Enjoy this new state park area along the Walker River. Access to OHV trails exists south of the park on E. Walker Rd, which is wide enough for passenger cars, and from the Bighorn Campground at the Elbow at the south end of the Park.
Several OHV routes exist out of the park, which will take the rider to historic sites such as Pine Grove, Nine Mile Ranch, old mining sites, and Bodie State Historic Park in California. From Bighorn Campground at The Elbow, riders can access several spots along the East Fork of the Walker River.
Currently, the Pitchfork Ranch at the north end of the park, and the Nine-Mile Ranch at the south end of the park are open to the public. The Rafter 7 and Flying Ranch properties are currently closed, but construction of public facilities are in the planning phase. Check for updates.
