CARSON CITY – The Carson Ranger District of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest has made the final decision on the Clear Creek Extension and Jacks Valley Loop Trails project. The proposed action includes the construction of approximately 8.1 miles of new non-motorized single-track trail, the decommissioning of approximately 4.65 miles of user-created trails, and the installation of signage.

“The Jacks Valley Trail project includes the construction of two trails that will expand opportunities for mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding in the vicinity of the Jacks Valley area, south of Carson City, Nevada,” Carson District Ranger Matt Zumstein said. “This is only the first step in building a trail system that will continue to improve community connectivity, reduce barriers to access, and support the environmental and social sustainability of recreation for the Jacks area.” Valley. “

One of the two trails is an extension of the existing Clear Creek Trail that begins at Jacks Valley Road. The other trail is an optional loop of the Clear Creek Trail and will be called Jacks Valley Loop.

“We are delighted that our partner, the Carson Valley Trails Association, can begin construction of these two trails this winter or early spring,” said Zumstein. “Of course, it all depends on the weather.”
