Nevada has long been a haven for mountain bikers, and with routes like those found in the Egan Crest Trail System, it's easy to see why.
Just a few miles northwest of Ely in the Eagan Mountain range is the gem lover’s paradise known as the Garnet Fields Rockhound Area. This amazing location, dubbed Garnet Hill by locals, is known the country over for its beautifully rich, dark red garnets that can be found in the rhyolitic volcanic rock.
Located at the base of the White Pine Range, this picturesque recreation site has a small fishing reservoir and is a popular spot for fishing and ice fishing.
Hundreds of dirt roads wind through mountain ranges and scenic valleys in White Pine County, where you’ll find 5.7 million acres of publicly owned land. Egan Crest Trail offers several miles of dirt roads and open space.
