck or ATV. These articles are about actual trail rides, describing where to go and what to do.
Most of the outings took place in Northern Nevada and Eastern California, without regard to Seasons or weather.
We ride year around in the snow, mud, sand, dirt, rocks and whatever else is in our path.
Some of our destinations include the Pine Nut Mountains, Lake Tahoe, the Rubicon Trail, Desert Creek Nevada and the Sweetwater Range, Pine Grove and Rockland historic mining districts, the East Walker river, Bode to Aurora loop, Alpine County high mountain trails, Austin Nevada district and it’s back roads, Sand Mountain and many more neat 4X4 trail rides.
We will share the locations and access points of some of our favorite riding spots, most of which end up miles off the beaten path in remote areas.
Some of my most fun rides take place in the Pine nut range behind my house. The Pine nuts are located about 25 miles east of South Lake Tahoe, not far from Minden Nevada. We have ridden as far as 100 miles in a day (round trip) and could go even further if desired.
Many friends come to our house to park their vehicles and take dirt bikes on several hundred mile rides. The opportunities are endless here in Northern Nevada due to the vast amount of BLM and US Forest Service lands to ride on. I have been riding this area since 1988 and still run across new trails and places I haven’t been. A typical ride for me and my friends is about 20 miles round trip. We ride year around in any weather only limited by the deep snow in the higher elevations in the winter.
