Mountain bikers will delight in the varied terrain of Nevada’s trails. In northern Nevada, the Tahoe Rim Trail is a must.

Peavine Mountain, the Virginia City Imba-Epic Ride and the Comstock Bicycle Ride also provide challenging terrain in the Reno and Carson Valley areas. In rural Nevada, the Austin Mountain Bike Trail Network offers canyons, loops and runs through sagebrush and rocky hills.
