This trail begins 4 miles south of the intersection of US 395 and Eastlake Road (Nevada 428) in New Washoe City. Proceeding east from Eastlake Road on Jumbo Grade Road, the trail starts out as a paved road running through a residential area. After crossing a cattle guard, the trail becomes a wide, graded gravel road.
Soon desert vegetation begins to close in on the trail as it narrows and begins to climb Jumbo, circa 1943 slightly. The standard of the trail drops quickly to a rocky and rutted road making high clearance a requirement. Special Attractions: A network of 4WD trails to explore. Site of Jumbo Mining District and town site. Good for ATVs and dirt bikes. Can be connected with Western #21: Ophir Grade Trail to access Virginia City.
