I put on a ride in the Pine Nuts back in November 2020.
The original ride plan is on the old Tapatalk Forum here: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/dustdevilsmc/virginia-city-to-pine-nuts-mountains-dual-sport-ri-t773.html.
I think you have to log in to Tapatalk to view the RR.
BTW, when we started our own Forum on the DDMC web site a couple of years ago we just left all our old content on Tapatalk. That’s why our new DDMC Forum doesn’t have a lot of history.
IMHO the Pine Nuts are a great place to take either an ADV/Dual Sport or a full enduro bike. The trails are really good, with better dirt than the Virginia Range for sure (less rocky). I think it is a good place for an enduro bike or really good dual sport like an EXC because there are tons of fun hill climbs with good traction. Most were short but I went up one that felt like it climbed more than 1,000′ vertically.
Cool place for sure.
Rides: KLR650, KX250
