2021 April TD News -- Local exploring

Como Mine

The snow tires are off the Jeep and we’re ready to go exploring! Our first trip is to Brunswick Canyon in Carson City, over Sunrise Pass to the Como Mine site and on to Dayton.  Brunswick Canyon follows the Virginia City Truckee Railroad right of way and is much tamer than El Dorado Canyon located to the east.  Como is claimed to be the site where Chief Truckee was buried so it is definitely a historically significant area.  There is a steep decent into the canyon and the roads are rough with rocks, but not boulders, so it is suitable for high clearance 4WD vehicles. main member page has a link to all the 2021 planned trail runs and upon review you’ll see we are planning more frequent runs this year.  Registration is required in advance from the website and space is limited.  We look forward to seeing you!
