Mountain Biking Cahill Canyon Run

  Add a review
#68 of 107 mountain bike trails in Nevada
#17,689 in the world

The trail follows an intermittent creek into a woodland of juniper and scattered
aspen groves. Heading north out of Cahill Canyon, the trail joins Highway 50
briefly. Go left on the highway but watch for the right turn onto a two-track
heading north. This track heads toward a small canyon, a left turn with occasional
stream crossings, and a final climb back to Austin Summit. The descent back to
the town of Austin is fast and fun.

Alternative: Start the ride at Austin Summit and avoid the initial climb from
town. This reduces the ride by about 4 miles and 800 feet of climbing

Getting there

The Cahill Canyon Run is a great trail for riders looking for a quick, moderate
challenge. The ride begins with the climb toward Austin Summit. The climb
continues to the south along the ridge of the Toiyabe Range. Turn left shortly
after the downhill begins. (Watch the trail signs-several trails share the ridge.)
The descent can be tricky due to the vegetation.
