Wilson Canyon

AKA: Walker River, Copperbelt Dr, Pine Grove Hills, Mt. Wilson, Black Peak, Black Mountain, Smith Valley, Smith Nevada - Walker Creek, Walker River Trails, Sm

Summary


These hard-pack dunes alongside Walker River offer plenty of hill climbs, and a large designated staging and camping area. Some of the surrounding trail loops are a bit rocky, and there is no single-track, but the scenery is great, with deep colored canyons and some nice views of the river. This a good place to take the family for the weekend or a novice rider, and there are additional trails to explore on the opposite side of the rest area and across the highway (southwest of main staging area). Be sure to obey all signs and do not ride near the river, as this will further encourage certain local groups who are trying their best to close the area down to OHVs.
