Downhill run on from Squaw Peak. Starts out a little flat, but the end more than makes up for it.

Access Info

Drive to the top of Squaw Peak. The trail starts on the other side of some of the towers. If you loop around them, it's easier to see.

 Not a local, but I am not sure how you can drive to the top without an atv or utv shuttle rig. We rode up and were treated to a narrow and techy top and a steep, fast, and lose borrow section. Good stuff.

 One of my favorite trails in Nevada, Whorehouse Hill DH is a gnarly, loose, steep goat trail off the top of Squaw peak, then opens up into a screaming fast ridgeline descent on loose shale with rock hits and sniper lines littering the landscape. Don't you dare crash, and make sure your brakes are working because the last 1/4 mi is scary steep.

The shuttle access road is about as gnarly as the trail, definitely recommend a 4WD truck and a competent driver.
