The Peterson Range Ride

When: 5/20/18

Where: Peterson Range Jeep Trail north by northeast of Cold Springs

Meetup: Bordertown Casino parking lot off highway 395 north by Cold Springs. The facility has a gas station, little store, and restaurant with good breakfast.

Start: Meet at 10:00 am head out at 10:30 am Sharp.

How to get there: From Reno take Hwy 395 north 8 miles, take exit 83, make left turn on the overpass and cross the highway, make right and go short distance to Bordertown Casino.

Trail report: The trail is about 17 miles long of 4x4 Jeep track. Most of the trail is easy to moderate with a few places needing 4 wheel drive. Only one short section considered difficult and needing high clearance. There is a go around but might require you to drive a few miles around to meet back up with the group.

Time: 4 to 6 hours depending on stops and sightseeing.

Features: Magnificent scenic views looking towards the Sierra Nevada. Fun jeep trail with a few challenges. An old gold Mine. Wildlife, this is a mule deer winter habitat area, soaring eagles, and ravens.

Would like to join you on this trip but coming from the Bay Area I need to do at least a 2 day off-roading adventure for all the driving time involved. Keep me posted on your future runs. Have fun. What lake is the picture looking down on?

Lake behind rider is White Lake, in dry years it is a white playa and is used by wind sailors. The Lake to the left is Silver Lake another usually dry playa but with the change in climate, it's been full for a few years now.
The mountain in the middle is Peavine mountain.

Pre-run Peterson Mountain Trail today is on. Haven't logged in lately and didn't know you made posts, sorry about that.

You can do the trails with 32'. I have done all the trails but the boulder section with a stock wrangler with 30's. I don't have tracks yet. At the one difficult section we will look at it and may not do it. There is a go around.

See you today, Sunday. May 6, 12 noon, at the Border town Parking lot.
