Red Rock Rumble
Intro Ride - 30 - 50
October 12, 2024
There will be a 50- and 30-mile ride, along with the Intro Ride. As in previous years, the lunch stop for the 30s and 50s will be back in camp, with light refreshments offered.
The 50-mile ride consists of three loops of 20, 17, and 13 miles respectively, with vet checks in camp.
The 30-mile ride consists two loops of 17 and 13 miles respectively, with a vet check back in camp.
We are offering an Intro Ride for those who want to experience endurance riding at a beginner’s level. Scenic trail sections will be marked out for 5 and 10 mile distances. Intro Riders can ride any combination of sections.
Through the generosity of several local ranchers, we will have lots of water available throughout the ride. It is the consideration of another local landowner that we were able to get you into some really great areas.
The trail is almost entirely sandy jeep roads and sandy single track trail. There are hardly any rocks. You will pass through a meadow or two that can be wet depending on the weather, and there is usually a bit of trail grass along the way as well. There are no significant water crossings but if we have a wet fall there can be very small (i.e. less than 12 inch wide and 3 inch deep) creeks.
Base camp is bare bones. There is horse water available, but for the most part you need to plan on bringing what you need.
There will be no camp fires allowed.
Parking is very limited so if you can trailer-pool please do so, and plan on parking conservatively.
Ride camp is located off Red Rock Road, just a little north of Reno.
Take the Red Rock Exit off US Hwy 395 and head east 15 miles. There will be ribbons and signs telling you where to turn right onto a dirt road. Follow the dirt road about a mile to camp.
This is a single lane road and will be entrance only on Friday/Saturday am and exit only on Saturday pm/Sunday.
