The NASTR Ride is the second ride in the NASTR Challenge Series. Whether you are looking for a more relaxed shorter ride with our Did You Die? Intro Ride Series, aiming for the limited distance Hat Trick, completing all the 50s for the Trifecta, or taking on the challenge of the Triple Crown, we will see you there!
The trail will be of moderate difficulty. Pads and/or boots are recommended!
The desert terrain varies from rocky to sandy with steep uphill and downhill, some trails, some cross country, and jeep roads. Elevation varies from 4600′ to 7500’.
The trail offers riders an opportunity to see some of the Virginia City 100 mile ride course.
The 75 mile consists of four loops, each returning to camp. The 50 mile ride consists of three loops, each returning to camp. The 30 mile ride consists of two loops, which offer horse and rider teams a moderate challenge, while enjoying the beautiful views from the mountain tops and the beaches of Washoe Lake.
Washoe Lake State Equestrian Park is located between Reno and Carson City at 4855 Eastlake Blvd, New Washoe City, Nevada.
Due to the State Park fee schedule your overnight camping fees ARE NOT included in the entry fee. Your day use fee is covered by Ride Management. You will need to pay your camping fee upon arrival to the park, at the fee booth. Camping is $15.00 per vehicle, per night (Non-NV Vehicles: $20.00 per vehicle, per night) Nevada residents with annual parking permits are covered for day use only.

The elevation is over 5000’ so come prepared for any type of weather. Portable corrals should be placed outside the post barriers to better utilize vehicle parking space.
