Default Rock Crawling at Moon Rocks

Went out to Moon Rocks Thurs. to punish my RC crawler a bit. I love that place. I just wish the a-holes wouldn't throw beer bottles all over and try to tear down the trees.

Nice picks, love the one with the V crack, seen lots of rigs go over there. Did you go to the comp?? I dont remember seeing your rig there.

It's very easy to get there (just a few miles outside of Pyramid Lake).

If you are coming from Fallon take highway 80 north, exit Pyarmid highway in Sparks and turn right. Drive 15 miles and exit at Winnemucca Ranch Road (there is a sign): http://maps.google.com/maps?rls=en&q...=1&sa=N&tab=wl Just drive straight until you hit the dirt road and continue for another mile or two. You will see Moon Rocks on your left at a sign welcoming you to the Happy Valley OHV area: http://maps.google.com/maps?rls=en&q...=1&sa=N&tab=wl

The area is eaisly accesable by passenger car. This is probably the best spot for RC crawling anywhere around Reno. Its big with lots of steep climbs and a variety of obsticles. Tons of fun. I go out there 2-3 times a month.

Yes, I usually go there a couple times a month. Sun Valley RP is really close to Whip It Raceway and Hobby in Panther Valley where I hang out a lot. Otherwise, my favorite place in Reno is Wingfield Park, an island in the middle of the Truckee River downtown.
