Flat, easy trail following the Steamboat Ditch up to Hole in the Wall. Good for first-time dirt riders of any bike type. Wouldn't recommend taking road 23s, but reinforced 28s and up are no problem. Trail is typically busy; please be respectful of other trail users.

       Rode to the hole in the wall, pretty dry fun conditions, some damp turns in spots but no issues, shorts and long sleeve on a 60 degree day.

       Fun, relatively flat, a bit muddy past Mayberry Park. Wait for a few dry weeks to go!

      We're starting a mountain biking group in PACT for Casual/Average/Newbie mountain bikers, where we explore trails on a regular basis near Reno. Drop by, say hi, and join a ride!

      About P.A.C.T. (Pacific Adventure Collective)

      Our core audience is regular/working adults who want to lead a more active, social lifestyle. The idea is simple: You become more like the people you surround yourself with. If you want to do more biking, you need more "biking friends". If you want to do more gaming, you need more "gaming friends".

      So, join our community, share your interests, find new interests, and maybe you'll help start an interest group/community of your own.
