Food & Drink

If you're looking for a post-ride beer or some food, be sure to checkout Mountain Rambler Brewery. Locals and savvy visitors know that the Great Basin Bakery is the place to go. Their baked goods are made with butter, and their sandwiches are very good for a run. Thai Thai located at 703-C Airport Road (760-872-2595) is also a great option that would hold its own in a larger city.

The columns can only be visited when the reservoir is at seasonally low conditions - at other times the area is submerged beneath the lake's surface.
