Mountain Biking Galena Creek Trail
#82 of 106 mountain bike trails in Nevada
#8,589 in the world
This trail passes through the manicured grounds and upscale homes of the Montreux Golf and Country Club. Beyond Montreux, the surroundings return to a more natural state before the path disappears in a tangle of thick brush and trees. This trail then winds up through the Sierra foothills. Galena Creek Park is seven miles up the Mt. Rose Highway from the intersection with U.S. 395. Galena Creek flows through the park creating separate north and south portions of the park. Campfire programs, ranger-led hikes, and exhibits in the old stone visitor's center add to the diversity of the park.
The main trail in Galena Creek is the Jones Creek/Whites Creek Loop trail.

The Galena trail officially starts at Galena Creek Park off the Mt. Rose Hwy, but you can also hike part of it from the Callahan Ranch area. You can reach this section of the trail by turning left onto Callahan Ranch Road off the Mt. Rose Hwy/Hwy. 431. Go through two stop signs and look for the park's parking area on the right.
