We were recently up in Carson City, Nevada for Christmas and – given that there’s not a speck of snow on the Sierras at the moment – I decided to hunt down some singletrack to explore whilst we were in town. I found a great website run by a local bike store owner (www.bikecarson.com) which details most of the riding to be had in the Carson-Reno vicinity. Luke, Lisa, Katrina and I decided to run a trail system called Ash Canyon, located a few miles from Lisa’s grandma’s house. What an awesome ride: brilliant views of Carson City below, the trails were a smooth, burmed myriad of singletrack traversing the high desert and wooded canyons. Some super fast and smooth trail, all of us had a blast! The vid below is most of the downhill sections we rode: Creek Trail, Deer Run then Postal Route and finally Jackrabbit. I had the app from EveryTrail running on my phone while we were riding, the map below shows the route and also our elevation and speed throughout the ride. Katrina and I both ate a little dirt along the way but I have to say this is one of the best new trails I’ve discovered in a long time. If only we’d found it 10 years ago!
