Mountain Biking in Nevada’s Central Highlands is still a virtually unknown mecca for fat tire, dirt pedaling, aficionados. On the trails outside of Austin, Nevada, and sponsored by the USFS, miles of marked double track trails for all ability levels exist. Ride while chatting with your friends and family along road accessed, wind swept ridges. Drop down long down hills into well watered creeks and meadows, and pedal through aspen glades below peaks of the northern Toiyabe Range soaring over 10,000’.
