there are as number of 'trails' in that general area-- some so-called secret, others well known. One regular trail is Steve's Loop. Here's a pic from last summer of the 1st water fall/ sluice.

Steve's Loop is not a hardcore trail. That photo is a little misleading, it is really the only hard spot on the trail. It is very scenic though and close to Moon Rocks.

Better hit up the "outcasts" at therockgods........since they are the ones with the tires bigger than 33s!!!!And have likely had their tires on the big rocks and know where they are.


Editefinition of outcasts in Reno are.......Big tires,Carnage likely,Mad Sh!t Talkin,and owner built capable rigs!!!Guess PIRATE 4X4 is considered an outcast too????

Anytime, I just have to replace a broken stub I twisted off at moonrocks a few weeks ago. And CHris and I did see you towing your junk in p-ville with a few other rigs last weekend. How was the trip?

I wondered who that was. Hard to hit up P'ville though without getting waved at. Everybody loves Baggy

Twister and Billy Bobs are no secret, they are in Spanish Springs behind the Highschool up Eagle Canyon road. There is also 2 other canyons back there without names. Anytime you wanna hit em up, pm me.

X2 on Steve's Loop, very tame trail. The pic shown are the only rocks on the trail.
