      Hi John. Here is a map of the NCA: http://blackrockdeser...­ As you can see, Stevens Camp is at the north end of High Rock Canyon. The easiest way is to head out towards Gerlach and hop on the 447 (towards Cedarville) Head out on 8A towards Vya. There will be signs to Stevens Camp.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
