      Lincoln County offers mountain bikers the next great adventure. Over 40 miles of non-motorized trails are being nestled in the county’s high desert. The area’s terrain, beauty, and climate combine to create an unrivaled mountain biking experience. Around 7.5 miles of trails on BLM-administered land are completed and ready to ride. These trails at Barnes Canyon, near Caliente, are marked and open with options for beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders.

      Construction of additional trails near Kershaw-Ryan State Park is set to begin in Spring of 2018.
