Mountain Biking Cottonwood Valley North

****   Add a review
#9 of 108 mountain bike trails in Nevada
#1,258 in the world
The Cottonwood Valley Trail System - North trails feature multiple trails of varying skill level which intersect. Following the directions to trailhead above will provide a choice between Landmine Loop and The Hurl. Other trails in this area are Lil' Daytone, Molly's, Inner Loop, Cactus Slalom, Lawnmower, Rubber Duck, Middle Fork, Old Spanish, Late Night, and Mustang. This area is BLM land and does have wild horses and wild burros; although they will mostly avoid bikers on the trail I have suddenly encountered a mother and baby burro at a turn. Be aware this is desert area and the heat can truly be intense - make sure to bring lots of water. There are rock gardens, steep inclines, flowy singletrack, and more fun to be had by patching together your favorite trails. Parking in town is a luxury in such a small community. Please be kind and courteous to ensure hikers and mountain bikers continue to be afforded this level of access.
