W: Torre Creek Pioneer

Torrey Creek Endurance ride is a 3 day 155 mile pioneer ride being held on Memorial Day weekend, May 24th - 26th 2019 in Eureka, Nevada. Ride camp will be at the fairgrounds. Some gravel roads lead to the Diamond mountain range with a mix of single track, cow and mustang, ranch and ATV trails. Mostly good footing (even on the ranch and ATV roads) with very few technical sections. 375,000 acres is available to us for this new venue. May is a great month there for prolific wildflowers and ample grass on the trail. One grove of aspen are loaded with pictures in the trees by the Peruvian sheep herders dating back to the mid-1900's. Juniper and pinyon pines lead to long climbs that can be deceptive in elevation gain but promise breathtaking views of Eureka from the top. Base camp is at 6,500 feet elevation with the course reaching climbs of almost 10,000 feet.
