      About 15 miles of trail live in Barnes Canyon. These trails are unique because berms are rare, tread is narrow and tight in many places, and you won't find perfect dirt sculptures that are in bike parks (which Caliente has). Explore big views on rugged terrain on a secret-feeling trail network in rural Nevada.
