      Lander County is dream territory for mountain bikers. The COPPER BASIN
      MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILHEAD is located 3 miles south of Battle Mountain off of State
      Route 305. The trail system is marked with brown fiberglass markers. The loops offer a
      variety of technical and aerobic challenges on a combination of single and double track
      trails. Steep climbs and fast, technical descents wind through historic mining areas,
      sagebrush covered canyons, and rocky ridge tops in the northern Battle Mountain Range.
      Enjoy the trails for a quick 1-hour ride or a weekend-long adventure! Remember to
      prepare for the heat during the summer months by riding at dusk and dawn, and bringing
      plenty of water.
