Places to Ride in Reno...

Because we have more and more riders coming to Reno to ride, I put together a few files to aid navigation and locate the staging areas. It has most of the good spots to ride near Reno. The files are linked below. There is a Google Earth file (KMZ), a Garmin Database v.2 file (GDB), and also a GPS Exchange file (GPX), which will can be imported into Google Earth and most GPS devices and mapping software. Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

Google Earth KMZ file

Garmin Database v.2 GDB file

GPS Exchange GPX file

Search Keywords:


Sand Mountain


Honey Lake





Dog Valley




Viewing Instructions...

Save the file to your computer.

Open the Google Earth program.

Go to FILE ---> OPEN.

Select the file...


Open the Google Earth program.

Drag the file onto the map area of the program.

For some reason Google Earth doesn't load it when double clicked. .. :thumbsup:

I only unzipped the program and then double clicked on it. Google Earth popped right .

OK.. I think I had a problem with my file types.


Deleted the KMZ and KML files types.

Repaired the Google Earth installation.

Everything is good now :thumbsup:

Thanks Fryboy!

For the others.... This is the fix for "protocol error" if it doesn't open when double-clicked. :thumbsup:

Dude, that's awesome. Thanks. :thumbsup:


Added the GPX and GDB files, for those who might be interested.

      Trying to buy an older yz125 w a green sticker. I came across a 2004 that is green sticker. Per the owner "CA used to do a lottery thing on a certain year and bike and it was the 04 125 that got the green sticker". 
      I am gonna confirm the VIN, but was wondering if it's in fact true that CA issued green stickers with a lottery system for 2003 and newer bikes?
      I tried searching and couldn't find anything. 
      Thank you all for you advice.

      I just picked up a 2018 YZ250X and need to do my break in. How gnarly is Rowher Flats after rains like we just had? I'm thinking about heading there Sunday. I moved to LA last year and I've only been there 3 or 4 times, but so far I enjoy the riding there more than most of the "day trip" locations.
      Not the biggest fan of Hungry Valley, but I imagine HV is ok despite the rain this week.
      Side note, how bad does the road in to RF get after weather like we just had?

      Anybody heading out to Ridgecrest on Sunday?  Looks like rain in the forecast Saturday.  I got froze out last weekend, would like to get out there especially after the rain.
