In a cooperative effort with Carson City and the U.S. Forest Service, Muscle Powered constructed the Kings Canyon to Ash Canyon non-motorized, multi-use mountain bike trail. The trail is seven miles long and connects the Ash Canyon trail system to Kings Canyon Road (Lincoln Highway) and the Longview Trail. Though the trail is designed for mountain bikes, it’s suitable for runners, hikers and equestrians.
Construction began July 1, 2012, and was completed over three years later. On March 18, 2011, Muscle Powered was awarded a $5,000 community services grant for the purchase of trail construction tools and bridge materials for the Ash Creek bridge crossing. In 2012, the Great Basin Institute was awarded a $159,000 Recreational Trails Grant to construct trail on the USFS portion of the alignment. In 2013, Muscle Powered was awarded top honors in the Rec Trails program for the purchase of tools. Join us on this fantastic trail!
