Mountain Biking Gold Venture Loop

  Add a review
#78 of 107 mountain bike trails in Nevada
#21,475 in the world

Birch Creek is a beautiful canyon with a juniper woodland, aspen groves, and
numerous springs. The drop is a great descent, but get ready to climb out through
Birch Creek Canyon on an old pack trail. A mine at the top of Birch Creek marks
the end of the long climbs.

A fast descent through several switchbacks leads to the return trail. Watch for
the right turn at the lower edge of the junipers. The return can be fast, especially
with a south wind. The trail contours along the mountain fron with short climbs at
Crow Canyon and Fandango Hill. The winding mine road near Stokes Castle is fast
and fun. End with a short climb to downtown.

Alternative: An out and back alon the return trail of the Gold Venture Loop can
be great ride for all levels. It has a few climbs but is mostly fas and winding. A
good trail for speed work.

Any questions pm me.
