This is like a mini 'flow trail' along the Ash Canyon Creek, that is best ridden top to bottom.

Usually snow covered in the winter until late March.

Description

This trail starts at a well-marked small parking area about two miles up the dirt road in Ash Canyon. The trail is an intermediate trail that less experienced riders could navigate if they stop and walk their bikes at about five to six short, more technical, areas (small steps, one bigger drop, rocks, and two narrow bridges). The trail is fairly well maintained.

It's a fun, relatively short, downhill 'flow type trail' along the Ash Canyon creek that flows year round. There is one big drop area that I walk around, other rides or jump, and I find the bottom third of the trail more technical as it is more narrow with steeper drops on the right side.

The trail has many wildflowers in the spring, some small aspen groves, and sage brush. There is a picnic table to your right along the creek at the top of the trail. There can be uphill riders and occasional hikers on this trail so beware. Also, I have seen mule deer in the canyon several times.

This is a very enjoyable ride close to Carson City.
