Mountain Biking Ash Canyon Trails

***   Add a review
#21 of 108 mountain bike trails in Nevada
#3,672 in the world

This is a network of singletrack trails criss-crossing a ridge between the Ash and Vicee Canyons. There are plenty of different route options as you get farther up the hill and the trails intersect each other. Although not very technical these trails are fun from the climbs and thus fast descents. There is a fun and twisty trail that follows along the creek flowing out of Ash canyon. The close proximity to town makes these trails popular with everyone and you may encounter hikers on the lower routes. Not having much in the way of trees until you get up high, these trails are pretty exposed and can be very hot in the summer months.
A little history; this area, like a lot of NV used to be open to ATV’s, however after a large forest fire in ‘06 (?) sparked by an ATV the area was closed to all motor vehicles. There are several left over old jeep roads running through here that mother nature is slowly taking back, this network crosses them in several places but the trail network itself is all singletrack.

From 395 or N Carson st (business 395) head West on College parkway up to a 4 way stop at Foothill Rd, turn right and follow this as it turns into Combs Canyon Rd. Left at Murphy dr to a small dirt lot at the corner of Van Patten behind the Community College. There is a paved trail leading south here.
#2 From N Carson st head west on W Winnie Ln to a right turn onto Foothill Dr, a short, dead end rd with parking. There is a paved trail headed North at the end of the road.
From either trailhead head up or down the paved trail a quarter mile to a wash (dry creekbed), this is coming out of the Vicee canyon. Grab the singletrack on the south bank of the wash and head up.
