Free Public Trail Grooming during winter months. Classic and Skate, snowshoe, fat bike, dogs, pedestrians welcome. Pack it in Pack it out. No trailhead facilities or amenities. Please keep area clean. Multi Use. Watch for Snow Machines! 

Headed towards Reno, the grooming starts just beyond the right-hand side pull-out following the Incline Scenic Viewpoint on Mt Rose Highway (1.4 miles beyond the Scenic Viewpoint). Please park on the South side of the highway in the pull-out area. Do not park on the opposite side of the road and cross the highway on foot. If it is snowing and/or the state is plowing the highway, do not park at all. Alternatively, you can find the trails by entering the forest at the Ophir Creek Trailhead and make your way up the hill at a 45-degree angle where you will tie into the upper loop. 


We have continued to partner with Nevada State Parks to ensure that 8kms of Nordic trails at Spooner State Recreation Area are groomed throughout this season! Don’t be fooled by the construction at Spooner, Nordic trails are open. Community members and guests can look forward to another year of beautiful trails. While Spooner State Park does charge for parking ($10/vehicle), trail access is FREE!
