Grant Range Wilderness, Quinn Canyon Wilderness, Currant Mountain WildernessAdd to my Trip Planner
This sizable pocket of lofty peaks and deep canyons shoulders the southwestern side of Ely. The southernmost Quinn Canyon Range gives way to the Grant Range, where Troy Peak dominates the landscape. The Quinn Canyon Range also houses one the the state's largest populations of bighorn sheep. Farther north is the Currant Mountain Wilderness, which tops out at the 11,513' Currant Mountain. The Troy Peak offers superb views of the entire area. Hikers must follow primitive trails or chart their own routes in this challenging, remote country.
Elevation: 7,000' to 12,000'
Getting There: From the State Route 318, turn left just past Sunnyside onto the Kirch Wildlife Management Area Rd. Drive 23 miles passing the Hot Creek Springs campground, and turn right on Scofield Canyon Rd.
