    So, we were headed to Baja next week to ride some great single track.
    With all that is going on now (CV) and the borders, etc., we have decided to stay on this side of the border.
    We will be camping out of a motorhome and doing day rides. Looking for lots of good and challenging single track to do day rides from camp.
    I have heard Laughlin, Jean, Nelson and Searchlight but that is pretty general.
    Can anybody here help out on a couple of spots to camp n ride? (GPS coordinates would be awesome).
    Any intel is greatly appreciated, we leave in two days!

    Nelson Hills, Searchlight, and Laughlin Hills all you have to do is get close and the single tracks are very evident. Simply head for the hills at any of the locations and start exploring.

    Laughlin has parking at a gravel pit right off the Laughlin highway (between the 95 and Laughlin).

    Searchlight, park at the gravel pit (south of Searchlight) where the high voltage power lines cross highway 95 go east for 1/4 mile and park.

    Nelson Hills, head east from the 95 (see link)
