Part of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, Peavine Peak offers numerous trails of varying degrees of difficulty. Peavine Peak is a favorite of Reno Offroaders year round, although some trails maybe completely inaccessible after heavy snows.

There are several open mines on Peavine Peak, for you own safety, DO NOT enter the mines. There has been quite a few earthquakes in the area and the potential of a cave-in is quite high.

Some areas of Peavine Peak are private property, so please use caution and respect property boundaries.

On the north side of Peavine a N.F.S. road crosses private property where the owner has been known to threaten to shoot anyone crossing his property, use extreme caution in this area. If you are new to the area, consult with some of the locals, they should be able to tell you how to avoid this individual.
