Get a Nevada Atlas and Gazeteer online before you go. There are tons of 4WD trails. And Reno is the gateway to an amazing section of the Eastern Sierras. It's all very near California as well time permitting. Check out Backcountry Adventures by Peter Massey and Jeanne Wilson for Northern California. It all depends how much time you have, but you could wheel, hike, whatever for weeks along the corridor you're describing. I've just begun to explore the area. And I bet there are some 4WD oriented books specifically about Nevada that I haven't run across yet. Vegas vicinity trails are legendary, some in AZ (there's a Backcountry Adventures for AZ too) and some in NV.vman said:Hi guys,
Are there any places of interest between Las Vegas and Reno? I am hoping to see something along route 95. Ghost towns, historic marks, etc. Also, is there anything around Reno worth seeing?
Very funny : )Old Navy said:
Oh, that's funny. I was going to suggest the same thing. Some buddies and I drove from Oregon to Vegas (through Reno) a couple years back. We found some directions on the internet and drove down groom lake rd to the entrance.Old Navy said:
I missed this. Sounds great. Let me know. I'd be very much up for a NV run.vman said:D-rap, I am interested in exploring Nevada as well. It seems that it is much less crowded than CA and the number of historic sites make the drive worthwhile. If you're in for an excursion some time this fall, please let me know
