Last Saturday, June 7, locals and out-of-town visitors spent time exploring some of the trails in Lincoln County as part of the National Trails Day event. The Trails Day coordinator was Angel Reeve, who did a great job of organizing this year’s schedule of activities.
The Equestrian Trail Ride, led by Richard Simpson of Pioche, brought folks in from Las Vegas and Pahrump, and went through Condor Canyon. The horses and riders came into town on Friday for a fresh start Saturday morning and a chance to appreciate other aspects of Lincoln County.
Another popular trail adventure was the ATV run starting in Newman Canyon. Ken Dixon led a group of enthusiasts from Las Vegas, Utah and the local communities through the picturesque surrounding area. The group saw deer and wild horses in addition to the awesome scenery. Several folks stayed over in local hotels and enjoyed the numerous options for restaurants not normally found in small towns.
The 5K run, organized by Dr. Steve Klomp, started the earliest at 7:30 a.m. Runners enjoyed the cooler morning temperatures and a beautiful run originating at Kershaw-Ryan State Park.
Hikers also took advantage of the trails and camping facilities of Beaver Dam and Cathedral Gorge State Parks.
Again, folks were attracted to Lincoln County Trails from promotions that started at the Clark County Fair and from advertising in Southern Utah and Southern Nevada newspapers.
LC Trails Day was sponsored by Lincoln Communities Action Team (LCAT), a non-profit organization. Trails Day shirts are available at Sunshine Creations and the Brandin’ Iron, two of the event sponsors. Other supporting sponsors include: Meadow Valley Pharmacy, McCrosky’s “Y” Sevice, Shady Motel, Tillie’s, and Dr. Steven Klomp, DDS.
