Duck Hill

Here are some great photos from Lester. Lester explored the Duck Hill area fire roads earlier in the month. He started in the lot off east Lake Blvd across from the wildlife area. At the time of the ride there was still some snow on the North facing sides. There was also some loose sand, but as Lester reports, it was a great day riding with the trails all to himself.

Here are Lester’s photos with commentary:

Duck Hill

Top of the first grade looking North. That is East Lake blvd. with the wildlife reserve to the North. I park in that dirt area at the bottom left.

Flat section following the first grade looking south to Carson. The fire road to the left follows the power line down to the excavation pit.

This road is steeper and also heads to the pit.

Duck Hill

I like this road as a DH but as you can see still snowbound. It is accessed from near those towers and is nice and long ending at the pit.

This is the top of the climb to duck hill. The pit is down and to the right. The radio towers are to the upper right. The road ahead travels east. You can turn off it to the South going to the towers or continue on and turn off heading North with views of Washoe lake all along the way.

  1. I am always amazed by how fantastic the vistas are from your trails. But at the same time, it is so completely different than out here. We rarely can see further up the trail than a couple hundred feet at a time due to the trees and ground cover.
    Looks like a great place to ride!

  2. Even in our wooded areas, there is still great visibility since the trees are widely spaced. Another plus is the great air quality we enjoy here.

    Definitely hard to get lost.

  3. For a minute there I thought that you had visited my hometown of Duck Hill, Ms. On your next vacation take a trip down and take in some great scenery.
