From the Promoter:

Discover Lincoln County Nevada’s hidden gem: Beaver Dam State Park. From its deep canyons to its highest peaks, the Park’s unique volcanic rock formations and juniper and pine forests offer visitors a place to unplug and unwind from the daily routine.

This, my friends, is why we started the 49er Gravel Grinder—to get people into the beautiful backcountry—a side of Nevada that most people do not experience.  Las Vegas may be the best-known destination in Nevada, but there is so much more to explore than downtown. So if you are up to the challenge, we designed this event for you, so you can enjoy our hospitality and we can showcase the place we are proud to call home!

According to Mark Orton, USA Cycling certified Level 1 coach, “gravel grinders are gravel road races and rides that combine riding on surfaces such as asphalt, gravel, dirt, some single-track trails and maintenance or B roads. The courses vary from hard-packed dirt to softball-sized rocks. “

This describes the 49er to a T! Not to scare you off, this event is intended to be a fun, yet challenging. It can be a grueling course traveling over gravel and dirt roads, some with rocky sections that may test your endurance. But we think you will agree that the spectacular vistas are worth the effort.
