    I did a ride over there last summer on my VStrom 650. Great riding area.

    BTW it is possible to get to Lockwood. When you backtracked from the locked gates and then started heading west, about 4/5ths of the way between your SVC007 and SVC004 points there is a road heading north that goes thru.

    Its the point that I have centered this zoomed in map: http://www.gpxchange.com/gpxmap/mappage.asp?maptool=center&zoom=2.25&cntrx=-119.626060628956&cntry=39.4255688325277&lastzoom=4&controls=center&zoommap=1&x_ID=103205&tick=41&labels=1&return=home&from=fileinfo&background=T&print_scale=0

    Thanks. I've looked at the maps since the ride and can see several variations including a legal out to Lockwood. We did the ride on the spur of the moment and didn't really have any good maps with us. We'd probe, hit a dead end, then turn around and try something else. Am anxious to go back and add some more tracks.

    If you've got the jiggys for it, or a modded jeep, Bronco Canyon is about 3 miles South of the Petroglyphs. reno4x4.com has more info on the trails in northern nevada:freaky

    ride it while you can kids.that whole area with the exception of 80 acres surounding the petroglyphs is slated for development. we are talking cul de sacs, strip malls, about 10 starbucks, the whole shitaree.
    if you get the chance kick a developer in the balls.

    If you can, please provide more details. Our 4x4 group works extensively to try and save our offroad areas.

    the land is already bought and paid for. what happens next is up to our county planning commision, then to the commisioners.
