North of Reno and southwest of Pyramid Lake, the Hungry Valley / Moon Rocks OHV Area is open to all OHV users. It is 20 acre open riding area of rock and sand. Moon Rocks has more than enough trails to keep riders of all levels satisfied.

There are great beginner level trails that run parallel to Winnemucca Ranch Road. To access the more expert trails you will want to head into the hills above the "Moon Rocks" or to the north of the upper staging area. In the flat plateaus accessible from the main road you will find several areas that are suitable to family riding, whether that be in the form of large flat areas, mild hill climbs, or relatively flat GP type courses.
To reach the trailhead the intersection of I-80 and SR 445 in Reno/Sparks, go north on SR 445 (Pyramid Lake Rd.) for 17 miles. Turn left on Winnemucca Ranch Road and travel about 6 miles. Turn left on a dirt road (you will see rocks on the left.) Go about 1 mile to the lower staging area. Another 0.5 miles is the upper staging area.
