Surprise Valley

You don’t have to be a history buff to have a good time in Surprise Valley. It’s has been a vacation destination for rock-hounds, hot spring enthusiasts and back-country explorers. It’s great place to go birding or you can go fishing in the nearby lakes. There’s horseback riding, hiking and it’s easy bike riding throughout the Valley. At the end of every summer, Burning Man holds its big event. The ”Burners” pass through here on their way south into Nevada’s Black Rock Desert which is about an hour’s drive. In October, Fort Bidwell has a big parade honoring the Native American Elders that were forced to go to the government boarding schools when they were children. It’s put on by the local Paiutes at the Gidutikid Reservation with an entire weekend full of activities. There are also a couple Old Car Shows that drive to Fort Bidwell and the town puts on a big BBQ to celebrate.
