Old Spanish Trail
"About a mile after leaving the pavement, driving to the staging area, you will cross an ancient and barren set of tracks: the old Spanish Trail, known later as the Mormon Road, first traveled by Spanish explorers in 1776. The Spanish used it as a link between their New Mexico and California missions. Later, the mountain men followed the trail to California. The Mormons developed the trail into a road during their westward expansion after settling in Utah."
Pick your packet up on race day at the registration tent
How do we get there!?

2- Turn south (right) toward the state park. Go past the Moapa Indian Reservation store.
3- About three miles later, the paved road bends left, but follow the dirt road straight, to the mountains. You will see the staging area down to your right.
We will put out obnoxious neon signs to help you get there!
